My birthday was yesterday! So...I'm officially 29. :-) On my last leg before 30.... I wanted to do something different with my hair besides the usual 'fro so I tweeted late the night before that I would be rollersetting my hair. I was up at 2am doing this, but I was determined. Been trying to stretch my hair for awhile now. I washed & dc'ed as normal except for this time I dc'ed with Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat. I had a little left from purchasing it a long time ago so I decided to finish off the bottle. I bought this after Tracy recommended it. I used Mixed Chicks Leave In Conditioner to set the hair (remember I won a set a few months ago?). Then...I braided my hair and rolled it with random rollers. I chose to braid it because ya'll know I'm partial to the braid out look. This time I was going for a more curly look. Next time, I'll twist & roll. I chose to braid it just to stretch it more.
I undid one of the bottom braids & roller....
Some of the braids were still wet when I awoke the next day (remember I was doing this at 2am). I unraveled them a little...not much though. It wasn't as 'curly' as I thought it would be. No worries! Still gotta rock it. ;-) It took me sooooo long to decide on a hairstyle. This is what I came up with. Basically, it's a side puff with a bang. I brushed my hair up, twisted the side & some of the back.
My "other way around" outfit: The top is a skirt & the bottom is a shirt.
Voila! I LOVED IT. I wish I'd thought to do this style when I was relaxed. I could've rocked this with a braidout.... For the last 6.5 months, I've just been rocking my 'fro (which I love), but now I'm going to be trying some different styles. Ya'll knew me just rocking my 'fro wouldn't last for long. I have to create hairstyles. That's just how I am. It took me awhile though because I really love rocking my 'fro, but now I'm getting a little bored so let the creative styling begin! The 'fro will forever be my go to style though. So easy & convenient! Oh & I forgot to tell you ladies...when I took my hair down last night my head was sore. : \ I blame me because like I said my natural hair is not used to hairstyles. haha The hubs relieved it with a head massage. Wish I could get those everyday!!!
