How Are You Wearing Your Curls Today?
Out of laziness, lack of sleep, and dislike for the look of my curls today, I pulled my hair up into a bun. I smoothed the edges with AfroVeda’s PUR Whipped Gelly and secured my curls with a Goody Ouchless Band. Some days, I feel frumpy with my bun… today I feel particularly fly.

What about you? What’s your head looking like today? Are you feeling frumpy or fly?

    I feel frumpy. I went old school today and I am rockin two french braids. I braided them so tight I had to take them down at work and redue them so it might look a little rough.

    Im feeling fly, no frumpyness here! I flat twisted my hair in the front and have the rest in two strand twists πŸ™‚ I really like this style and Im excited to try even more new styles!

    I feel frumpy. I tried the Shea moisture smoothie for my twist out, attempting to replicate afroveda results, and my hair is so dry! Ugh!

    I just wanted to give a little laughter to those still at work or that just got off. I had a coworker give this to me an I can so relate to it, thought I would share with you…


    When someone comes in & announces, "office meeting in 5 minutes," & you think, "what the f..k do they want now?"….You need to pray at work.

    When you hear a coworker call your name & the first thing that crosses your mind is, "what the hell does this bitch want now?" & you try to hide underneeath your desk….. You need to pray at work.

    When you're in the elevator & it stops to pick up someone who stood for 5 minutes waiting for the darn thing only to go DOWN one floor, & you say "that lazy bastard"…. You need to pray at work.

    If you avoid saying more than hello or how are you doing to someone because you know it's going to lead to their life story… You need to pray at work.

    When you take some vacation time & come back to find a mountain of paperwork sitting on your desk because no one else would do it & you think, "sorry ass m#$^%f%&#s"…You need to pray at work.

    Hope you get a good laugh out of those, I didn't give out the whole list just some of them.

    I've been putting my hair in a bun for a week now. I'm getting really lazy these days πŸ˜€ but my lazy days are when I get the best results. So it's fly for me.

    I'm wearing a retro updo that saw on MsVaughn's YouTube channel.

    I'm wearing a bunpuff today (some of my hair still isn't bun length), just as I did for the past 2 days because I overdid it with the burnt sugar pomade and my own castor oil/CD Lisa's Elixir/water spray mix when twisting it. My twist out was so greasy that the collar of my red shirt was stained black. Upside – 4 days later no additional product and my hair isn't dry. Today I did have to use my Qhemet amla/olive heavy cream and amla oil pomade to try and keep the flyaways tamed. I never thought to try my jar of Afroveda Pur Whipped Gelly, maybe I've finally found a use for it.

    I feel frumpy fly right now b/c I still have my chunky twists in from last night with a scarf over it–frumpy. BUT I LOVE THIS SCARF–fly lol. It's orange/grey/black/white. Orange & grey are two of my favorite colors.

    I think I'm gonna be hella fly when I take these twists out & fluff for my stupid weigh-in later today. I co-washed & air dryed last night and it was so shiny, defined, & pretty.

  • Ms. Lisa says:

    I am rocking a 5 day twist out! I am fly with my big hair.

  • RoseofSharron says:

    I'm feeling fly today fellow curlies! πŸ˜‰ my hair is in 4 days old curlformers style today! I've pin-curled my hair each night to maintain curl…. loving it…. I love your bun! I love wearing my hair in a bun… high, low or to the side. very chic!

  • Unknown says:

    Today I'm wearing my hair in a not to high bun with a Leaf Sequin Headband.

  • LaTiaChantal says:

    I'm actually having 2nd day hair for the 1st time with my twist out!!! I'm so excited! First because my twist out came out cute and second because I'm having 2nd day hair! I wonder how long I can make it last… πŸ™‚

  • GGmadeit says:

    I am rocking an old twist out on very dirty hair and I am supa fly today! I am rocking this big hair! I need to stop being lazy, but I'm still cute! πŸ™‚

  • Sherri says:

    Today i'm rocking a coil out and I love it! Everyday it's hit or miss with me and this hair. This is only my 3rd week wearing my natural hair. Last night I cowashed and coiled with Sheamoisture curl enhancing smoothie. This morning i rubbed it lightly with evoo and unraveled the coils and it's the bomb!!!

    Actually, I'm feeling pretty triumphant today…I'm rockin' a 4th-day (yes, 4 days) roller set. I wasn't going to chance it, but I decided to get up early this morning and hit the grocery store before the crowd and my curls still looked OK so I moisturized, smoothed my edges and ran out the door.

  • mood_indigo says:

    Last night I did my first ever pineapple (it's growing!!!!) and am rocking a 2nd day twist out. Loving the full fluffiness!!

    meant to say "I love buns!!"

    Buntastic! I love buns? Curls out (semi-pouf),curls tucked in, one big twist and tucked, any kinda bun is alright with me. As long as it's well moisturized looking (not greasy) and the ends look healthy!!

    I co-washed last night and air-dried/slept with my hair in braids. I don't particuarly like the braided look on my transitioning hair, but I do like it in a bun. I, too, am currently rocking a bun and I like it πŸ˜‰


  • Chantel says:

    I'm keeping the conditioner in until I get home, run and then rinse it out.

    I did an overnight henna last night, washed it out this am, applied Macadamia Nut Deep conditioning masque with a heating cap for 1 hr before putting it in a bun with a pretty headband for work. Not feeling like I look great but I am "beautiful on the inside" today because I know that I am doing something great for my hair. It will look great tomorrow. LOL!

    I say Fly. But it's big so I am geting the, "looks" from co-workers. LOL

  • vonnie says:

    i'm going to wear my first wash and go in months πŸ˜€ I've been doing protective styling for a while, will be nice to have my hair out

    Since I have had a plastic cap on my head (deep conditioning) for the past 3 hours- waiting for my baby to take a nap, I guess I am frumpy at the moment. πŸ˜‰

  • Tiffany says:

    I don't think your hair can look anything but great. Today I have four cornrows and I am rockin a an adorable multi-color hat. So you can see my front edges. I actually like this and I didn't think I would. So I am fly, fly, fly!

    Peace, Love and Chocolate
