Yup, I’m at it again. And, this is just one of two styles I rocked this week using a banana clip. But, ya’ll are going to have to wait for the other one ;). So, I filmed a video for this, but I need to lay an audio track over it explaining what I was doing and I’m not sure when I’ll get around to that as I have some other things in the works, including a white water rafting trip this weekend and … of course … our Natural Hair Meet-Up!!
Okay, now to this look. I did a henna treatment on Sunday and DC’d overnight. So, Monday morning, I had to quickly do something with my hair! “WnG my old friend! How have you been?!?!”I didn’t make any Kimmaytube leave-in on Sunday and didn’t have the time to make it on Monday morning either. So, I did something that I knew would cause problems. I used DevaCare One as my leave-in and applied JessiCurl Confident Coils Curling Lotion as my styler. Ummmm … if you saw my first two-part video review of this product line, you know this combo resulted in flakes. It wasn’t any different this time. But if you ignored the little product flakes, my hair looked pretty dang good, if I do say so myself! LOL! You know, I never seem to have time to allow my hair to dry for a TnC anymore and the WnG is starting to look more and more attractive as my day one style! Now that henna has loosened the hair at my crown, WnGs don’t seem to give me a mullet anymore!!
Well, on Tuesday, I did this updo by smoothing my hair back into a ponytail with my hands and putting the banana clip around it in the “traditional” vertical position. Then, I just began by grabbing a medium-sized section, loosely rolling it around my fingers and pin-curling it against my head with bobby pins. I repeated until all my hair was pin-curled in a bun-like formation (I used a crap load of bobby pins) and then threw on the headband. This was another very easy hairstyle that I was able to do in less than 10 minutes. I know some are probably wondering why I use a banana clip instead of a hair elastic of scrunchie. Truly and honestly, the banana clip does NOT snag my hair or pull it out when I remove it and it is soooo much easier and faster for me to put around my hair! Anywho, here is the finished look with two different accessories, a headband and an orchid (I wore it with the headband to work). Oh, and I’m also including pics of my WnG. I think the amla really may have done something! I’ll definitely be repeating the process I did a couple of weeks ago and posted about here to see if this is a fluke or if the amla is really doing something to restore my natural curl.
