Put a Straw In It

Although I didn't go away for Memorial Day weekend.. I still had plans, so I wanted to make sure my hair was clean and styled. It was very hot/muggy and I knew wearing my hair out would be a fail. So after shampooing my hair,  I decided to twist it...as usual!!

I hate how stringy the ends look due to the relaxed hair, but I also didn't want my twists to look super short...So, instead of doing a bantu-knot out or using my satin rollers, I curled the ends with some straws.


I just cut the straws up so they would be about 1.5-2 inches long. Dipped the straw in water, rolled the ends then secured each straw with a bobby-pin.





I twisted and pinned back the left side #mysignaturelook
 All done.

  9. I love this method of curling your ends! I'm going to try this. I've been wearing my transitioning hair in braids and plaits with my own hair, and I wasn't sure about how to curl the ends. Thanks for the post!
