Okay, so yesterday I wasn’t all that keen on the new hair style where I sectioned my hair and put gel in to define the curls. Some curls popped, some was just fluff with a little curl, whatever, but I just thought it looked like a bad afro wig, lol.
Not a happy camper, but I figured it was trying something new and I won’t like all results but I’ll wear it a couple of days because I might as well. HOO-BOY, that was NOT going to work. I’d slept in my satin bonnet as usual, woke up and WOOF! Took the cap off and holy crap batman! Ever get those ignorant people asking “is your hair rough? natural kinky hair looks rough, is it like a brillo pad?” MOST days I would laugh in the face of that blatant idiocy and say no, my hair feels like soft pretty cotton THANK YOU VERY MUCH, but today? I would have had to sadly put my head down and say yes, yes my hair is just like the texture of a rough wiry piece of dish washing equipment. :weeping:
Hair was shrunken, hard, wiry, and just overall a complete change from the soft, lush, pretty, want to bury my face in it hair that I’m used to. So um….yeah….definitely got in the shower asap to wash that crap out with my lovely pure life aloe shampoo (wooo, that stuff is great) and sat with honeysuckle rose again for about 5 mins. Detangled my now soft again pretty hair and rinsed out. I decided to do my own rollerset for the first time, used small blue rollers with tiny itty bitty combs on them and my amla/olive heavy cream. Sprayed with my homemade aloe juice concoction after all done and voila!
I started at the back and made my way to the front where I got lazy and didn’t make sure that the sections were uniform or wet, so it’ll probably look like a crap spirally bush in the front, but at least i can walk backwards and look fly to death! lmao 😀
so, to wrap this up, experimentation is good but know all RESULTS won’t be good and now I know that i don’t have easily defined spirally curls everywhere on my head. Beware overloading on the gel and thank god for just today not having a job because I would have been MORTIFIED if I’d awaken to that head of hair and couldn’t do a damn thing to change it!
