Tresses Thursday 12/29/16

Hello all, and welcome to another Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips.šŸ˜€Ā  My goal every week is to try a different hairstyle andĀ let me say this did not turn out how I had originally planned or thought it would.Ā lol

I started the usual way, washing my hair usingĀ  Andalou hair productsĀ andĀ putĀ Giovanni Direct Leave-In ConditionerĀ in, thenĀ used a thick-toothed comb to distribute it thoroughly through my hair.Ā Secondly, I section the front of my hair in a triangle, and twisted the front along my head from right to left. I twisted the rest of the hair in to a coil and pin the curl. Next IĀ make a part all the way across my head, from the top of one ear to the other, then part that hair down the middle.Ā As you can see in the video, it isn’t straight. Ā lolĀ My part inspector, milamoki, was taking a nap, so I did the best I could do with using a hand-held mirror to see the back of my head. Next, twisted each section of hair in to bantu knots. With the hair that’s left, I french braid it along the back of my head.

Once all that is finished, I wrap my hair in a scarf to protect the style as well as the hair from breaking off as I sleep. The next day, I take off the scarf, undo the pin curl, the bantu knots, and the french braid. I run my fingers through parts of it to help the curls spread out.
