Hey gorgeous! My name is Kia. Welcome to my blog! I'm a natural hair enthusiast turned master cosmetologist. On my site, you can expect business tips, hair tips, product reviews and more! Check back periodically or follow me on IG or Youtube to see what I'm up to.
So Sunday is my wash day and I decided to try something a little different this week. Usually, I shampoo my hair and blow it out or I set it with four large braids. Well, this week I decided to switch it up and the results were better then I could have expected and it was the easiest style in the world.
I started my wash day with a pre-poo concoction (water, oil, conditioner) in an applicator bottle. First, I sectioned my hair into 4 sections and applied the mixture at my roots and a little on the ends. I detangled each section with a wide-tooth comb. After my hair was detangled I hopped in the shower and shampooed and conditioned all four sections separately. After my hair was clean I wrapped it in an old t-shirt to get it 50% dry.
Once my hair was halfway dry I applied a leave-in conditioner to my entire head and sectioned it into 3 sections. I used my rat tail wide-tooth comb to part and gently detangle my hair at the roots. I got my hair as smooth as possible then I used an elastic headband to make a ponytail. Once my hair was in a smooth ponytail I applied the rollers using a corkscrew rolling technique. Once I was done applying the rollers I put on a bonnet and went to bed.
In the morning, I checked a curl in the back of my head and it felt a little moist so I sat under the dryer for about 30-40 minutes on low. Once I took my rollers out I had super soft shiny wand curl like curls.
After I removed the elastic headbands I took a wire afro pick and fluffed my roots to remove the harsh parts and Viola! My favorite part about this style was it was super quick and easy; Plus, sleeping was a breeze 😴! I think I will use this technique more often because my roots were nice and stretched which created lots of volume (which I love) and I used half the rollers I would normally use for a traditional rod set. I would rate this style a 10/10. I will definitely be doing this again!
