This is the first time that I have been able to tame my edges since I have been natural!!!
I am sooooo siced right now! I can't even describe how it feels to have my hair up without curls creeping down looking unruly and fuzzy!
How I did it:
- Started out with a two day old braid out on clean, blow-dryed hair.
- Brushed up the side with my boars bristle brush after adding a mixture of
- Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade
- Oyin Shine and Define
- Eco Styler Gel (Crystal)
- It took a few tries and a few extra dabs of Eco Styler to "make it work" - in my Tim Gunn voice
- The Burnt Sugar Pomade and Shine and Define WERE NOT CUTTING IT ALONE unfortunately, which made for a longer process but a more conditioned and softer look so I am not mad!
I'm just generally excited to be able to wear a bun to be honest... I dropped out of Hairscapades Bun Challenge because I already knew my hair was not pressed to be put into such confines and my edges are a little suspect, BUT this give me hope to ONE day be able to do it!
As for now, I will rock this bun until wash day!
