Saturday night I blow dried my hair, fully intending to flat-iron it. By the time my hair was dry my arms were tired, my biceps burned and I was fresh out of patience. I ended up flat ironing one row before calling it quits.
I wore my hair in a high fluffy blown out bun on Sunday but I wasn’t feeling the bun at all (didn’t even take a pic for y’all) so I set my hair on perm rods Sunday night.
Working row by row, I started off by lightly misting my hair with water. Next I applied half a dime size of Entwine Naturalle Couture Exotique Leave-In Hair Potion and then Entwine’s Creme Jelle Styler for a bit of hold (per row). I used the bigger blue perm rods in the back (12) and the smaller tan rods in the front (14). Oh, and before rolling my hair on the perm rods, I started a two strand twist to make it easier to separate the curls without causing frizz.
I’d yet to have success with perm rods so I sent up a hopeful prayer before bed and let my hair dry overnight. In the morning I unraveled the curls.
After beaucoup separating of the curls and shaking my head around:
Next time I’ll have to (1) dampen my hair a bit more and (2) roll the hair at top of my head tighter/smaller sections for more volume and more shape to my hair or (3) just use smaller rods in the back.
