Curly Hair and Don't Care

           I decided to try a new hairstyle which always strikes fear into my husbands heart! lol He never knows exactly where my head is for the week ie: afro, straight weave, blow out, curly weave or braids. The list could go on and on. He says it's like waking up to a different women everyday. *raises eyebrow* lol

  I decided to try out a Bantu twist out. (Pictured left) I chose to double strand twist each section before twisting into knots but I think I made the sections too small because I was concerned about frizz control. As it turns out the smaller knots made for more smaller curls that lasted until I realized.....I don't like small curls or frizz. lol

       I fixed my dislikes by curling each section with a small 13mm barrel round Enzo wand. I was careful not to include my ends because I'm always conscious of and trying to avoid split ends.

This was the result after using the iron. I loved the volume the bantu twist out created but not the frizz. This gave me more of a controlled curl and lots of shine!

Products used: Mixed chicks leave in conditioner  and Dudley's Setting lotion.

What hair styles have you tried lately? Did you like it?


  1. Nicole, this is by far my favorite hairstyle!! I want it NOW. I love the curls! I can't wait to try this style. Thanks for the post!!

  2. PRETTY!! Now, I must ask: what was your dryer time w/ the knots? lol

  3. Is your hair natural?

  4. Love it Nicole. I've recently tried the "rod" look. Love it too. So easily manageable and u dont have to use heat to your head which is great & so much more healthy for u.

  5. @Santara yes gurl, it did take a while about 4 hours but I did let them air dry. @anonymous My hair is natural.

  6. Love it! Can't wait for my hair to be natural
