How Does It Look - 10/10/11 Protective Style Challenge
Hi There and Happy Monday. I have been doing my hair since 11am this morning and just finished at 630pm. That really is not that bad although I have a small area in my crown that is incomplete because I ran out of the marley hair.
I decided this week to do my normal wash routine except that I slept with my deep conditioner in my hair and prepoo'd for about 7 hours. I bought some Marley braid hair to try my hand at some marley kinky twists. When I started I had no idea what I was getting in to but I continued none the less. Well first of all I should have split the hair in half because these individual twists are alot heavier than I would have expected. I was hoping to eventually curl the ends but will have to see if the weight will be too much for my strands. Therefore, I decided to do a quick updo because I had to go and bowl my league.
I will be purchasing another pack of hair to finish the crown sometime tomorrow or wednesday. I tried my hand at them before I would go an pay someone $180 to do them. I think that I definitely have it down but since this is the first try I could see room for definite improvement. I have the patience to do a variety of styles that take quite a bit of time as long as I schedule myself to do it.
I will be moisturizing and sealing often but when putting these in, I did moisturize my hair and the marley hair with my Beemine Curly Hold Butter. I will have to order more because I definitely am scraping the bottom of the container.
Prepoo-100% Pure Coconut Oil & Black Castor Oil
Shampoo- ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo ( I like this, New for me didn't strip or dry)
Deep Condition - Aubrey Honey Suckle Rose & Black Castor Oil
Leave In - Hairveda Whipped Creme Ends Hydration
Styler - Beemine Curly Hold Butter
Jane Carter - Wrap Lotion ( To Lay down any fly aways on twists)
One N Only - Argan Oil Treatment ( to discourage frizz/ Will use Natural Argan oil going forward)
Well hope you like them and Let me know what you think.
