I hadn't talked much about my hair because I hadn't been doing anything with it except hiding it under Creta. After wearing her for two and a half weeks I started to miss my own hair so on my next wash day, I washed and blow dried my hair. After trimming my ends, I put it in flat twists using Donna Marie Super Butter Cream mixed with a 1/2 tsp of Aloe Vera juice.
This is my first twist out since the end of the protective style challenge and boy did I get great results. And although I got caught in the rain with no umbrella on the second day, I was still happy with how it looked afterwards.
Flat twists and bantu knots are the go-to style for my natural hair because they offer great methods of stretching without having to use heat.
For myself, I find that random and crooked parts are best for take down because for some odd reason, my parts don't like to go away. if I make them straight. Crooked parts are easier to hide without having to fluff the hair too much which often results in more frizz than I care for.
Here's a quick pic I snapped of my hair on the first day while I was at work. Sorry for the low quality. I was trying to work fast because I hate for people to catch me taking pics of myself. It's so awkward.
And yes, I'm still rocking the blue-black hair but my other hair color is starting to show through. Notice the hints of auburn in the front section. :-)
