Wrap-A-Loc Results...




OK...So Monday morning I took down the Wrap-A-Loc set. Here's the results. They are very tight. After work Monday, I put them in a cap while I was at exercise class. They were just as tightly coiled on Tuesday.

I think the set was successful because I sat under the dryer. I used a little diluted Lottabody. But I was not very consistent about applying it. I probably didn't put any on the back.
If it weren't for the heat of the dryer, my hair wouldn't have dried uniformly...and certainly not in time for me to go to sleep at a decent hour. So once again, I love my new hair dryer.
We can track how long the curls last together, ok?

Today--because I was too lame to actually wear a costume--I stuffed my hair in a knit hat and wore lots of make-up....Spooky. I told anyone who asked I was a smooth criminal.

Really I just wanted an excuse to try blacking my eyes out. I have all these MAC paints that I never use and eyeshadow colors that I never really experiment with...So today I did. I used Fluidline liner in black, Carbon and Tuxedo shadow with a thin dusting of Vellum over the top. It was fun. If I was still in high school, I might totally go Goth for awhile...But I'm not in high school. So really, it's just about time for me to wash my face.

Makeup is such fun!

So, which do you like better, WaL or SS? They are both great looks, but I think I prefer the SS. How would you rate them, effort-wise?

Sweet! All that effort and time paid off. And those curls should last you quite a bit too. Please post pics of when you take them down (is that correct?, lol). I can imagine how curly your hair will be then.

Wow, I didn't realize how long your hair has gotten. Cool makeup also, I love to do a black smoky eye, but I have actually used an inexpensive Maybelline black eye shadow, a MAC liquid black eyeliner, and Maybelline black mascara. The look lasts all night, and I love the drama. Your eyes look fab, and the WaL is pretty too!

The more and more I see styles with the WaL tool the more I want to order it. The SS style looks nice as well.

You just have the best length for the styles too....

I have natural hair, not locs, and I wet-set my hair on curlers with Lottabody and sat under the hair dryer last week. I have to say, I did a great job! My hair was sufficiently straightened enough yet held curl, I didnt feel the need to also use a curling iron. Im defenitely doing this again!
