Loose Curls

I was in a fabulous wedding this past weekend in a castle!

I was playing around with styles the week prior to the wedding to see what would work. The bride suggested loose curls, half up/half down or one side pinned up.

I straightened my hair last weekend as practice and I noticed that as time went by, instead of my hair frizzing, it just reverted to the curls from the roller set. That worked!

For the wedding, I started with freshly washed hair. I roller set it and then straightened it a bit more with the curling iron. I was sure to use a lot of heat protectant/straightening serum to ensure that it wouldn’t frizz. The effect of that was looser curls. I applied some WonderCurl Butter Than Love Hair Pudding and did 4 Bantu knots. Two in the front and two in the back. That has proven to be a great moisturizer for my hair. In the morning, I took the Bantu knots down and pinned up one side.

My hair didn’t frizz the whole night. My curls dropped a bit, but I definitely got the desired “loose curl” look.

This was my wedding hair…

I’ve realized over the past week of having straight hair that wrapping my hair at night isn’t best because my ends are still exposed and they dry out. This week, I’ll be bunning or Bantu knotting my hair at night to protect the ends.

Last night I did one tight bun and this is my ponytail today. Love it! I can’t wait until it’s longer.
