When we finally made this video his hair was about 1 inch long. According to the Nudred website this is a perfect length for twisting, but I still feel like it might have worked better when his hair was even longer than this. It suggest that hair be between 1/8 - 2 inches long. This is the look we got when his hair was 1 inch....
Now as for how Young Man C feels about this style. Well, I blame it on the age, but he doesn't care for it. His dad and I both thought it looked FANTASTIC and his whole soccer team complemented him on it, but since it was MY idea, that makes it the OPPOSITE of what he wants to do with his hair. So the instant I finally got him to tape the video review he had me cut his hair all off again! URGH! I think with a little more practice I would have had this Nudred thing really figured out!
MISTAKE: I don't know if it makes a real difference or not, but one mistake I realized I made in using the Nudred when I watched their video on their website was that they apply the Nu-potion directly to the Nudred sponge, but I applied it to his hair.
Here are a few other details about the product:
Question and Answer page on their site: Nudred Questions
Price: $29.99 for 1 Nudred and 1 4oz bottle of Nu-Potion
Time to make twists: 10-20 minutes
Ease of use: Simple!
Opinion of product: I think this product is really cool. I have made twists in C's hair in the past and it takes painstaking hours! This only takes a few minutes. HUGE timesaver!
Locs: According to their website you can also use Nudred to start and maintain locs in the beginning stages. I can't speak to how well this would work since we have not tried it, but it sounds like a cool idea. I would LOVE to try it on C, but again, he is NOT interested!

If you would like to try the Nudred for yourself, make sure you come back tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!
