Update - closer to MBL now.
I'm doing more braids and buns, no re-wetting between washing, and lots of moisture. I've discovered the sock bun, which I love for day 3 or 4 hair.
And this is a five strand braid on my sis
And a Dutch flower braid (not sure I could do this one on myself, but it looks so cool).
I'm a little obsessed with braids right now (if you couldn't tell). It totally removed any anxiety about day 2 (or 3, 4, etc.) hair/curls and helps protect my hair. Love.
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
