This is why I stopped looking at people's hair albums. I see a cute style, hear about how wonderful they felt after they conditioned their hair, then next thing you know I'm taking my hair down trying to do something else!
The flat twist/twist combo lasted all of 9 days. Womp womp. I usually like to wear my styles for 2-3 weeks at a time. The less manipulation the better. And I am on a mission to one day get hair all the way down to my knee caps (don't hate!). Okay, I'll settle for midback length or tailbone length at the max.
So far I only took down the back. It took me about 30 minutes to take down and four hours to put in. Womp womp.
But as you can see below, the front is busted.
That is why I took the whole thing down. Well one reason. Like I said when I first did them, I did a rush job. And in my experience, rush jobs without doing the proper techniques= flat twists that get really old looking a lot sooner than they should. I thought I could pull off a twistout/flat twist look but after these pics, um, bump that idea too.
Another reason I am taking it down now is because my hair is a little dirty from all this World of Curls Comb out spray. I have a lot of buildup that can easily be removed with just water alone. I could just rinse my hair and get it out, but I don't want to. Lol.
The last reason why I am ready for change is because Wednesday will be me and my boyfriend's 8 year anniversary and I want to look half way cute. I'm all for frizz and all that jazz, but right now, I want a fresh style. Ya know? So the flat twists are coming down as soon as I post this up, and a new style will be in by Tuesday with updates soon following. Thanks for stopping by, Luh ya!
Oh yeah, wait wait wait! I measured my hair today and it is 4.5 inches!!!!! My hair is on the grow!
