That I have a ONE WEEK limit on free hair or puffs! I do! Maybe you have noticed. Anytime I do a style that includes puffs, I tend to braid or twist the puffs or make some kind of style change a week later.
V's pretty little puffs from her latest style are no exception:
They held up quite nicely for the week. Every morning when I sprayed her braids with our watered down Taliah Waajid spray, I also sprayed the puffs really thoroughly. Then I used my fingers to work the spray into and all over the free hair. Once satisfied with that, I would reshape them into those cute little rounded puffs.
Her cornrows are also holding up quite well for the first week, but I can now see them showing signs of frizzing! Will I make it another two weeks?
As mentioned, I don't like to leave the puffs in for more than a week because I don't want them to get overly dried out, or overly tangled. That would cause too much stress and breakage when I eventually did take them out.
So I decided to make each puff into a single braid. The Results:
They don't want to hang straight down - but that's curly hair for ya!
If you can see - I didn't even take out the black, cloth hair ties I had on the end of each cornrow. I separated the 4 ends from the puff - got them very wet, detangled and combed each one, then I combined the two smaller sections form the right so that I had 3 sections and braided! Really Quick!
