Hey sugars! Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far and you have been enjoying the beautiful Spring weather we are having in the UK. Today’s post is about hair, many people ask me how I blend my curly weave with my own hair so the details are listed below. Its pretty simple, you only need a few products.
I have two methods of blending, depending on how curly I want my hair to be, I either do small bantu knots or flat twists as illustrated in the photo’s.
What you need:
- A comb of your choice
- Some gel. I use either Elasta QP Glaze or Eco Styler (with Argon oil)
- A head scarf
- Comb out your leave out.
- Add your gel of choice to the section you are working with. (The gel helps to hold the curls/waves all day)
- Flat twist the hair
- Bantu knot the ends.
- Apply your head scarf when going to bed – I use a silk scarf.
I do this every night, adding gel just once or twice a week so the hair doesn’t become too hard or flakey. The finished result should look like the two images below.
In the morning you just take out the twists carefully and style as desired with your fingers. It should look somewhat like the image below depending on how you want your parting.
Curly weave is high maintenance! If you are not someone who likes to take time with their hair – DONT get curly weave lol. To maintain the curls of the weave, I apply a curl activator or leave in conditioner every single morning, combing through with just my fingers. You can use any curl activator or leave in conditioner, I get the same results no matter what brand I use.
To see how I keep my weave looking fresh, you can read a post I did a while back here
