Hair styles for wearing your hair while straightened

Hi everyone,

As you know, I recently had my hair flat ironed and I have been wearing it straight for two weeks. I am getting bored with it because it is just flat and there. So I have been trying to give it a little splashSmile

Here is a simple ponytail. But i added a cute headband because I was bored with just the ponytail.

Since my ends have been out for two weeks, I tried to get them off of my shoulders and clothes because I don’t want to lose the length that I retained. So I flat twisted one side and the back and then let the other side hang down.

I am bored with my hair and do not want to damage my ends so I will wash it this weekend and flat twist it up. Stay tuned …….

Length Check

Hey everyone.

I have not trimmed my ends or straightened my hair as far as a press or flat iron in 2 1/2 years and I have been wearing my hair in its natural state and protective braids and kinky twist styles. I have only been co-washing my scalp every week unless I have removed a protective style that has been in for weeks and I will shampoo my scalp to cleanse it. I have been pre-pooing once a month with the 4cnaturalhair pre-poo and then flat twisting or two strand twisting using the 4cnaturalhair twist & define butter and it has really paid off. I have retained much length and my hair is very healthy. I went ahead and had it straightened to see how long it has gotten, and I must say, it has grown!

Here is what it looked like before the curling

Done

I pin curled the front bangs and wrapped my hair, covered with a net then a satin bonnet and went to sleep. This is how it came out the next day at work.

Here are my top 5 tips for retaining length:

1. Always focus on your ends because they are the oldest and most fragile part of the hair

2. Co wash your scalp once per week and apply a thick leave in conditioner after washing and seal the moisture in with an oil or butter.

3. Do not trim your ends unless they are damaged.

4. Keep your ends protected in protective styles as much as possible and only bring your ends out on special occasions or when necessary.

5. Do not use store bought products, make your own from natural and pure ingredients.

Kinky twists style

Hi everyone,

You know that I love kinky twists and I had some put in two months ago. I love the way that they start to look more and more natural the longer that you have them. I just throw mine to the side and it is a great style that is easy and can be worn anywhere.

Sexy

Very simple and sexy.

First day of school hair

Hi everyone,

For my daughter’s first day of school, we decided to do a mohawk. So we pre poo’d, washed and conditioned then blow dried her hair. She had to get her hair flat I ironed for the part that would be the “hawk”

this is the finished product

At night we would pin curl the hair with bobby pins and then tie it up

After one week of letting her ends hang out flat ironed, I went ahead and put some conditioner into a water bottle with some water, sprayed the back of her hair and two strand twisted her hair to create a different style

Protective style – Individuals

Hi everyone,

Saturday I had some individuals put in using the black “n” gold synthetic hair and they are looking bomb, I must say. Lol

7 hours, 7 hours. That is all that I can say. I will wash my scalp with conditioner only every week and I will do a tutorial for you when I do the first wash and post it.

This one is kind of a crazy picture, but I wanted you to see the back.

I love this style and i will do so many styles with these braids in, my ends are protected and I can co-wash as often as possible. Hope that you like.

Hair of the day – Just pinned to the side

Good morning out there in 4c land! How is everyone doing?

Yesterday I wore a Bantu knot out that was bomb.com (as Lestina would put it) so last night I just threw on a satin bonnet and went to sleep. This morning I took my water bottle and spritzed my hair all over and then flat twisted the sides and back and bobby pinned them up and let my hair just do what it do baby!

Have a great day!

Keep your hair off of your shoulders

I really like the Bantu knot out because it keeps my hair off of my shoulders and prevents the ends from rubbing against anything and becoming damaged. It may look short, but I got length!

So don’t underestimate a hairdo! Lol just kidding.

I tried a Bantu knot out and got great results

Hi everyone,

I pre-poo’d my hair overnight, washed, conditioned. Applied my leave in conditioner, sealed the moisture in with Shea Butter, applied the 4cnatural hair twist and define butter to my hair starting with my ends and grabbed hair and twisted. Tucked the hair around itself and placed a bobby pin on each knot. I removed the bobby pins before going to sleep and wore my hair in Bantu knots to church.

Today, I just untwisted each knot carefully and separated the hair.

Untwisted and fluffed:

 

Man I am loving this style. My curls are tight and not hanging onto my clothes and it has shine and is very soft.
