@Ritle, I feel like my straightened natural hair will not last ( about two days) so I feel like theres no point in straightening it. Also i love liquid/creamy moisturizers on my hair and I cant put it on when its flat ironed. Natural hair problems . The back of my hair has a 4c texture to it and it is a pain to handle. I really do not like natural hair styles right now so I thinking about texlaxing so I can straighten it easier. Thanks for replying to me.
You're welcome, I co-sign with what Luv said.
Also, wrapping your hair at night after straightening and putting a satin scarf on it or a good thick hair net.
That will preserve the wrap overnight so that when you unwrap it it's still as smooth (or even smoother) and will make the style last longer without having to apply extra heat.

@Lady- Thanks, Hun, but why I gotta be a biga$$? LOL! J/k.
@faded jeans- what's ur straightening technique and products that u use? It maybe a technique issue or product issue that 's impeding u from having a longer press. How long is ya girl? It could be a length issue that makes ya buns look less full. Do u have fine strands? That could also play a role in ya buns too. But, if u are thinking more of textlaxing- there's a lot of info on the board.
@Ritle- Awww, I'm glad u avoided a drenchful situation. At least he apologized. .. at least
I hope the weather holds up so u can keep on pressing on!
Have fun with ya colleagues!
Well, the plaitout was a 1 day do bc of the rain. I'm rockin a stacked puff. Me and Hubby had movie date night yesterday. Usually I take my hair down when we go to the movies. But, I wasn't in the caring mood for other patrons. We found seats all the way at the top, so we were good.
Yea I'm glad he apologized and that the bucket wasn't full and he gets a pass for being slightly mentally challenged(he's 15 but is younger in some aspects), so it's good that he at least understood that he shouldn't have done it, would've been great if he had realized before, but baby steps.
Girl, I put my hair in two braids overnight and though it was more poofy because it was wet before, it was looking alright to wear down, so I didn't even bother adding styling products or washing it as yet to fully revert it and wore it out.
But then rain came and humidity and half of my hair turned into a curly fro so I ended up putting it in a side ponytail to look presentable for dinner time(rain had stopped but it was humid out on the terras) as I had a bananaclip in my bag just in case and hair elastics in case the banaclip broke LOL(have to be prepared for anything hahaha)
The outing was fun, thanks
, though the boat trip was cancelled because of the rain the trip to the former courthouse turned into museum was fun, especially the architecture and interior and the guide was excellent.
We ended the outing with a visit to a pavilion restaurant near the water where we could choose from any cold drink to start off(or warm for whomever decided), followed by the most exquisite Italian buffet topped off with a fresh mango icecream(you could taste that it was most likely custom made) on a slender cone(which was delicious and could've been custom made but doesn't have to be.) and we ended the evening with a warm beverage, which in my case was a cappuccino with a perfectly dense layer of foamed milk.
This is what my hair looked like on Tuesday:
Interesting thing to note, when I initially put it in two braids to create a wavy style I HAD to secure them with hair elastics or they'd unravel, but once it had gotten wet the day after lol...I didn't need to secure them that's how I knew that though the oil helped for it not to poof with the quickness, that it had reverted a bit.
And though it did unravel a bit once I re-braided them, I knew the time was coming to say hello to my curls again.
I don't have any pic from that day though, nor do I have a before pic from the day of the company outing, but just imagine a thick head of waves.
This is what my hair looked like once I got home from the company outing, picture is blurry but at least you get an idea of how much it poofed:
I wore it in a side pony on Friday as well. Did not wash it as yet, I'm enjoying the poof while it lasts, by the way the puff feels so soft, never has felt like this before, trying to find the words to describe it to fellow hair-touch-ists, but to make a potentially long story short, grape seed oil is a winner for me, my hair loves it.
And lol@you(Luv) having up your hair without a care(mood) for others at the cinema, awe well, at least you found a good seat in the back
Sorry your style didn't last because of rain.
The weather doesn't know what it wants here, so I guess I'm going to just wash my hair and rock the curls again....after I'm done having my hands in my hair
, I'm loving the puff.
