Straw Setts

On Saturday, my sister surprised me with the most amazing treat. One of those surprises that goes like “be ready by 10a.m we are going somewhere”. Initially I thought we are taking my nephew to the hospital for vaccination but later realized we were not leaving with my nephew.

It is not until we got to Bella Beauty Parlor that I knew what the plan was. I was introduced to Dennis the hairstylist, who is an expert of natural hair. This was my first time, I didn’t have a particular style that I wanted. So Dennis directed me to his Facebook, looked at a couple pictures of his work then settled on Straw Setts. Here’s how the whole process went down…

While Dennis was doing my hair we had small talk, more about him enlightening me on natural hair. I realized that I have been using the wrong conditioner, I ought to have been using Tresemmé Natural with a green leaf mark, not just any Tresemmé. He also pointed out that when buying hair products I should check the ingredients and that I should avoid products with Silicone as an ingredient.

Faced one of my fears, going under a dryer. It was all hot and just weird. My fellow Snapchatters must have seen the kinda crazy moments I had with the dryer.

In the middle of my hair surprise treat, my sister surprised me again with a Manicure treat. Not the kind I’m used to, the kind that involves gel and my fingers put into a small bright machine that I still don’t know it’s name (don’t mind my ignorance). Anyways it was all amazing, it felt great and I loved it. The joy of having a big sister 🙌:):) (story of my life). #Awesome.

Note: No relaxers and chemicals were included in the setting process. Water, curling cream and leave-in conditioner were the items used to set my hair. Oooh and straws too as seen in the pictures.

Tip: If you’ll be setting your hair on your own and you don’t have a dryer near you, you can let the locks, twists, Bantu knots and braid for 12hours basically overnight for defined curls.
Also don’t forget to oil and moisturize your hair.
