My name is JT and I'm submitting a photo of my curly 'do for my graduation. I simply put rollers in my hair, took out the next day then separated and twirled...learned this cute style from mahogany curls! Thanks for this helps me style my usually untamed hair, LOL!

In Pennsylvania for the weekend attending my family reunion.
After the BC March 1st, I finally found my fave product. Knot Today and Kinky Curly Curling Custard! I love rocking my TWA. Being natural makes me feel more confident and hip, lol!

Hi Nikki, This is a picture of me ( July 26, 2010) on my first day after my loc take down ( I had loc’s and removed them over the course of 11 days). I’m on my way to work in my new dress with my new hair- feeling some kind of sassy!!!

I'm rockin' a twistout! Headed out for my birthday! Detangled with Giovanni Deeper Moisture conditioner; cleansed with Dr. Bronners baby mild castille soap (diluted with water); deep conditioned with Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose + EVOO + Honey; set twists with a mixture of a little bit of each of the following: Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner + jojoba oil + sweet almond oil + vegetable glycerin + Qhemet Biologics Amla and Olive Heavy Cream; took twists down with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

I wanted to go for the Jonelle Monae look, I was really inspired after watching msvaughn create the style on youtube, so I shampooed and deep conditioned my hair (since it will be up for a week or so) had my stylist french braid the back ( I have two) and I pinned the front up.
I'm on my way to my PAJAMAS in this pic!! LOL!! Long work week:). I'm trying very low manipulation and/or protective styles for at least a week at a time to reduce shedding. This was my first small, two strand twist out (used the twist and turn technique) and I loved the results, so I took a few pics when I got home! I wore the twists for 10 days and took them out the evening of the 10th day with plans to henna on the evening of the 11th day. On the morning of the 11th day, I plumped the twist out by spritzing with my newly created mix of aloe juice, distilled water, Deva One and my new "holy grail" JBCO. Then, I massaged my scalp and sealed the ends with more JBCO. Really liking the loc like, "piecey," defined effect. I'm planning on delaying my henna to see how long I can maintain this twist out. Thank you and the community for being a wonderful resource for information and natural products!

This was the result of my first time using Uncle Funky’s Daughter products that I had won in a give-away! I used the shampoo, condish, Good Hair leave-in and the Curly Magic Curl Stimulator. I really liked it! Even better than KCCC. Oh and I was just going to work! Lol.
This is the aftermath of my adventure at the MAC counter. LOL. This is my first attempt at wearing my hair out since I've been natural (I usually wear coils). I tried a twist out with Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue.

This should be what you're looking for "JazBNatural" in reference to Shelli hairstyle. That's the link for the hairstyle and how she did it.

JazBNatural said...

Thanks so much Sabrina! I'm gonna go check it out right now. And yw Shelli! & Thanks for the inspiration! I'm totally gonna try that style.

Skillsgill said...

Omg JazB, you have a ton of hair (just snuck a peak at your profile). I'm sure this will look fantastic on you!! If you need a video of how to do the Senegalese twists (I did!!), I put the link to the youtube video I watched in the comments. I'd love to see how this turned out when you try it!!! Send an update where I can find the pic=)!!


JazBNatural said...

Thanks Shelli! I saw the link to the youtube tutorial on your original post. I got so excited that I already did a few twists on my old twist out, now I'm waiting for them to dry! I was wondering, do the twists have to be done on wet hair? Or can I do them on dry, stretched hair?

I'll post an update to this comment section once I do it. I was gonna do box braids for my next style tomorrow, but I'm gonna do these instead! =]

Skillsgill said...

I think you can do it on dry stretched hair, BUT then do like I did and soak them in the shower. I think the wet hair drying is what really sets the "coil" and gives the loc like affect. Then, when COMPLETELY dry, untwist ad spritz to plump. Can't wait to see your results=).
