Growing yet?

I’ve been rocking this same old tired bun all week. I miss my twistout!

The plan is to co-wash my hair this evening and do a twistout so it can be nice and stretched by the weekend.

I was thinking of doing a length check to compare to my first one two months ago. I don’t want to be disappointed again though. Lol.

In addition, I bought all of the supplies to do my length check t-shirt, but never got around to it. Tsk! I think I’m not stressing it because I know I can’t reach my hair in the back to measure it anyway. *sigh* Short hair is soooooo not my thing!

XOXO,

Roller Set Results…

Roller setting my natural hair for the first time was a process. First I had to buy smaller rollers. I’m used to using the big gray rollers because my hair was always long. I didn’t know what size to buy, so I bought two sizes. I figured I could use the smaller size on the shorter parts of my hair. It didn’t take me long to set my hair. All in all, it wasn’t a horrible experience. Here are the results…

I’ve got some nice curls going. The back didn’t seem to straighten as much as the rest, although it was completely dry.

The plan was to smooth it down and wrap it to get it to smooth out even more, but I noticed that the more I combed it, the bigger it was getting. A friend said on Twitter that “natural hair can’t be tamed.” Now that’s the truth!

Soooo… would I roller set my hair again? Not anytime soon. I didn’t roller set my hair for me to have any extravagant style. I wanted to see if the texture of my hair was softer after I roller set it. It was, but it wasn’t worth all of the trouble just for me to have my same old bun. Besides, I miss my twistout already.

XOXO,
