End of the Day Knot-Out Results

Pros: It yields more of a consistent curl pattern from root to tip (compared to the TwistnCurl which yields waves and curls) Relatively easy to sleep on Quick styling time- hopefully I’ll see this benefit after a few more times I look slightly less crazy on…

A Noteworthy Protective Style

By Curly Nikki 4 Comments

When Leslie strutted her fly self into that restaurant on Saturday night, my draw dropped! When I think of protective styles, I think of the same boring old buns, rolls, or twists.
