How about a little hair talk? Up for that?
Well, last week when my hair was still straight, I decided to try to give my flat ironed hair some "beach waves" via bantu knots. Because my flat ironed hair is VERY resistant to any type of curl--it was necessary to spritz each section with a little water before putting in the knot. Don't worry, one squirt isn't enough to revert my hair as it doesn't really penetrate my hair shaft before it evaporates. Anyway, each section I applied coconut oil and then gave a squirt down the length of it and then proceeded to put in the knot. This is what I ended up with. It was 5 knots:
After leaving them in for about half a day, this is what I ended up with.
I didn't get a full head shot, as the waves weren't as uniform as I'd wanted. That's something I will have to work on--making sure all of the knots are the same size with the same amount of tension.
I decided to pin my hair to one-side and wore it out to a reggae party with one of my gal pals.
By this time the waves had fallen some, but you get the idea. Next time, I will use some kind of "hold"-ing product as well.
Also, may I mention that Sean Paul was there, and he's not that short! I assume all celebrities are tiny....because well, they usually are. Though, that mohawk gave him a couple extra inches. haha
Have a spectacular weekend!!
