Hello, lovelies! As I shared with you all a couple of months ago (on YouTube), I got a drastic haircut. Many call it the Big Chop but I just consider it a regular old hair cut. I was natural before the cut so I wasn’t embarking on anything drastically new except this new fire cut!😎
I’ve had short hair before so I didn’t think much about keeping it up. However, I have been asked more than once how I maintain my shorter hair. In this video I discuss why I decided to cut my hair, my maintenance regimen and the costs of maintaining a shorter do!
I enjoy interacting with you all! Any questions and positive suggestions are welcomed! Thanks for checking me out!
Hello, Lovelies! I wanted to share my most recent perm rod set with you all! I’m getting a little better each time with this video editing stuff so I hope you all enjoy! I am starting to enjoy doing this so there will be many more videos to come! Subscribe to my channel on YouTube!
Thanks for stopping by!
Greetings! Many of you who know me know that I am a simple, afro-wearing girl. I love to do other people’s hair but do not always have the patience for my own. I decided that this year I would try a lot more things with my hair and I am excited to share those things with you! The style I am wearing this week is a fauxhawk set with perm rods!! I always veered away from rods setting my hair because I felt like it would be too time consuming and I despise sitting under the dryer!!!
I started with freshly deep conditioned and trimmed hair! I t-shirt blotted my hair, applied some leave-in and braided 3 cornrows on one side and 2 on the other. I wanted more slant on one side. 😉
I mixed a few pumps of Nairobi foam wrap with water to dampen my hair if it got too dry during the wrapping process. I used a small dab of Eco Styler to smooth the frizzy areas and fly aways during wrapping as well.
I rolled the first section of hair in my bang area with the smaller white rods for a tighter curl in the front and began with the purple then peach ones.
Wrapping didn’t take as long as I anticipated. I didn’t have to be anywhere until lunchtime so I happily let them dry overnight. The fact that I did not wrap them soaking wet aided in the quicker drying process.
I initially fell asleep on the sofa without wrapping my hair, but before I got in bed I wrapped it up. I just knew my hair was going to be super frizzy but it was fine. It even inspired my little “freestyle” on the way to work. The next morning, I checked a few rods and they were completely dry. I sat under the hair dryer set at low for 15 minutes to help set the curl in. I let it cool for another 15 minutes and then began to take them down.
Here are the final results! I will be doing this more often! It’s quick and will last me until my next cleansing and is low maintenance! I am all for that!
