Q: How did you wear your hair for bed to preserve the curls?
The method to the right is how I preserved my curls for day 2 in the second picture. To preserve my flexi rod curls, I tied my hair up before bed by bending over and tying a silk scarf around the sides of my head, leaving the curls out at the top. This is not shown in the picture, but I after tying my hair up with the scarf, I covered everything with a bonnet. My curls have dropped a bit in the picture to the right after moisturizing and sealing at the end of day 2.
|End of day 2 hair, after moisturizing & sealing|
I used Darcy’s Botanicals Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme and sealed with grapeseed oil. My curls dropped a bit from the manipulation and smoothing the product down my hair but didn’t fall flat. I was hesitant to moisturize and seal but I just couldn’t go two days without moisturizing my hair. My curls looked nice but they weren’t worth the dry feeling that was slowly creeping into my strands.
|Second day hair|
I pinned the curls up and away from my neck in a high ponytail to avoid getting them damp with sweat but my roots puffed up from sweat (of course).
No tangling (yet?) and to prevent any tangles during my next wash day, I plan to pre-poo with coconut oil to help loosen any tangles when I finger comb before shampooing.
