My hair was (still is) very soft for the braid out on Monday morning. My hair was big… perhaps a bit too big at times after the wind blew it all over the place… but I still loved it.
I took pictures that morning before leaving for work, but alas, those pics are trapped on my camera until I find my cord. Will post them when I can though.
Last night, I didn’t bother to retwist. I just went to bed with my satin scarf. I wasn’t surprised to see that the curls were completely squished. This morning, I quickly twisted my hair in 5-7 large two-strand twists, curled them with satin-covered foam rollers, and put a plastic cap on my head while I showered… steam some life back into my hair.
Well, my hair wasn’t “twisty” but it got back some of its softness. I pinned my hair back in an aysmmetrical-fashion and kept on moving about my day.
I got a few compliments on the ‘do! One co-worker (Russian woman) commented that she really liked the texture of my hair, much better than when my hair is in braids. That compliment alone is giving me more confidence to embrace my kinks and really work hard to keep it out of braids for a while.
I think this asymmetrical poofy thing in the front, messy “bun/pin-up” in the back will be my signature look while transitioning.
