Thank you everybody! I'm going to try to post a many pictures as possible because I I plan to do a few more styles!!!
What is your daily routine for keeping the hair tame
It depends on how I'm wearing my hair. When I did the wash and go, I did the pineapple method. But I would use two high ponytails and not one. When it's a twistout, I either slept in a bun or retwisted at night. In the mornings, it's a fluff and go.
so would you say the 24in shrinks to 12in?
I wouldn't say that. I'm 5'3. I wanted hair that would hit me between APL and BSL. I ordered a 20in from a CV last year and the 20 in hit me between SL and APL. So I figured 24 inches would give me what I needed. I don't know the inches in straight hair land, but the hair hangs a little below my bra when complete wet. At it's most severe shrinkage, it hits me at the beginning of APL. On a good hand day, it's BSL. On average, it hangs between APL and BSL. I don't have a lot of backshot because I don't have my camera handy.
