i'm back to the basics after my fun experience with a twist and curl and the pocahontas. i went to target to find the elastics SBB used in her flexi8 pic. i nearly lost my mind on the accessories aisle. but i bought about 20 goody small elastic headbands and some scrunchies for a more refined "sock" bun.
i recall people were concerned about cotton scrunchies. i dampened mine so it won't absorb too much moisture from my hair, and it works fine. mine came in a six pack, so i'll rotate scrunchies to give them time to dry in between uses.
on other news, i found a picture from two months ago that was at a similar angle to the one i took a few days ago. it grew about an inch. with the challenge, i'm sure i'll retain an extra inch come september. excluding shrinkage, i might be APL by the end of the year... who woulda thunk it...lol
