I don’t gel my 4b/4c edges down because they don’t stay down, and I’m not going to force my hair to do something that it doesn’t want to. I think they’re beautiful the way they are..Creating my own standard of beauty. I plan on wearing my hair big and curly a lot more. I just feel more like myself.. I can’t really describe it.

How I wore my natural hair earlier that morning the day I took the photo with my hair curly. These were third day water waves I did on my natural hair with some mini braids in the front, but I wanted some wand curls instead. I shouldn’t have done that though, because the water waves can last me up to 2 weeks without any heavy manipulation, which means more length retention… but… I just wanted wand curls 🤗
