I decided to rock the straight look in the winter and then put my braids in for the summer. For my 22n'd birthday this past May, I decided to switch it up again. I sat down in my dresser's chair and told her to give me a natural style. I had tried a twist out before wasn't too fond of it because I had major shrinkage, but my dresser did a flat twist out and I adored it. It lasted for about a week and then I was back to the heat with straight hair.
Its been a few months since then and I'm still tired of the braids (though very convenient) and not fond of the extra work and fear of water and sweat that comes with having a press and curl. I've been researching websites like Naturally Curly, reading up on blogs like Curly Nikki, and watching countless YouTube videos (my favorites come from Naptural85) for a while on techniques, products and everything else in between and finally was ready. So I got my wide tooth comb and bottle of Tea Tree Wen, sectioned out my hair and went to work.
This was the end result of a Wash-n-Go braid out style I did.
