Beautiful ladies; SweetDrk1 your hair is on!!! I have been following ya from the BC!!!! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS HAIR!!!

Thank you soo much! I was/am very pleased with the volume I was able to achieve.

Here is what I did to achieve the curly fro. I co-washed with Trader Joe conditioner. I detangled in sections maybe 5 to 6 super large twists. I took each twist down, applied Giovanni DLI and re twisted the section into med sized twist. I let my hair air dry, I was outside and it was HOT so maybe 2-3 hours?? I then took each twist apart with Pooka Hair Nectar on my fingers. Oh I forgot to mention I always use Koils by Nature Hair butter when I twist. Sasha loves it! AND just to be sure it wasn't a freak accident. LOL. I twisted them again Monday night and rocked my Curly fro to work on Tuesday! Wooo Hoooo!!

I am so proud of the CN.com family...we represented in such a beautiful way!

My fro was like Krazy Coils'. I considered trying all sorts of things but just stuck to what has always worked for me - shea butter, and not too much. I'm learning more and more that less is more. As my hair grows longer I will wear it out more, especially when the weather gets cooler, because this sun is not a friend to my hair!

All of you ladies look absolutely fabulous!

Yay fros!!!

For my fro I co-washed with Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Conditioner. Then I applied my leave-in which is a mixture of Kinky Curly Knot Today, jojoba oil, castor oil and aloe vera juice. And then I applied Kinky Curly Curling Custard in small sections. Shook my head a few times and voila!

Holla for the afros! Whoot!! Whoot!!

In order to achieve my fro I used a wide tooth comb and Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in cream. Before the fro, I had a wash n'go that I wore to a job interview.

I started by sectioning my hair in 4 parts. I applied the Cantu to the section I was working on.
Then I took small sections and began to detangle my hair.
I twisted up the sections after combing through them (gently)
Once all my hair was detangled, I took all the twisted sections out and fluffed with my fingers.
Then I lightly sprayed my hair with a water/glycerin mixed and patted it into shape : )

My nighttime routine was just wearing a satin bonnet to sleep and using my wide tooth comb to make the fro big again the next day!

BEAUTIFUL FROS LADIES!!!!!
