I hope that you are doing very well. If you are part of my protective style challenge currently happening on YouTube, I hope that this hairstyle will come in handy. It is EXTREMELY simple and easy to achieve. If you want to give your hair a break or just simply do not have a lot of time on your hands, then this is for you. However, this can be tricky to achieve on 4C hair. I don’t know about you guys, but I would never even dream about achieving this on my hair in its shrunken glory. Whenever my hair is fully stretched however (which doesn’t happen very often), this is my go to style.
In this particular case, I had just taken down a set of braids and needed something to do with my hair prior to washing and styling again. Needless to say, my hair was pretty dry and dirty as well, eek! I opted to moisturize and seal my hair, even though I knew I was going to wash it, just to make it more manageable for the bun. I also did not use any gel to smooth my edges for a couple of reasons. My hair doesn’t seem to like gels very much. They tend to leave my hair extremely dry. Also, I knew this style was temporary so there was no need to have it sculpted to my head. Lol
