8 Bantu Knot-out

Hey Maicurlies,

I am ADDICTED to Instagram! Yes I have admitted to this before (here) but seriously it is like a disease LOL!

Anywho, recently I started to take photos of what my hair looks like (quite frequently), so I figured from time to time I will post a few photos here too. Primarily if I have photos of my styling process (taking down my hair, separating, fluffing and styling) or if I capture how a style looks as the days go on I will load those up here.

8 Bantu Knot out

I want to start with my recent Bantu Knot-out which I did on 8 Bantu Knots. Normally I prefer doing smaller knots (not too tiny) just because it means I’d have tighter curls which creates fullness for my fine hair and it usually (I repeat, usually) means I don’t have to separate as much since my hair will already be in small sections. However, Bantu knots & sleep do not go hand in hand and I am tender headed so I did 8 Bantu Knots.

Bantu Knots

I put in the Bantu Knots literally right before bed and took them down the next morning.

I separated the sections, fluffed my hair, separated some more, fluffed some more and then decided to pin it back for Day 1:

Day 2:

I did the pineapple method to sleep and covered my hair using a scarf. The next day (day 2). I again had it pinned back but without any curls hanging down this time.  By the second day my hair fluffier which gave me volume (yay) and of course also invited frizz but I am fine with that. 

That is it Maicurlies! Let me know if you like these kinds of posts or not! 

Thanks

What I’ve been up to – Instagram & Pinterest

Hey Maicurlies,

If you didn’t know I have become a Instagram (IG) FREAK! Seriously, it is an addiction. Before I was a Pinterest addict and now IG has become my fascination. My Instagram profile is not limited only to all things hair, I do put up posts about skin care and health (but yes hair is a big part of it.) I also have snippets of my YouTube videos on there too. What I love the most about IG is that there is so much inspiration and you get constant updates! Natural beautiful crowns and everything in between all the time! 

Anyways, the purpose of this post is to share some of the things I have been doing with my hair, skin and health. These images are all on my IG page so if you aren’t following me yet, please do! While you are at it, you might as well follow me on Pinterest too (yes I am being cheeky :D) 

So, as a way to perhaps encourage you to follow me on IG I put together a collage of some of the recent photos I have up on there (putting on every single one would too self promoting and self obsessed lol).

Hope to see you on my IG & Pinterest pages! If you have IG or Pinterest please let me know, I love supporting others! 

Thanks
