So since my flexirod set didnt last, I needed to figure out something to do with my hair until wash day (Sunday). So on Wednesday I cowashed my hair with Herbal Essences Totally Twisted. I detangled my hair in the shower in 4 sections with my wide tooth shower comb and twisted each section after detangling. I rinsed my hair with cool water while still in twists, but the twists unraveled the dried my hair with my microfiber towel turban. I applied Giovanni Direct Leave in and sealed with coconut oil. I put my hair in 16 braids using Curls Gel-les'c. I smoothed each section with my Denman brush and I twisted the ends of the braids. When I was done I applied castor oil to my scalp then tied my hair with satin scarf and went to sleep. I spent about an hour braiding my hair. The next day I just moisturized my hair with Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave in conditioner and put flexi rods on the ends. Yesterday evening I moisturized my hair with Carol's Daughter Tui Leave In and then applied Castor oil to each braid. Then I unraveled each braid. My braid out was a FAIL! Luckily I didn't have anywhere important to go, so I just pinned it back and today I just put it in a bun. Pix of the process are below.
