|Bantu Knots on Flat Ironed Hair: Slight Wave|
To my surprise, Lil miss Dimples kept up her flat ironed hair! Day 1, I tried to do a wrap with the satin scarf, and of course she sleeps so wild that the wrap came off. That wasn't the bad part. The bad part was when she came into our room at 3am in the morning asking if one of us could fix it!! Her Dad said he didn't know how to fix it (big shock), and so he woke me up and asked me to fix "the thing".
Day 2 and 3 I opted to put some Bantu knots and pin it down then scarf it down (y'all could tell that I didn't want any more early morning disturbances). That worked out well, but I think I used the wrong product that night for hold. I used the Jane Carter Nourish and Shine (which is great for shine and moisture of sorts), but I needed like a lotion for all day hold of the Bantu knot curls. You can see them on the right side of her head LOL!
I put some of the tea tree on her scalp too (I did a patch test first). She typically has itchy scalp too by day 5, and this time--she has not been scratching her scalp. This is great news all the way around! Longer style time with two strand twists, flat ironed hair, the sky's the limit!
