Puff



I turned my braid out fro into a puff. after day four


I plan to leave it like this until sunday or monday (for 4-5 days)
I used water and aloe vera gel and a silk scarf to tie the edges down. I let the scarf sit around the edges for an hour then took it off...







Time for a new hairdo:




I did a diagonal part first and flat twisted all the way down to my ear, then did another diagonal part for where the twists were suppose to go, and flat twisted the middle section....

It wasn't like I planned it out or anything, I just went with the flow


I kinda really liked the style I did in december and couldn't think of any other better style so I just copied myself lol...its very similar except I switched the direction of the twists and flat twists....


I braided the roots in the front half of my head and in the middle section of my head...I did the same thing with the last twist/flat twist style and liked the outcome but I just regretted the take down hence the reason why I only did this in the front half of my hair....



It does make your hair look thinner at the roots but I think that the twists lay better with the roots braided and last longer this way....





and I am not balding..lol...I braided the roots at the top and sides but not the back ;) It gives the style more bounce and movement and is less likely to get smooshed down and stuff



I found the sequins hat I was looking for!!!!



Ya'll should have seen me up in forever 21...lol...bout to knock people over trying to get to it.....
But forreal though, I'm going to try to compose an album just full of hats and hair accessories and things like that to show the different ways you can jazz up a protective style to show the versatility of it and how you can go weeks at a time with protective styles and never get bored....



COMPARISON:




Shrunken twists done right after major trim/2nd bc vs. my hair now...

lol, I can just imagine me trying to do twists this big on my hair back then.....hot mess.....also, although I was quite upset over losing inches from cutting off damaged ends (why do we get all emotional over losing hair that was damaged and jacking our overall look up?) I actually like the way I look with my hair at that length.....not as bad as I was making out to be....


Literally Right After I Took My Braids Down:


I couldn't believe how boff (sp) my fro was! So I stopped and took a picture....

I don't know what has been happening with my hair but I have been picking up lint or some gummy like stuff in my hair. I don't know if it is the castor oil or what but whatever it is its encouraging my hair to tangle on the ends.....
cant win for losing

 

Pulled it Back Into a Puff:


....for now...I'm not feeling it because I detangled my hair as I went along (with my fingers)therefore my hair is looking like a hawt mess...but it will do for now...the less I have to mess with it the happier I am :)

Then it morphed into a pony puff:


as pony puff as it is going to get for me anyway...lol....this will be the first and last time I will rock one of these things...TOO TIGHT...

I just brushed my dry hair back into submission and threw a scrunchie thing around it....
