As usual, there was a small change of plans...
So i was about to get ready to do my cornrows for the braid out when i noticed that my color was looking kind of washed out so i decided to color my hair. I really wanted to try the braid out on my blowdried hair but i figure i'll just do it on my wet hair and re-braid or flat twist the following night (all for the love of color!)
After washing, i detangled and separated section by section (without parting, except for the front part) and did my 8 braids using Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste. For one, I love this stuff!!! Wet or dry, i've been using it for the past 2 or 3 days and i love it! When it says it holds down edges, i mean man, does it hold down those edges!!! And smells soooo good, like i just wanna lick my fingers or something, lol. Okay, no need to review this later. It provides great shine and hold with out any crunchy, greasy or sticky residue. When detangling and applying the product, my curls were loving it too so i can't wait to try this for a wash and go as it seems it may have a lot of products beat in my book... can we say "Please make this stuff in bigger jars please?!" I also want to try doing a roller set using this gel since it holds great but dries soft. Seems like it would be the perfect product for rollersetting and curlforming (when my hair is long enough to do so).
On to the Results!
Because i did the braid out on wet hair instead of blown out hair, it is kind of shrunken and doesn't have the bob look as much... i think tonight if i have the time i may try doing flat twist on it to see if it'll stretch out a little more.
