Hey kurlies. I had a FAB hair day when I tried this hairstyle out a couple weeks ago. I was inspired to do this style from one of Naptural85's videos (I can't find it! I would have shared the link to it.) and thought it was soooo cute. She did the vid a while ago and when I was deliberating what to do with my hair recently for my cousin's birthday dinner, this style came to mind. I'm glad I tried it. It came out great, I absolutely loved it.
HOW I ACHIEVED THE LOOK
I did mine on old hair, meaning it wasn't freshly washed and had been stretched over time from me moisturizing and plaiting (4 big plaits) it every night before bed. I used the products pictured below to moisturize and set my hair. That gel is pretty good and is all natural. (Cincy naturals, I got it at E &D Beauty Supply Store on Kemper Rd by Tri-County Mall. I'm not usually keen on supporting Koreans in this way but the owners there are very nice (, they have some product knowledge) and give excellent customer service.)
|Products Used: homemade hair mist (water, aloe vera gel and grapeseed oil), Dr Naturals Superior Locking Gel and Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Mask|
I sectioned and put my hair into 6 large flat twists because I wanted bodacious waves and kurls. If you want a more defined wave and kurl pattern, you'd want to do more flat twists then. I sealed the very ends with a little Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Mask and created a bantu knot with each end and pinned into place at the scalp to secure. I tied a scarf around my head and let set for about 4 hours. I set my hair around noon that day and by 4:30p, I had taken them down and lightly fluffed and seperated minimally (because I wanted to keep as much definition as possible) until the desired look was achieved.
I will definitely do this again. Maybe for Thanksgiving dinner this week. Stay naturally fly.
