    looking for long hairville :-)
    This is going to be my summer go to style...very nice & cool! Mini twist curled & bobby pinned. The last pic I pinned the front up to change the style a little!
    I will try this with micro braids too! :yep:

    I have HIH disease and am always checking my new growth to see if its dry & also Im pretty sloppy at styling so my style needs to be redone the next day. I guess PSing would be more beneficial if I can stay out of my hair for at least 2 or three days, huh? I just feel the need to moisturize and seal daily...my hair gets dry and brittle fast!

    Anyway here are my current protective styles. Im not that creative or talented, just buns or random pinups.

    That is a really neat braid/bun and I believe a great way to set the edges/hairline. When people have trouble in that area I've seen this type of styling assist in their hairline growing back nicely. Great job!^^

    This looks great!!! I need to learn how to do this to the front of my hair because the fuzzy halo and thin edges would look so much better while growing :yep:

    Sorry so late responding - I'm in the middle of a LHCF haitus :yep:

    That style's really cute, but I'm in my mid-40s and it's too young for me :giggle:
    I'll try it on DD#3 when I flatiron her next month. I'll be sure to post pics.

    Lately, I've been twisting my hair (in about 15 to 20 twists) and pulling them back in a bun. When I do this style, I wear it for a week at a time (love that, and talk about saving me some time, whew). I absolutely love it, and I get a lot of compliments on it. Some folks have the nerve to think I get up and re-do it every day. NOT. :lol: I think this is gonna be one of my main styles this summer and fall because I'm not getting my hair flat ironed until Christmas. :yay:

    wherever I see them. Rainbow, Forever21, Teenie Bopper stores like that. I got a nice navy blue one from Ross once. Just whenever I see them I pick them up. Because they tend to sell fast in the winter curlsOnFire

    As you know I love sticks but I think forks are a little easier to use -especially for shorter har. I have a new one that is super smooth and very easy to use. It's from PacificMerchatile
