Someone is officially on hair vacay, y’all! I’m rocking the same blow-out from the ‘We Be Bunnin’ post and D.C. book signing, with full intentions of stretching it another week or more. Watch me. And with the extra free time, I’ve taken up daily meditation (peace, be still) and Netflix’ing ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’. #WholeMess
To achieve this particularly massive and glamnificent bun situation, I chunky two-strand twisted my dry hair with Natural Me Shea Cherry (gifted). I then covered it all with my now ratchet satin scarf bonnet thingy (full of runs, need a new one, stat) and hit the sack. When I released the twists this morning, my hair was smooth, shiny and loosely defined. I immediately gathered it all up and to the side and secured the length with a Goody Ouchless Band by pulling the hair through twice. Next, I loosely pinned the pony into a bun, similar to the way I created this one. Although I’m generally unexcited about, or rather, jaded on whipped shea butter recipes and the like (let’s be real, it’s kinda all the same ish), I thought I’d give this one a try after watching NaturallyGG reveal her glorious bantu knot-out. I love the texture and consistency of Shea Cherry (goes on smooth but is tacky enough to achieve hold), the light fragrance and the non-greasy results. It effortlessly smooths my edges and adds shine. I like it!
p.s. For those of you looking for a way to get them baby hairs laid (in a non-Ginuwine way), follow this no-gel routine!
