Good morning fabulous naturals!

Never.... say never ! That was a great title for this post.  Why ? ...well, because I did something I just spoke about having no interest in doing.  And that was straighting my hair.....NO...NO...NO...not with creamy crack (lol) .  Just a simple roller set, and a little saran wrap.  I must admit I loooove the way it turned out ! As some of you may know from reading my previous post I shaved my sides and back pretty close.  So, there really isn't much hair on my head (LOL) accept the top and front.

So, here is what happened, I was pretty bored yesterday evening and decided to do quick co wash.  As I was doing so I thought...Hmmm I'm going to try a roller set , just looking for a chance... momentarily.  When I worked in the hair salon I specialized in short hair cuts and styles ( my fave"s)  So , styling my hair in a short style came very easy and I knew exactly how I was going to style it.  I already had the supplies needed to do this style ie, rollers, clips, net, etc.

I set my hair on the top with x large rollers , because I wanted a very lose, feather type of look.  Sat under the hooded dryer on low heat  for about 20 -30 minutes.  Came out , took out the rollers and was pleasantly surprised at the out come.   After applying some QB, Amla & olive heavy cream , I then went on to do a silk wrap , by simply applying Saran Wrap ever so tightly around my head.  I went around my head about 2-3 times with the saran wrap.  Sat, back under the dryer for an additional 15 minutes.

Ladies, when I began to finger style my hair.  I loved it !  It was extremely silky and super soft with tons of body.  I did not apply any direct heat what so flat iron or curling iron, nothing!.  And I do not intend on doing so.  At night all I did was pin curled my hair ( using big pin curls) in the same direction of the style I wanted to wear.  Woke up this morning...and it looks fabulous and very healthy. 

I may wear my hair like this for a few days and then go back to my  fro.  But, at least now I know I do have options and one that works with out any direct that!

I did add a heat protectant to my hair before setting, just for extra precautions.  Although I am under the impression that may only be needed if applying direct heat , ie curling irons, flat irons, hand held blow dryers. May be that's not true.... but you can never be to sure :)

Thanks for reading ladies, and remember to stay.....naturally fabulous !
