The curly fro

I like to consider myself as a lazy natural so when it comes to styling my hair I look for a style that I can easily maintain through out the entire week, something that won’t be too time consuming in the mornings and evenings when I go to bed. The one thing about being a natural head is that we have to invest a lot of time into our hair and sometimes I am just too tired or plain lazy to be bothered by it. So whenever I can do something that won’t take up too much time it’s a major plus for me.IMG_1662 (1)

I had been wearing a wig and I wanted to let my hair breath so I brought out my perm rods and I kept a curly afro for the week, I really enjoyed this hair style it was very easy to maintain and my hair was well moisturised. I received plenty of compliments too, it has definitely become a firm favourite of mine. I had always been under the impression that keeping an afro would be high maintenance and lead to tangled hair. I usually keep my hair stretched with no heat of course but I am learning to embrace my shrinkage and Im looking forward to trying more curly styles 🙂

This is how I achieved my curly fro and maintained it throughout the week.

I started on freshly washed and conditioned hair and began to two strand twist my hair, I then used perm rods on the ends so I could get nicely curled ends. I covered my hair with a silk scarf and went to bed. It was my first time using the Camille Rose Almond Jai Butter and I must say it turned out pretty good. My hair felt very moisturised when I took the twists down the next morning. IMG_1587 (1)

After unraveling the twists I used a afro pick comb to fluff out my hair and voila!

Happy with my fro

I added a small amount of Shea butter before putting my hair in large twists every night and making a bantu knot with each twist. In the mornings I would simply untwist and fluff my hair out.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I’m excited about documenting my hair journey and sharing my experiences with you.

Cheers for now.
