Hair update

Well, the bottom of my hair is ALL natural! It’s been 8 months since I started the transitioning process. Here’s a pic – this was after a wash and go, my hair is kind of dry because I used mousse and then bunned it after work, but you can still see the curls coming in strong!

I still plan on keeping my hair around this length (maybe a bit longer – collar bone) until all of it is natural 🙂

Hair Update: October

Hair is growing, growing, growing. Even with a trim, it’s almost to my shoulder when straightened (at the front – it’s cut asymmetrically). Loving my new darkened color.

Today, I did a dry braided Bantu knot out. I call it dry because I didn’t start it with freshly washed hair. In fact…it was a dried out certified rats nest of curls.

What I did:
Step 1) put a little bit of product in hair, mine was 3 day old hair so I put a teeny tiny bit on, concentrating on my (dry ass frizzy) ends. Step 2) lightly finger detangle, dry braid then knot into sections (I did about 15) Step 3) lightly spray the knots with water to activate old product in hair Step 4) blow dry on low with low heat Step 5) take out knotted braids, fluff and style

The whole process took less then an hour because it was a mostly “dry” process. Didn’t need to wait over night for soaking wet knots to dry.

Results: a wavy head of hair that is 10 times more manageable then a rats nest for the day, until I decide to wash and wet knot for more defined curls 🙂

I’m not sure why my water bottle looks anorexic. I can’t get it to get normal again haha. All well, still works!
