Drying, Moisturizing and Styling My Hair
Ok! All done. As you can see, my hair wanted to desperately shrink up the bands kept it stretched out.
Side view. It did shrink some but the point is that it will not be tangled up as I start to work with it now section by section.
Here, I’ve taken one of the band off so and stretched my hair so you can see how well the banding worked. At this point my hair is practically tangle free and I can run a wide medium tooth comb or even my Denman brush through my hair very easily. In fact, I though there was a pic of me doing that, but I don’t see it in my down load. If I run across it, I’ll stick it in here. But you’ll just have to trust me on this. At this point, I am NOT fighting any tangles!
To dry your hair, take the towel and blot a section of hair. Do not rub or roughen up. Keep your hair stretched out to avoid letting your hair shrink and avoid tangling. Or all this work will have been for nothing.
Work your way down the section of hair…not up. Again, you’re trying not to roughen up your cuticles.
Once you’ve gotten as much water out of you hair as you can, go ahead and twist it up. At this point I don’t use any product on it. I used to put moisturizer in my hair at this point but it just seemed to not do much good. My hair would still feel dry to the touch the next day…just as if I hadn’t put any moisturizer in it. Last time, I let my hair air dry over night and moisturized the next day. My hair doesn’t feel horrible but I’m thinking it could feel better.
Anyway, do this to every section of hair until your finished. Should take that long cause at this point, you’re not detangling.
Wallah! I”m done. Look at my friend’s little grandson Xayvier. Not sure if I spelled that right. He’s such a cutie pie. We call him Zay for short. Or his Ga’ma calls him Poopers. I’m sure he’ll hate that when he gets older. 🙂
Last pic. The next day, I applied my comb thru moisturizer and came up with this new do. I call it a Double Flat Twist Puff…or something like that. If I had to, this do is quick and simple enough that I could do it immediately after I shampoo. And if I wanted it to be a protective style, all I would have to do it to make my puff one big twist. At night, I simply remove the band and the slider barrette and make one big braid in the back. Since I’m adding this pic a couple of days after doing these shampoo pics, I’ve discovered that my broken of edges only allow me to get two days our of this before I have to restyle. But it’s such a quickie, I actually don’t mind. Anyway, click here, to see more views.
