|DAY 5 BRAIDOUT RESULTS WITH HEMPSEED OIL|
RESULT: Defined Coils with Shine and Slight Hold. STYLING: Simple High Ponytail to Highlight her Coils that were poppin!
Day 3: Wednesday Night Was a Braidout on top of the Coils. Shea Butter mix was used. I only did 4 Plaits. NO DETANGLING! RESULT: Soft, Wavy, Defined Braidout
My prediction was correct. The hair didn't accept the water moisturizing as well. Most likely due to the coating of Shea Butter mix from the night before. How I know it didn't get the full benefit that water has to offer our hair is because the hair felt dry and hay like. It got great definition, though.
With this in mind, not everyone's hair will react to the Shea Butter (or Butters) like this, but it's something to watch for. Does your hair feel soft and moisturized a night or two after placing the butters on the shaft for a braidout or twistout?
I previously did an experiment using Shea Butter and reviewing the way water plays with it, and it showed that it will allow the water, but it definitely gave a slight barrier. Not an unstoppable barrier, but still it slowed down water absorption.
|Fine, Natural Hair can Expand to Appear Thick With the Right Technique|
Don't let fine hair fool you! It can be coaxed to (shall we say) Open up. Here, I used a stretching technique that involved fluffing with my fingers to encourage her hair to separate in a puffy way. I will get more technical about this technique in an alternate post. Meanwhile, Miss Dimples rocked her big fro, while constantly getting stopped by people who asked if she modelled!
Love the Coils You're In.........
