It was in two flat twists in front, and on one side the twist got bigger and bigger all the way around the back. I had combed my hair out beforehand, starting from a dry, shrunken fro to give it a little volume in the big twist.
I wore it like this for 3 days. And I did something dumb in that time. My girl had left a sample size packet of "Blue Magic" at my house, which I found while cleaning up. I kept it for a while to give it back to her, then it struck me one night that it was probably $.99 and I was keeping it more as a piece of clutter then for her. I looked at it and then, EVEN THOUGH I know my hair hates petroleum based products, I opened it and used it on my hair on day two- to "protect" it.... Oh it lay down pretty stiffly alright. I figured it couldn't do any bad- just perhaps no good.
So thennnn. I was super curious about the take down 2 days later.
Looks OK here, but it was sooooooo sticky and dry! Like parched and greasy, with all my little splits running for their lives up the strands of my hair.
I wore it out that night pulled back kinda like this:
I did a 20 min search and destroy mission on the semi-straight hair when I got home and then put a half tub of Yes to Carrots conditioning mud deep conditioner in overnight.
I did something completly different for my hair this week to compensate for the wrong I'd done. It includes a lot of Knot today and liquid grease lol! Next post.
