But sometimes it's just so easy and fast.
Just before the holiday break I went to a few holiday gatherings at friends houses. A Friday night and then a Sat night back to back. One was a wine party and the other a game party. I wore my hair big for these too but didn't stretch it out with heat, only pineappling at night. I used Castor oil, Nubian heritage Honey Blackseed leave-in and Wetline Extreme gel. I diffused pretty well before going out into the cold, so it worked out pretty well.
I didn't get pictures on the first 2 days but here is day 3 hair :)
Around the house I had it like this, and by the end of that week I was wearing it like below and in buffs to work. I have to wear a headband when I wear it out now because I'm growing my bang out again, for now. So my hair hits awkwardly on my face when not stretched.
