Corkscrew Hairstyle

Hi everyone, this weekend I tried a new hairstyle. I usually wear my locs straight, but I wanted some type of volume to my hair. So I attempted the corkscrew hairstyle. It turned out pretty cute, but the corkscrews are small, because I used the really skinny pipecleaners like the ones children use in arts & crafts. They were 12' in length, but real tiny. So here is the info below:

I started at the nape of the neck. I spritzed each section with water, and started to rod the hair from the end to the top. I had to bend the rods at the end to make sure they wouldn't poke or scratch me. This was very time consuming and tedious!

This is how my whole head looked with the pipe cleaners in it. Lawd, I couldn't go anywhere cuz honey my hair was really huge! LOL

I slept with the rods in my hair, and the next day I just took them down, which took forever as well. Next time I am going to try and find some large bendable pipe cleaners. Overall I am pleased with the results the hairstyle is mega cute!

I love your hair! Although I do not have locs (just a natural fro), I think you are an inspiration to show the versatility and beauty that can be had in our hair with patience, care, love, and most important, respect.
