    I didn't think I could wear a braided ponytail. My coworkers said the style made me look really young.

    Cute! It does make you look younger. But you already have a youthful face.

    I got a hair cut today. My hair dresser was impressed with how healthy it is. So being natural is working out although I would like to use heat more lol. I'm thinking of getting it braided this summer. Here are some pics from the cut.

    @Sharpened, I tried banding with elastic ribbon STRIPS instead of ties. Most of the video tutorials advise banding AFTER the wng has dried. I'm not trying to let my hair shrink up at all (trying to reduce knots and tangles), so I've been banding on damp hair.

    The roots are a little undefined due to the stretching. I have a runaway piece that needs blending. ;) Otherwise, not too bad a process and look.

    You and your hair are too cute for words, @YvetteWithJoy . Are you going to try root-to-tip banding, bigger or smaller sections next?

    Aw, thanks! I'm going to try 6 then 8 bands. I liked how fast creating 4 bands went.

    It turned out nice. How long did it take your hair to dry?

    Thanks, Faith! The feedback helps as I'm trying to hone down on some styling techniques and figure out what works.

    It took about a day and a half to dry, despite my having squeezed out the excess water in my hair. I had washed and banded damp hair in the morning. I don't think that's best. I think I should have washed at around 7 PM, got under my dryer for an hour or two, and then let it air dry overnight.

    In Naptural85's tutorial video, she squeezed out the excess water before drying, then let her wash and go fully dry before banding, and then banded. I will try that next.

    I wore my hair out fully shrunken the other day just because I couldn't be bothered to style it.

    I tried to revitalize my 3-day old puff by braiding up a side bang, applying CurlyProverbz DIY oil, and flashing my hair under the shower water.

    Used wet line this morning. Was originally just going to do a puff but then put on my whole head.

    Mother's Day twist out featuring Curl Prep gel.

    It didn't dry in 36 hours, even with 2 hours under my HairFlair attachment.

    The twist pics are horrible, but the twist-out is pretty bad, a mix of twist-out, fingercoils, and frizz:

    It is apparent I am clueless....

    How did I miss this?!??

    @Sharpened, first: You are far from clueless, ma'am! (Where is that spanking icon?) You know about catnip and hair. 'Nuff said, okay? Clueless? Nah. :kiss:

    Second: You hair is so shiny!!! It looks so healthy. My goodness!

    Third: We have to start SOMEWHERE when we are gaining styling skills. That's just the nature of the beast. The more you trial and practice and reflect and tweak, the faster you become one of those naturals on the board telling others, "Oh, just flat twist your hair. Look at mine. Takes me no more than 30 minutes!" :look:

    Fourth: Look at that length! Niiiiiiiiiice. :yep: :smile:

    Thanks so much, @bluenvy. :kiss: I really, really appreciate you telling me that. It means a lot: I miss the way my long relaxed hair framed my face. Also, because of my high shrinkage percentage, it takes a VERY long time for any growth to translate to the LOOK of growth. Sometimes these 2 facts dampen my excitement about hair.

    But, your post really helps me to appreciate my hair! I'm looking at it like, "You are heart-shaped. You are pretty. You're cute!!!" :lol: :smile:

    Enjoy your hair at this length now cause it will get longer and you will miss it at this length. Trust me you will.
