Simple Twists on Damp Hair (September 2014 Edition)

Loose Natural Hair Post Style Removal

I removed Z's previous hairstyle in prep for styling her hair tomorrow in twists but could not help to be amazed at how much hair she has.

And this set took 5.5 hours. SMH.

I did not really have a particular style in mind so I kind of freestyle this one into two twisted buns.

Her hair was nicely stretched and moisturized from the banding technique.

Here's the final result:
