I actually learned how to wrap a while ago, but I still find myself watching this vid as a guide until wrapping comes naturally to me. It is the most helpful technique I've seen on youtube. My hair is currently flat ironed and wrapping has been a great way to preserve my straight styles.
I read that wrapping can cause thinning on one side, but honestly I'm not too concerned because I rarely wear my hair out (and therefore rarely wrap). But I'll still keep an eye out for an adverse effects.
Speaking of hair, I flat ironed my hair on Sunday night. I must say I'm really enjoying wearing my hair straight. Here are some pics I took today (as requested):
1. apply a little serum/pomade (only if needed...I didn't use any tonight because my hair was already a little weighed down).
2. Wrap like in the video
3. tie a satin scarf
that's it. This is just as simple as protective styling with halfwigs. I'm planning to wear my hair straight for the rest of the week.
