|Curlformers long and narrow.|
|Not happy with my Curlfomers results.|
So, I finally got around to setting my hair in my Curlformers. I bought them last year when I was transitioning and I loved the look. This is the first time I have used my Curlformers on 100% natural hair. I washed and deep conditioned my hair before installing the Curlformers. I sectioned my hair and used my Mop Top daily conditioner, jojoba oil, and Mop Top medium hold gel. Considering I was interrupted several times by my won't take a nap toddler, it took me about a hour and ten minutes to wash and install 40 Curlformers.
Let me be perfectly honest, I really disliked the final results. No, I hated the final results! I even separated the curls and still hated the look. You can tell by my lack luster look the I'm not happy. The hubby and I were invited to a party Friday night and I wanted to look great. Since becoming parents the only time I dress up is for church. I wanted to have some wow factor going on, but no it didn't work out like I expected. So, as I was racking my brain on what to do I decided to pick out my hair. I knew it would get big and I figured if I had to I could always hop in the shower and do a quick wash n go.

Well, I love the results of my picked out curls! Of course I pinned back the front with a flower and then I just clipped the other side down to somewhat contain my fro. This look really reminds me of my Bantu knot out. I'm finding out that the hubby really digs the big hair and my son said that I was the prettiest mommy.
|Next day hair.|
I slept in my silk scarf in my first pineapple attempt and the next day I was surprised that my hair looks basically the same. My hair is really out there! I like that I have these curls springing forth from my head and then all this volume. In the past when I did my hair in Curlformers I would only get basically one day hair. Here I am on day two thinking I might get day three or four hair out of this look. So this is me embracing a failed attempt with my Curlfomers and loving the picked out look. I'm glad I did something different with my hair because I learned something new. Until next time...
