You are workin that wig. It looks really nice on you. How often are you wearing buns?
That is cute. I love curly pony tails. Why don't you challenge yourself to try a new style?
I hear ya girl.Lol I don't have the will power.
I'm a recovering heat addict.
The more I play in my hair. . . the more I'll be tempted straighten it.
Its best I get it back out of the way as quickly as possible.
But over time, I'll definitely come back and test some things out!
Here are pics of one of my favorite protective styles (two flat twists, pinned up on the sides).
After I wash, deep condition and moisturize my hair, I do this style in the shower (only takes a few minutes), and I'll put my scarf on at night. In the mornings, I'll mist it with plain ole water. This style can last me from five to seven days (yes, it'll still look nice and neat).
Please share pics of your protective styles here.
I just tie it down with my scarf once I get in from work. I get up early in the morning (Monday through Friday), and I refuse to wrestle with my hair that early in the morning.@Allandra How do you keep your twist updo so neat? Once I sleep on mine it is OVA! I have to do it over again lol. The twists start to puff up in various places and it doesn't look right. *sigh* (Thanks for starting this thread. I look forward to seeing what the ladies have to add!)
Thanks. Girl, I peep your album every time I see you've put something in it, and I've gotten a few ideas from viewing your pics. Thanks for sharing.I like your flat-twist style, @Allandra
I really need to practice flat-twisting. Mine don't look neat.
Here are just a few of the protective styles I wear regularly - mostly buns. My hair does fine with daily re-styling. The only time I wear a bun for two days is when my hair is in it's curly state. After two days, I co-wash and restyle. Most of these pics are with blowdried or flatironed hair because when my hair is curly I only wear a messy bun. I have pictures of another 30 or so in my profile albums.
