LOL! So, as I told you guys yesterday, I set my hair in 9 twists on Tuesday night using a little Wonder Curl Get Set Hair Jelly after I sealed my hair with an EVOO/JBCO mix. That wouldn’t be my typical order of products, but I decided to do the twists after I had already sealed my hair and thought I would try the Jelly to see if it would give me a nice, firm set.
I’ve had a sample size of the WC Get Set Jelly for a while now. But, I’d only used the tiniest amount on my roots for a TnC set. So, I didn’t have a real feeling for it. However, I really liked the consistency for setting my twists. It’s not a wet gel, it’s more firm and … well … jelly-like in consistency. That’s a good indicator for me that it will provide a firm hold that will resist humidity. Eco Styler gel has a similar consistency, but the Get Set Jelly is definitely firmer. My hair had a nice sheen in the twists too … don’t know if that was the kimmaytube leave-in, the oil or the Jelly, but it was all good.
Wednesday morning, I released and fluffed the twists and wore my hair out for the day. This is what it looked like when I got home after work.
As you can see from the first pic, the back looked a lot better than it did after my WnG (see my post from yesterday)! The curl pattern has been evened out and the perimeter appears fuller due to the twist-out. As to the WC Get Set Jelly, I’m definitely going to be experimenting with it a little more! But, for now, the hair has gone into a bun where it will remain for the rest of the week!
On another note, figured I’d show you how I winterized another summer piece a la my post, Wear it in Summer, Wear it in Winter. This time, I layered a thin black tee-shirt turtleneck over a black eyelet skirt and paired it with a suede swing jacket, a wide suede belt, black fishnet stockings and black suede, slouchy knee boots.
Everything in my outfit is a few years old, but here’s a run down in case you are interested! The skirt is from The Loft and part of a matching set (top and skirt). I got it on clearance a few summers ago. The turtleneck is from Kohl’s and was probably less than $10. The suede swing jacket is from Marshall’s and I found it on the clearance rack for $15 (someone at work liked it so much, I picked one up for her too!). The belt is a hand-me-down from an old suit my aunt was giving me. I didn’t want the suit, but I snagged up the awesome belt! The boots are Michael Kors that I picked up from Marshall’s for $69, I think. I bought them for $99, then saw them at another Marshall’s for $69 in the wrong size … did a little switcheroo and got the right size for the lesser price. Score! I LOVE these boots! They are soooo comfortable and can be worn high or low. I wear the heck out of them during fall and winter!
