So I have been relaxed for one week now and thought I would share with you the styles that I have tried with my now manageable hair. I love when it is relaxed after a stretch. There is such a difference and the styling options are everlasting! I went out to a family do on sat and thought I would do something different with my hair. I attempted to do the Banana Clip Pin Curl, as done by Sunshyne of Hairlista and Hairlicious Inc. I followed these steps as well as I could but it didn't turn out as good as I had hoped. I think the problem was that started out with flat ironed hair and not air dried. Anyhow, this is how it looked at the start
Then I noticed that it had dropped so I tried to fix it when I got to my mum's house, but think I should have left it alone. This is how it looked after I 'fixed' it... Sorry, but the lighting in my mum's bathroom isn't so great, and I am still using my phone to take pictures.
Wednesday I put my hair into four plaits and kept that in until Friday when I took it out for a braidout:
I'm gonna try not to use any heat until my next relaxer day - I really think this contributes to my length retention.
After a few days, the braidout was well and truly on it's last legs, so I just put my hair in a bun.
What works best for you?
