NATURAL HAIR: TAKING DOWN BANTU KNOTS

Last week I posted a tutorial + review using Entwine Couture hair products.
I was not able to feature the take down of my bantu-knots within the video, the footage
had dis appeared!  Welp, I found it yesterday . . . Enjoy!

DIY STYLE


I've posted quite a few photo's on IG that included a shot of my DIY jeans. I never thought of them to be a big deal but so many of you requested a DIY tutorial on how I shread them. I aim to please :)

SHE BANGS!

In case you missed it. . .


My birthday was last week and like always, I am always looking to do something different with my look with each year of growth.
It's like a type of motivation to keep things fresh ;)

I maintain my bantu-knot out's by doing a pineapple-- bringing all of my hair to the top of my head [near my forehead] and applying a hair band.  With my current cut and the shape that I am now going for, I do two sections, half of my hair goes to the very front of my head near my forehead and the back is slightly lifted and put in a hair band.

FIRST TIME JUICING!


My parents got me a juicer for my birthday I put my Juicer to use for the first time today!  I ended up with a deliciously refreshing drink


I'd say, not bad for my first time juicing.  I definitely need to purchase more veggies next time.  Although it looks like a lot on the cutting board, this bunch of healthy goodness didn't make as much as I'd expected.  I'll write down the actual measurement next time. 

Cutting Board: Architec Eco Smart / Knife: Tomodachi Parer / Juicer: T-Fal

ADDING ROOTS TO WIG

Do you remember the RPGShow wig that I recently reviewed?  
You can check that out >>here<< 

I love the original cut of the wig so I kept it as is.  The only thing I felt needed to be done was just a slight darkening of the roots.  That's an easy fix, I used a rinse so it isn't permanent.  The results actually aren't as dark as I'd expected so I am going to purchase a darker dye, possibly a semi permanent since I feel like a have the hang of this 'dying of the roots' ordeal.  My goal is to get the roots as close to my natural color as possible, to make it believable. 

Another thing that I needed to work at was making the hair line more realistic.  This problem was solved by simply applying the wig slightly behind my hairline.  I then blended my natural hair line-- Thanks for the suggestions YouTube fam!  I read your comments and take them into consideration.  ;)


To get foxy gal waves, I used my usual oil and water mixture 
to moisten the hair, and did two bantu-knots.
 Placing a satin bonnet over it tomorrow 
we shall see free flowing, heatless curls--I call them Foxy Gal curls!!
