Natural Hair Out on the Town

Valentine’s Day High Puff

I’ve been revisiting some old styles with my hair recently and decided to wear them out to a few special events.  For Valentine’s Day the Hubby and I ended up hanging out with the kids for dinner so we went to one of our favorite mexican restaurants, Little Anita’s.  The food was great as always so I was glad we got to share it with the little ones who love to eat.

I decided to style my hair in a high puff that was pushed forward.  I did a curly twist-out a couple nights before so for this I just spritzed my hair with diluted leave-in conditioner and slicked the edges and sides with Eco Styler gel.  I didn’t realize my puff was so big but it actually looked really nice and went well with my new dress and earrings.

For another outing I went with my mom to see the play, “God, How Did We Get Here,” a romantic dramedy about relationships.   My mother’s friend, Dwight Cain, sang a song during the final scene of the play.  There were some really hilarious scenes and it was a treat to see an original theatre production which featured local actors.

For this event I decided to go with a flat twist-out style.  This one took about thirty minutes to prep the night before with flat twists in front and individual two strand twists in back.  I started with wet, freshly co-washed hair and applied Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner in four sections.  Before twisting, I applied a small amount of my homemade whipped shea butter to each twist section.  The style was very defined and had lots of volume.  I used small grey perm rods on the end of each twist for a little extra curl definition.  I was even able to get a second day out of the style by protecting it with a satin bonnet overnight.
