Mel – Fro Loving!
- How often you do this style
While this is my favorite style because it is so fun I usually do this maybe every 2 or 3 weeks or when I am going out to an event/party. The first picture is from a previous Halloween party (it was so much fun doing a Fro-hawk and getting to play with colors in my hair).
- How long it takes you
When I first do the style it takes me time because I actually style it on freshly washed hair. The longest processes is combing out the fro. I try to be as gently as I can and the combing takes me at least 20 – 30 minutes. When I wash my hair I use conditioner let that sit in my hair for a little bit so that it softens my curls and makes it a little easier to detangle. So the entire process from start to end can take up to 1 hour (including conditioning, detangling and styling).
- How long it lasts
I like to leave my hair out for at least a few days (especially since it takes me a while to get it looking fierce). After day 1 I will “freshen-up” my hair with water and a little leave-in conditioner and continue to do that for at least 3 days. While I like having my hair out I know it can be a little drying so I do want to protect my hair so I tend to put it up in a bun if it is not out. (If I could I would wear it out in a fierce fro 24/7 I would!)
