I rocked a fro-hawk during finals week of my grad program, and so many of my peers were in awe of how I could wear my hair this way. Oh the beauty of our gravity defying tresses. :-D This style was achieved on a braid-out (the first time) and then on a bantu-knot out (the second time). With the first one I made 6-8 large plaits after washing my hair, and allowed them to air dry. I've found that when I do this then my hair stretches even more making it easier to pull the sides up and bobby pin them into place.
Twists on stretched hair before shrinkage:
New Regimen: Here is my new regimen. After I wash and condition my hair i'll spritz aloe vera juice all over, and then seal in the moisture with my oil mixture using:
1 oz. Vitamin E
1 oz. Castor Oiil
1 oz. Avocado Oil
1 oz. Sweet Almond Oil
My hair will dry quickly once these oils have been absorbed. My hair feels slightly moisturized, and even more so when I spritz it with water. I'm so glad that it doesn't feel as dry either.
