Pics are from 10 hours after I first did the style
Last weekend, I was tasked with being one of the hosts of the Kinky Twistmas Holiday Bash here in Dallas. I had planned weeks ago to wear a rod set, and I took the opportunity to practice on a section of my hair beforehand. Thank God I did, because it was not turning out the way I wanted. I shudder to think what would have happened if I didn’t do a practice run. 🙂
A twist and curl turned into a curly Fro situation was my Plan B, and I ended up being really pleased with the way the final result turned out. I’m apologize for the quality of the pics, but I didn’t have much time to take pics of the fresh style.
I decided to use Jane Carter Wrap & Roll foam to do the twists after watching CharyJay’s “Party Tendrils” style, but I’m sure any twisting cream would have worked. I twisted my hair in small sections and added rods.
On Saturday morning, I undid the twists and separated them for the “curly fro”. Since my curls were so tight I ended up looking like a muppet, so I grabbed some bobby pins and pinned my hair into an updo. I used my favorite Curls Curl Control Passion Fruit Paste to smooth down my hair.

The style held up well for the event, and I was able to wear it for two additional days before having to remoisturize my hair. I think the Jane Carter Wrap and Roll was the culprit. The next time I attempt this style, I will use a twisting cream that is more moisturizing and offers hold.
