can i just say that i am LOVING the fact that i am really treating my hair as well as i can since starting this 30x30?! this wasn't supposed to be a hair blog by any means, but i've been posting every week about this!
after being in a teacher bun rut for 3 years, it feels so liberating to have my hair out in all its magnificence (i'm really not that cocky, but this hair was everything for me last week).
i only got ONE pic, of course... smh. last week was so ridiculously busy - it isn't even funny. but this style definitely will make its way into my rotation!
washed with bentonite clay cleanser
deep conditioned with avocado oil
made 14 twists with argan oil and air-dried the rest of the day
heat stretched via alicia james' method
pin curled in 11 sections overnight
note: next time i will create 12 - i did one less pincurl on the left side and it looked noticeable to me!
unpinned curls and fluffed with argan oil
i maintained it for a few days with four bantu knots at night, but it got obliterated in all the rain we got in blacksburg last week. i ended up braiding it, thinking i would wear a cute braid-out at trillectro, but then it rained there, too. #salty
ps. i am thinking about going back to mini twists for a while because my hands have been in my hair like crazy but i am only willing to do that if i can really find styles that will make me feel as beautiful as this one did - wearing your crown and glory is all about spreading your light!
