Caramel Cutie's Blow Out!!! :)

Pin It
Hey all,

So today, I planned on flat ironing CC's hair and giving her a length check.  I was excited about it, but totally NOT as excited as CC!! She was STOKED to see her hair length and have that special time with just MOMMY to talk and just enjoy each other, while getting her hair done...

Soooooo... First, she washed and conditioned her hair and sectioned it off (she added a bit more conditioner in her hair to section it off and soften it a bit... GREAT TIP, folks).  I then got to blow drying it...

What I used:

Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Nourishing Sheen Spray
White Rain Natural Conditioner -- Apple Blossom

Oh... It worked so well!! :)
CC sectioned her hair into REALLY big sections, so I made them a bit smaller before blow drying them in order to get it completely dry by using the LEAST amount of heat possible...

Started with the back...I put some White Rain on it first (about a quarter sized amount, and then sprayed on the oil sheen and got to blow drying!! --  SHRINKAGE?!?!? I think so...

How's that for SHRINKAGE?!?!?! HAHA!! WOW!
I then did the same thing throughout her entire head!!!

Finished product of the blow out:

:) Look at that baby!! All that goodness!!!

Yep... She's rockin' rough and stuff with it! :) Just like her MOMMY!!!
I then plug up the flat iron and get ready to flat iron... AND THEN... My lovely Butterscotch Beauty bumps it and BREAKS IT!! :-/ *sigh* -- ARGH!!! CC was angry... BB was apologetic, and I was a bit peeved...

Soooooooooooo... CC decided to do a quick style for school tomorrow... Even in her anger, she rocked it out:

She's happy with the results... I am too!!!

Look at all that kinky goodness!!!

LOOK AT THAT PUFF!!!! :)

WHOOP WHOOP!!!
In the end, it all worked out.  I'm kinda happy she didn't get it completely straightened, because I'm a fan of her kinks... She also stated that she is happy as well, because she loves the thickness of the puff and how easy it was to get her hair in that ponytail... SO... It's a win/win!! :)

See?? Even with the mishap, it all worked out!!! That's what being NATURAL is all about... Making it work even if it seems as though your plans are warped!!! BEING NATURAL ROCKS!!!!

My Beautiful Caramel Cutie!

Love how quick and willing she was able to adjust. Man, that was sooooome shrinkage.

Charlotte said...

Upside Productions * Thanks... Me too, sis!! I'm happy she was able to just move on... Even in her 'quiet anger'... She got over it and switched it up, coming up with a very cute style!! And that shrinkage?!?!? RIGHT!?!? My goodness!! :)

Thanks for commenting,

Love the results! Gorgeous hair!!

Diva Locks said...

nice style, nice puff, that sucks about the flat iron :( I was so looking forward to the results, oh well next time.

Nikki said...

Oh wow...that's all I got! The shrinkage, the ability to overcome an obstacle, the puff...

Nicole said...

Wow! The twists are doing wonders. If that isn't a secret I don't know what is. I read hair grows an average of 6 inches in a year. Then I read yesterday where a girl said her hair grew five inches in 6 months. "FAST" growth is possible. I'm still in ah looking at her hair.

Charlotte said...

Precious * Thank you!! She says, "Thank you, Miss Precious!"

Charlotte said...

Diva Locks * Yeah... It was a bummer... I have another flat iron, but it's NOWHERE near as good as the one BB broke... Whomp Whomp!! Thank you though!!

Charlotte said...

Nikki * Right??? She's a trooper!! That's my girl!! :) Thanks!

Charlotte said...

Nicole * RIGHT?!?!? Twists are the best!!! A nice, moisturized twist!! It's the greatest!!! I'm proud of her... She's yet holding on!! With a smile on her face! <3

Her hair has grown so much!!! I'm stoked!

Yes... hair grows @ approx. 6 inches per year, but some grows slower, others faster... Just depends on the person... I'm at BSL now... Trying to get to waist length by this time next year... We shall see!! :)

She is beautiful. Her shrinkage is a sight to be seen, bet no one knew her hair was that long. Love the puff in the end. Love the smile the most because she overcame her disappointment.

Charlotte said...

Michelle G * Thank you!! Yes ma'am... her shrinkage is something new to most... HAHA!! Over here, we have shrinkage for your behind! :) -- But, we're used to it. :) -- And yes... She definitely overcame her disappointment (Thank GOD)!! I'm proud of her! :)

Shay said...

Charlotte said...

Shay * Thank you, mami!! She was definitely a good sport about it... As she shot angry looks at her sister!! HAHA! :) -- I'm truly glad she got over it and made it work for her! :)

Gottah Love Shrinkage. Her hair is so long! WOW! I know you are proud to see your wonderful hard work pay off. ;-)

Charlotte said...

KeeKeeAllNatural * Okay?!?! Shrinkage is a deceiving little bugger! :) -- And yes ma'am!!! I'm so happy to see my hard work (AND HERS) pay off!!! So glad she is listening to what I say in regards to her hair and the length speaks for itself! :~D

Goldilocks*n*Me said...

Ok, I probably would have had a panic attack if I planned on a flat iron then broke my iron! So she taught me a thing or two about keeping your cool and adjusting, and about what a blessing it is to have such versatility in our hair!

Charlotte said...

Goldilocks*n*Me * Right?!?! I would have been really upset as well!! She taught me a few things as well!! I'm truly proud of her!! :) <3

I love her puff and mishaps sometimes are a good thing..I'm glad she liked it and as someone who got her hair pressed every two weeks as a child..Tell her it's not all it's cracked up to be..LOL

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Shautel * Indeed... It was definitely a good thing. I love how she just bounced back and wasn't too upset about it!! :)
