color & twist!

So I decided I wanted random highlights thru out my hair, predominantly in the front, instead of a solid color (easier to maintain). My sister did it with Joico Vero K-Pak Color.

Afterwards I washed with Giovanni 50/50 shampoo, Dc with Joico moisture balm & Humectress with heat for 40 minutes. Then Giovanni Direct leave in & Dr. Bronners leave in, some Curly whip on top of that & finally sealed with castor oil.

Straightened my hair....

So I don't what happened but I got this electric straightening comb from Sally's & I decided to try it out on my hair. And NO! My hair was not prepped for a straightening episode, I was in twists with castor oil. I initially intended to just do a few of my twists to satisfy my curiosity...I put some Ultrasheen Creme press on the sections as I went....the process was so simple, the comb glided thru my hair, my hair was so silky, I had done half of my head before I knew it.

So I did my whole head & here are my results. I was pleasantly surprised by the thickness & length. Had to do the ponytails for fun!

Updo - My french roll!!

I am finally able to to do a traditional updo >>> a french roll! And due to the thickness of my hair, I don't need any aids, socks, foam or bumpitts !! I didnt use any gel, so I did use quite a few hair pins to keep hairs in place. In the future when recreating this style, I would definitely use some gel or aloe vera to hold hairs in place. And of course, some decorative accents! ;)
