Thank you for responding. What did you use to pull your hair back?
I either use a Goody elastic band or Scuunchi?? brand.
Headed into week 3 on Sunday.
I think I'm going to get Boho locs for my next protective style.
This is some kind of up roll & tuck....as usual.
Your hair is so beautiful
In this updo
Ohhh these look interesting. Thanks for sharing.
I went with a crochet instead of the boho locs
I’m wearing the first style
Wait... is that really crochet!?! I would never have guessed that was not your hair! Please spill the deets! What hair did you use? Did you do it yourself or have it done professionally? It’s absolutely lovely!
Thank you, I usually have someone install it for me. Its just marley hair you use to get kinky twists. If you blow dry it and then curl it with soft rollers it looks like this. After awhile I use my revlon heat brush and wear it straight @Pygmy_puff You can braid it up and dip it in hot water for a braidout look,
I keep coming back to this style. It is gorgeous and one I aspire to. Is your hair blow dried here or did you style it wet? I feel like my texture may be similar to yours, but I’m not sure. This is just beautiful.
Thank you so much! After I wash my hair, I let it air dry in about 10 braids to stretch. Since I used a center part in this bun, I made sure that I did that first, then I put my hair in the braids to dry. Oh, I also apply the Kimmaytube leave-in on each section before I braid. I use Fruit of the Earth aloe vera gel along my edges with a scarf so that they will lay down. My hair tends to get "straighter" the longer I wear the bun.
Thank you!!! It is a really lovely style on you!
Protective style for the next two to three weeks
Mini Twist life...
Good day ladies haven't posted in quite some time! My favorite protective hair style yes I wear all year long.
Once a month I protein treatment and deep condish.
I wash and color every two weeks.
I am 10 years natural and finally past APL because I have had so many set backs . I only apply heat to my hair once a year for a length check so that's coming up December when the weather down here in Florida is cooler.
On Saturday, I finished putting in some twists with a mix of black and off-black Marley hair (so that my hair would blend better). I brushed the hair out before twisting it in. I want to leave my hair like this for a while. Not sure how I will manoeuvre wash day, because I haven't washed my hair in this style of twists before- even though I've previously worn them for extended periods of time.
Top knot bun
I’m wearing the first style
3 protective styles for the winter time
I think this wig is my new favorite protective style
Now that looks like a wig I can learn with & not be afraid that it doesn’t look like my hair.
