What happened To My Hair Lately…

I haven’t been experimenting with different hair styles lately, since my goal for this relaxer stretch is to keep my ends hidden and protected with the occasional “cheat day” lol. I have been keeping up with my weekly washdays and treatments. 
Flexi-rods on Relaxed Hair
I’m currently 9 weeks post so its essential that my new growth is stretched out to avoid single strand knots. So this week I grabbed my flexi-rods and placed 8 in total to achieve these curls.
High Bun on Relaxed Hair
For the last couple of weeks I've been rocking high and low buns. Its so exciting that I can do my buns without fillers.
Ponytail Hang Time
From my high bun I just let my ponytail hang as I was feeling extremely confident on that day. I was pleasantly surprised how thick and long my pony was. I finally have some hang time.
Air-drying Relaxed Hair
This is probably the last time I will airdry my hair out like this till after my relaxer. My new growth needs to be stretched but I think I will go for the tension blow out method for the remaining washdays.

How have you been wearing your hair lately?

Be inspired...

    1. Thanks Becca! I used Aloe Vera gel, tied my edges for 30mins and they were laid.

  3. Wow love your hair. You have the best flexi-rod sets and your bun and pony are simply gorgeous. How do you create the high bun? Do you put it in a ponytail then twist it around to form a donut shape then secure with a bobby pin or tuck the ends under. I think you had a tutorial somewhere that I have seen before but for the life of me cannot find it.

    Gorgeous hair Tomie and I still see a hint of the crimson color.

    1. Awww thank you Anna! You are correct, I just start with one half and twist around to meet the second half and secure it with 2-3 bobbi pins
