I love my buns. That's all that I do with my hair. With my hair being shorter now and the shrinkage being out of control, it makes putting my hair in a bun a difficult. I have been trying my hand at flat twists and regular two-strand twists. They have been the bane of my existence. lol Enough of the dramatics. But they have been difficult to master. I believe I have figured out what my obstacle has been. Doing twists on wet hair doesn't work for me. The back of my hair was always super frizzy and undefined. I am 3 months heat free and want to keep it that way for a bit. I will make an exception for using the tension method. Doing that has changed my life. lol This is the first time that I have been confident enough to wear a curly style and not put it directly into a bun.
Earlier this week, I dampened my hair and then used the tension method to stretch it and did two strand twists. My hair turned out pretty good. I wanted a bit more definition. So I used the following products to reset my hair and give flat twists a try (pictured above). The twist are by no means perfect but they are a work in progress.
I'm happy that I have found a way to cure my hair styling woes. I should have done this a long time ago. Would have saved me some headaches.
