"A Semi-New Look"

Ok, I was hesistant about posting these pictures because you can't see my hair as closely as I would like, but I figured, "what the heck, this is a hair blog and all of the pictures can't be perfect but at least visible." I tried something new this weekend when I washed my hair. I did a two-strand twist and instead of rolling the ends I put little rubber-bands. Also, when I usually do a two-strand twist I end up with at least 30-40 twist therefore it gives a tighter curl but this time I did much larger twist and I ended up with about 12-15 twist.

I do like the looser curl and I like the way it hangs, the only thing is I have to do it again this weekend because it doesn't last as long as the tighter curls, go figure :) I have so much hair and it is very thick (not complaining, I know I am blessed) so I am trying to find easier ways to have the curly look without taking 2 hours to twist/roll my hair. This took me less than an hour after I washed my hair.

I twist my hair and roll up the end with a rubber band when I wash my hairs since I still have to braid and band. I let my hair dry like this and my hair is perfect when I take down the twist. I generally get too tight of a curl when I use rollers or use the soft spikes. Your hair looks gorgeous!

Ladies (Darcia, Aya, Cashana, and Cheleskilove) thank you so much for the compliments.

Normally, I roll the ends and it does give a tighter look, but one of the main things I like about this look is you can see more of my length, kind of like wearing it freestyle with a little waive. I rarely wear my hair freestyle so it was nice to find a style that shows the length and is less work :) Now I just have to find a way to make it last longer.

This weekend, I am going to try to do smaller twist, but not as small as I usually to, and rubberband the end and maybe it will still give a loose curl style but last a little longer. I will post if it comes out different.

Your hair looks beautiful as always! I've been to lazy to try soft spikes or curlers so maybe I should go the two-strand route.

I like this look. I love soft waves and curls, in fact I prefer them. I think I'll give this a try. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Katika! Your hair is looking beautiful also. Yesterday after washing my hair I tried a braid out, it gives a wavy look but a little tighter. I think I may like it more when it loosens up, I will find out in a couple of days :)
