last nite took my twists down because after only a week they started looking a uggghhh.. today I have errands so i'm going to try pookaloo83's (thanks for the link Pook) bun method and see how that works out.. later I'll co wash/dc/moisturize then see how I'm feeling after that to decide on what to do next-if anything
Yesterday I went to the Dominican salon and got a fresh relaxer. I will be wearing my hair down today and going back to my buns and updoes tomorrow. I am amazed at how healthy my hair is and how much I have been preventing major split ends. I didn't even need a trim. I just had a light dusting. I can't take pictures but I know I am getting a kindle fire for Christmas so I will post pictures then.
Two weeks in with my smallish twists. I dced them with AO GPB, washed, then moisturized/sealed with Bee Mine Luscious and castor/grapeseed oil. I put them in two braids and tied them up with an ouchless band, then slapped a headband on top of that. Looks "meh", but I'm not going anywhere or trying to impress right now. I'll probably keep them in another week.
I ordered mine from this ebay vendor http://stores.ebay.co.uk/happycurls, she is a sweetheart and her products re great quality!
I will say get two set of 48 to avoid frizzy hair, I like the extra long wide and the extra long-narrow!
-PYT I did another curlformer set yesterday and I did a number of things different. I ensured my hair was soaking wet prior to installing each curlformer and skipped setting lotions and gels. I only used a leave-in spritz, QB CTDG and castor oil at the ends.
O.M.Geeeee! My set same out 100x better than the last one. More hold (interestingly, because I skipped the holding products), set was smoootthhh, and my hurr is looking so purrtty! I was planning to twist immediately on taking them down, but umm NO. LOL.
Happy Holidays ladies! I put loose twists into my hair on Sunday and not only did they take way less time to complete, I love them! Im not sure how long i'll leave them in. Probably no longer than 2 weeks. I will post pics when I look not busted. I've seriously been doin absolutely nothing since I went on holiday break. Lol
bajandoc86 I'm still loving these curlformers myself...but! I've been noticing a lot of ssks. Maybe that's unavoidable with our hair type but I'm on the verge of going insane I'm tempted to do another curlformer set and flat iron in a couple days...ya know, to give myself a good trim!
