Curly hair with Foil and a Flat Iron? Hmmm…

It’s a lazy snow day here in the DC area and I am taking full advantage of it. I have not moved off of the couch in about an hour. Speed is on Encore, and my phone is in my hand, while the husband and kid are playing in the snow. Life is good!

While browsing facebook I saw this video in one of my natural hair groups and became very intrigued. Using foil and a flat iron to get pretty curls? Very interesting!

So many people were saying it can’t possibly be done on Black hair, but I didn’t believe them. Being that I was doing absolutely nothing else, I had to try it!

Cute, right? So easy and fun. I love that heat is not being applied directly to my hair. It’s the same effect as pin curling, but without the wait. Now, just an fyi, my hair was quasi-straightened from earlier this week when I had to trim my hair. I have no idea if it will work on my hair in it’s kinky state. If you try it that way, please let me know your results!

Ok, back to movie time and lounging on the couch. Stay toasty!

How to Get My New Protective Style

20140730_143152

Last week after doing my hair for 4 hours I had a mini photoshoot with Johanna. She’s always up for some camera time and I secretly love that about her. Anyway, after posting one of the photos on facebook, quite a few people commented on how much they loved my hair. A few asked me where I got it done. I was quite proud to say that I learned it from a youtube person. Now it’s not perfect, and it doesn’t look half as great as theirs, but I still love it. Now I know that you’ve noticed by now how terrible my eyebrows are. Stop staring and judging. A new lady at the nail shop totally jacked them up, and now I’m screwed trying to grow them out so someone can make sense of them. I have no idea how to perfectly manicure eyebrows, so I have just been walking around looking quite sad. Stop judging. I see you judging with your judgey eyes Mister/Misses Mcjudgeyson. Hmph. It could happen to any of us.

Anywho, here is the tutorial that I used. If you decide to to do this style, or some variation of it, let me know so I can check it out!
