Straight Hair Styles ???

Hey y'll,
I'm sorry I've been lazy to put up posts :(..So I wore my hair in its pressed state for about a week as I  had to start my Protective  style hair challenge at the beginning of this month
On day 3 after straightening the hair was flat and hard to style  so I bunned it..and added  an extension. Later that night  I decided to do Bantu knots to get some waves and curls..I used Shea Moisture Curl enhancing smoothie and some Grapeseed oil to do the knots and secured them with pins..The next day I had some really nice curls..I redid the knots at night with just the Grape seed oil..

Braided extension  pinned to pony tail

Protective style Challenge begins

Hey all
So I put in Marley twists by Free Tress as my 1st protective style. I bought them from Blush at Apic Centre in Westlands for 1100/- a pack..I used 2 1/2 pkts..I didn't want a lot of braids on my hair..I like the braid texture it is kinky but not coarse like the local ones and so I feel they will not be rough on my hair..
To prepare my hair I applied a Bentonite clay mask on my hair for 20 mins which I rinsed off. I got the clay from Healthy U at 250/- and I mixed it with Apple Cider Vinegar to make a paste. I then Dc'ed with natural yogurt,egg,olive oil and honey. I left this on for about 2 hours then I washed it out and applied Tresemme Naturals conditioner and went under the dryer for 15 hair was so soft and felt amazeballs :)
I then applied my leave in (Giovanni Direct leave in) JBCO and my Shea mix and flat twisted my hair and went to bed. The next day I pulled my hair into a high bun and used a pony extension to stretch the hair in preparation for braiding.
While in the braids:-
I plan to massage JBCO at least 3 times a week into my scalp
I will spritz hair with water, flaxseed gel and tea tree oil combo
I will seal moisture with Baobab oil
I will clean scalp with Sea Breeze astringent when necessary
