Once my bantu knot out got old, I decided to do a Curlformer set, I havent used my Curlformers since October so I excited to use them again. I washed my hair using Giovanni 50:50 shampoo, conditioned with Giovanni Tea Tree conditioner. I detangled my hair in the shower with my fingers. After washing my hair, I got hungry LOL, so I stopped doing my hair to eat, so my hair pretty much air dried.

I usually put my curlformers on wet hair, but since I knew my hair wouldnt have much time to dry, I figured that it might be better to do on slightly damp hair. So I moisturized each section using Giovanni Direct Leave in, sealed with EVCO and appled Aloe Vera gel for hold before putting in the Curlformers. I think I made my sections too small in the back because once I got to the top I had ran out of Curlformers, so I used a flexi rod instead. I plan on purchasing more Curlformers before trying to do the set on my hair again. The next morning I took out the Curlformers.

As I took each one out, I checked my hair for split ends and I only found like 3-4 strands that were split. Which is pretty good considering that I havent had a trim since December. So I trimmed the ends that were split and moisturized the curls with Elasta QP Mango Butter. Then I seperated some of the curls and massaged away the parts and I was good to go.
My hair got frizzy that night, so before I went to sleep I put some of the curlformers back in. The next day I wore the curls pinned back, and now I have my hair in a bun.
