Happy new year guys ! I hope 2014 is filled with joy, prosperity, happiness,peace and love .
I spent this Christmas with friends and family, eating, laughing and falling in love with my hair. As you would have seen in my last post, I took down my locks about six months ago. My head is now full of loose, mid length, 4c ish hair….and it gives me life !!!
Styling my hair has always been challenging, and I ended up watching Youtube natural hair experts in an attempt to learn how to style my hair. Hands down, I live for the curly hairstyles and I have to big up Jouelzy, CharyJay and my NaturalSisters for their tutorials. See links below
Here are three reasons,why curly Hairstyles work for me :
Reason 1 – they are easy to do and fairly easy to maintain. I am a dunce with my hair at this point, and so to actually have a twist out worth photographing is a miracle! You literally need clean hair, some oil, eco styler or shea butter. Watch a couple tutorials and learn how to double strand twist, bantu knots and using rods. Tip, if you are doing a bantu knot on wet hair, give it time to dry hunny….most annoying to have saggy kinda curly , frizzy hair.
Reason 2 – .You can style the curly hairstyle . Many times my curly dos lack shape and kinda poke out all over the place. I once had a medusa looking twist out….not cute. So bobby pins are “hair” to the rescue. I love the fact that I can pull my curly fro to the side or wear a faux hawk and look flawless.
Reason 3 – Curly makes frizz cute. Now when I say frizz, I mean frizzy, straggly, hairs that rebel against ecostyler and hate moisturiser. With my curly dos , a little frizz gives my hair personality. It’s not horrible and can pass as my neat- messy look.
My next hairstyles will be be protective…I’ll let you know how that goes. Till then , be safe !
