My protective style challenge is finally over! *does a happy dance* 21 days of keeping my hands out of my hair (except for wash days) was a lot to withstand, but I enjoyed the styles that I came up with. I think I will do them ONCE in a while, but I like to keep my options open. I don’t particularly care for PSC because I feel boxed in and it’s not like I HAVE to do it, yanno? I just decided to torture myself… Because that’s not the ONLY way hair grows. Healthy hair comes with proper care, but enough of that.
You don’t even understand how much I missed my coif… it’s unreal. I twisted my hair on unwashed (been since Saturday), stretched hair and used my trusty perm rods (blue) to set them. In the morning, I unraveled them and VOILA!:
I can’t wait until tomorrow when it is even bigger! I love the fact that my shaved sides, although they have caused me to lose some volume, are completely disguised. My natural hair is so versatile and awesome (yea, it’s awesome)! I recorded the following video to supplement the written tutorial I already have for this style. I actually substituted my Shea Moisture for the flaxseed gel. I still got similar results, but I am in love with my flaxseed gel. My hair is so shiny and so moisturized because of it, and it’s really easy to make and maintain.
Enjoy the video. I am also taking video requests… I’ll be uploading another one soon! xoxo.
