The curls/twists have fallen some, so I'm liking it better as the day goes on. I did it on dry hair. I dampened my hair first with aloe vera juice, and added some Creme of Nature Argan Oil wrap lotion and coconut oil. I did 5 flat twists (like cornrows) and curled the ends with flexirods. I've never done flat twists before. I'm excellent at cornrowing, but just using 2 pieces of hair feels awkward to me. My ends seem a little frizzy- I'm not sure what I did wrong. Maybe I need to smooth the ends better on the roller. The curls are defined, but I wish the twists were bigger. My relaxed hair is so thin that I don't know how I could get a more wavy look with the twists...if I do less than 5 twists, will more of my roots show? I definitely need to work on getting better at these styles. Maybe next time I'll sit under the dryer for a little while to try to get smoother results. I have to admit it's been nice today going out and not worrying about the rain. Normally on rainy and windy days like today, I make sure I have a hat on.
I also need to do something about my platinum hair around my edges. The semi permanent color I've been using (Adore) isn't working anymore. I may re-visit henna again.
My roots are THICK. I have about an inch and a half of new growth, but I still have no idea what my true texture is. Although this style isn't a huge success, the fact that I've been able to keep my air dried hair moisturized for 2 days is a wonderful thing that I'm still shocked about.
I'm going to the gym tonight, so I'll probably co-wash and try again!
