My Curly Afro
Today, I took my bantu knots out and wore my curly afro. I LOVE big hair and want it to get so big that people will look at it and say, "Look out!' : ) It was finally dry and I wanted to see how the curls looked. I love it and can see the definition of the knots, but I won't pull them apart as much next time. The style will last longer too. Natural gals know just how real it can get when we wear our hair out. I love every minute of it though. How about you?
For the takedown, I massaged some avocado oil into my hands when I took my knots down. Now, don't ask me why I used an oil because I never do that, but I watched a YouTube video of taking down knots and said, "let me try that." I don't like that my hair is so oily to the touch. Knowing that if I use anything for the takedown, I use my Moisturize Me. Lesson learned, if it isn't broke, don't fix it.
To preserve my style while I sleep, I put my hair in a loose, high ponytail and put on my bonnet. The natural community calls it a pineapple. It's a loose messy ponytail but my hair isn't even enough for a neat pineapple. This'll preserve your curls without flattening them while you're asleep. In the past I couldn't do this because my hair was too short, but I tried many of the small pineapples; they didn't work either. I'll keep you updated on what it looks like when I take it down. I'd like to get at least 2 hairstyles out of a twist or bantu style.
Starting July 1st, I'm going to be doing a 30 day castor oil challenge. If you're looking for thicker, fuller hair & growth, then join me these next 30 days. Details will be in the next post. Until next time.....
