So a few years ago I was out every weekend with friends, but lately I am in bed by 10 on the weekends. Well two of my friends decided that we all needed to go out and blow of some steam from a long work week, and I ended up in a raggae club in a dress and heels. Which if you guys haven't heard me say this by now I am a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl so it is very rare that I will go out to a club and even more rare that I would have on a dress and heels. Anyhoo, we went out and I danced until 3 am which was a first especially because it was a raggae club and I could barely understand the music, but I had so much fun!
So I was in serious need of a protective style I can always tell because I become frustrated with my hair and think about shaving my head. So I washed my hair and parted it in half and flat twisted the front and then placed the back and ends in medium sized twists. I plan to keep this style in for about 2-3 weeks while I plan what my next protective style will be...stay tuned!
So I'm still recovering from that roller set, I deep conditioned my hair last night and then washed it this morning. I used my new love GVP Paul Mitchell's "The Conditioner" and Ecostyler gel. First off I used a old school conditioning cap that I picked up from the beauty supply store. My friend wanted me to install Marley twist in her hair and while she grabbed the hair I roamed the aisle and found this cap. Anyhoo, once I got home last night I put some of the Koilsbynature into my hair pulled it in a high bun and put the cap on. I slept in it for about 8 hours and then washed my hair. It was so soft and super easy to detangle, I was in and out of the shower in 20 minutes. So I wanted to do something quick with my hair and did this style below. See the pics below and keep an eye out for the review.
Ugh I don't even know where to start...ok so I had plans to take my twists done since they had frizzed up on me badly from hot yoga a few weeks ago. I went to Sally's and decided to pick up some rollers for a roller set and figured it would be a great way to stretch my hair without too much heat. I left 30 minutes later with rollers and hairpins and ready to start a challenge Friday night. I took my twists out and washed my hair as usual and then started the process. First of rolling my curly hair on a roller was difficult. I spent an hour putting in three. I got frustrated pulled my hair in a bun and went to sleep. The next day I woke up ready to try again, I went to a beauty supply store and found the magnetic rollers with snaps so I wouldn't need to use hairpins. I headed home and rinsed my hair to try again, I really had high hopes it would work. So I managed to roll all of my hair and it took me two hours and fifteen minutes. I think that was a sign then that this wasn't gonna work. I sat and sat under the dryer for what seemed like hours. Once I hit the hour and a half mark I couldn't take the dryer any longer and there was no way in hell I would try to sleep in these things. Well I took the rollers down and my roots still had lots of texture but my ends had big lose curls. I wanted to cry like sit in the middle if my bathroom and cry, I had spent the past two days on my hair and it was a total flop. I'm sitting here now typing this with my hair in a semi straight braid and wavy roots ...I might try again...well no time soon. I just don't want to look at another roller for a long time. Stay tuned.
