Hello Again!! In the midst of this election season, I’ll still make time for other important things….our hair! Duh! lol :o)
Any who, it’s Tuesday again and I wanted to share another quick tip!
Do you ever wake up and your twists are still damp from the night before and you end up with a ton of frizz?
Well, GENTLY unravel the twists right when you wake up or before you get ready in the morning (don’t separate/fluff yet!).
This allows air to get into the damp under/inner sections of your hair that were concealed during the night. By the time you shower, do your make-up, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, etc. etc. your hair should be dryer if not completely dry! For me, this about 30 mins or so.
Hair Still too damp? Gently run a blow-dry over your hair for a minute or so. Move the blow dryer quickly so you don’t disturb the curls. Now you can separate the sections, fluff up that fro and go…frizz free!
Hey curlies! I wanted to start a new weekly series. I’ll be honest, sometimes, I just don’t have anything new and exciting to share about my hair lol it’s still here though so no worries :o)
So I figured each Tuesday I can share a quick hair tip! Just little things that come to mind when I am doing my hair and I feel like I should share!
So here goes tip #1
For a longer (stretched), more defined twist-out….
Start with freshly washed, detangled hair that is wet. Pull your hair back into a bun or in big loose twists (no need to apply product yet). Let it completely dry. This basically s t r e t c h e s your hair without using any heat and acts as your starting point for your style.
When you’re ready to twist it up to style, lightly re-spritz with water (to moisturize) and apply your styling product for hold and to seal in the water. This will give you body, definition and length! Pretty curls!
…Don’t worry, I will be adding a page that lists popular “natural jargon” lol (i.e. EVOO = Extra Virgin Olive Oil) lol I still think it is funny how hard core the “natural hair community” is, has it’s own frickin language. We truly love our hair lol
Stay tuned for a Natural Girl dictionary so you can “talk that talk” too ;0)
