Hello hello Natural hair enthusiasts! Your ethnic haircare lady is back with another post. I am very aware that special occasions are very stressful for kinky-coilies like me, we always wonder what we are going to do to look pretty despite our unruly hair of African descent.
If you read my blogs , you will know that even as a bride I can still rock my 4c strands with minimal manipulation and still fro-slay.
For my graduation ceremony, I would say things worked well that I was travelling the Friday before the Saturday of the graduation ceremony. Therefore I had to collect my outfit on the Saturday morning of the graduation ceremony, I was lucky to be able to do my hairstyle before turning up at the Graduation Offices.
I sectioned the front of my hair for a fringe, then tied the back of the hair into a low bun, bearing in mind that the cap needed room in the mid-section of my head. The low-bun was extended with a piece of synthetic kinky-braid and secured it with bobby-pins.I then flat twisted the front hair to the side. I wrapped the hairstyle overnight for products to set and the coils to lay down neatly.
In the morning I unraveled the twists. The flat-twistout was still acceptable even though I would have loved for it to be a little bit more defined. I was then ready to leave for the Graduation offices to try-on a suitable cap.
The cue was clear and I had all the time to myself to try-on different cap sizes until a firm hold was achieved. My friends were ready with Cameras to capture the moments.
It was more like another wedding day for my husband and I , LOL!
My hairstyle was simple, the cap did fit well and I felt amazing in it. It was a low manipulation style and that is what makes a natural hair enthusiast happy, just the thought of knowing that your hair is not in trouble with the hairstyle you chose, is so relaxing.
I just kept smiling on the happiest day of my student life. Until next time lots of love by: Lebo @tsokungwoman
