Partial updo on roller set hair

I want to grow my hair our for the next 2 months, particularly in back in preperation for my next summer cut.  I decided that the best way for me to do this without driving myself crazy meanwhile is to experiment with up-dos for a few months.

I roller set my hair on as few large rollers as I could manage- which still ended up being a lot lol.  I used Giovanni Direct leave in, Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Styling Mousse (winner!) and Shea moisture's spray oil stuff (scored from last week's Walgreens sale). I sat for at least 2 hours and it was alllllmost dry when I went to bed.  I put it in large double strand twists with large purple flexible curlers at the ends. 

This morning the back was still too frizzy to wear out into the overcast and HOT day here (over 80!) so I devised this updo.  I didn't have time to style the back.  But I will do that tonight to try and get a few days ouf of this style before switching to another up-do. The front is just a HUGE, loose double strand flat twist.  I took the end of it and coiled it around to make a "flower' and used a bobby pin to secure it.  The sides are regular flat twists.

hehe- homeboy in the BG is like why is this chick taking picts of herself on Metro...
I got a compliment on the train on the way in from a fellow natural- so I feel encouraged to keep this one up for a few days :-)

I also feel like my Native American blood is showing up today lol.  Maybe it's the jewelry or the changed texture of my hair. The Cherokee is in there pretty prominently all the time waiting to bust out!  I see it in my cheeks and in my Grandmother's pictures- RIP.
