"Just a couple of pics that I took of my hair when I got home today."
I moisturised the synthetic hair with some SCurl, Bee Mine Bee Hold and used a little Creme of Nature Argan Oil Polish and Shine which worked a treat at defining the curls, softening the hair and eliminating some of the frizz. It also tamed the hair really nicely without weighing it down or making it sticky/greasy.
|These are the tools I used to install the braids ~ scissors, braid hair x 2 packs, latch hook tool|
|This picture is where the ends of my cornrows are held in a pony tail holder.|
|Top view of my centre parting with the closure stopping the part from going all the way down the back of my head. I now have about 3 or 4 closures so I have more parting options.|
|Front view of the knots. I love the way they blend into my hairline and you can see clearly from this picture that there is no tension from the braids, although they are tight enough (for now)!|
|Front view: on the 1st day (blue shirt) 3rd day (black dress). Some of the bulk has been removed and it now has some shape to it. If it looks too flat when it starts to drop a bit I will just crohet in some more hair.|
|It's still big hair...|
|It's still in yer face....|
|... but a little tamed 'for every day use'....|
|....very different to my normal 'look'|
