So while in Atlanta I had the wonderful idea to blow my hair out because I wanted to rock some BIG HAIR for a day. Luckily for me my awesome curlfriends were here for me. Landa of CurlyAndLovely provided the products and the tools. Jalisa of No Fro Smushing Allowed lent a hand and actually did my blow-out. We started this project well after midnight because last minute hairstyles are just how I roll.
First up I washed my hair with Eden BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi shampoo and detangled my hair with deep conditioner from the same line. I really like these products they worked fantastic, check out my review here.
I plaited my hair into 6-8 sections while detangling. I allowed my hair to partially air dry in each plait while laughing and listening to music. Next, we took down each plait one at a time. I applied 1-2 pumps of Clio Therma-Shield Hair Serum which protects up to 480 degrees. Yes, sir I am not trying to fry my hair. Then Ja lovingly blowdried on low heat at medium speed.
Then I braided my hair back up into 12- 15 braids using a fingertip full of Donna Marie Super Buttercreme on each section. My hair was so darn soft I just kept petting myself. I threw a silk scarf on my head then went to sleep finally.
In the morning, I took down each braid and fluffed and shook and fluffed and shook and my hair began to grow. I used a pick to help it along to make sure my hair got the volume
I desired. The results were big, fluffy, soft hair that definitely turned heads.
My hair continued to get bigger throughout the day which was alright with me. I have learned to love my big hair even though I have a big head. At the end of the day I twisted my hair up into two-strand twists for the plane ride home, I did not want to cause a security alert at the airport. I will definitely rock my big hair again soon.
