Unwavering Drive

I’m a strong woman.

You can’t measure my strength by muscle mass or with weights.

It’s a kind of strength gained only through compromise and the reflection and understanding of past faults.

I’m always putting one foot forward but remembering the path I traveled to get here.

I serve as an example for everyone who has ever wanted more.

Heatless Curls

IMG_20140203_003647

To begin, I sectioned my hair into 2 sections and began with the back. Smaller (blue) flexi rods were used on the back half of my head. The front section was split into 2 sectioned by an angled part. Larger (orange) flexi rods were used on the bigger sectioned area. Once completed the hair was left to air dry.

After my hair was dry, the flexi rods were removed. To sleep, I pineappled my hair — held my head upside down to get all of the curls in one direction before tying with a scarf. In the morning, I separated the curls to my liking.

Don’t let the tight curls fool you — hang time!!
Despite the tight curls I did not cut my hair. The length is still there, check it out!

I always make sure to use a moisturizer, then a gel or hold product before rolling my hair. Adding a moisturizer helps to lock in the moisture, and the gel helps to hold the curl without drying out the hair. This style was done on wet hair.
