Why oh why must I attempt new things when I have to go somewhere? LOL Even though we were going to Gabriel's graduation ceremony, I decided to try doing a dry braidout on my hair using the Curl Enhancing Smoothie since many ladies enjoy using it along with the Curling Souffle (which was still in my hair from the day before.) I did the same technique on my hair except this time my hair wasn't soaking wet :) I braided my hair in medium braids and twisted the last 2 inches or so. (I was mentally preparing myself to do another puff since the smoothie had glycerin in it too.)
Once again, as I removed the braids and the air got to my fro, it started to swell! It was soo soft...but it once again had very little hold. I knew immediately that it was not going to last an entire day before leaving the bathroom! At the graduation ceremony, I was sooo concerned about it because I could tell it was swelling and shrinking lol. I just wanted it to remain in control especially since I really wasn't in a position to be able to tweak it at the moment :D
Well, this dry braidout lasted about 6 1/2 hours before I put it up! I don't think it looked bad, but I felt like my fro was behaving unpredictable so I chickened out and up it went at about 1:30 pm!
