Different Natural HairstylesSo, I haven't posted about Dilemma Tuesday for 3 weeks because I wanted to surprise my boyfriend. The surprise went very well, so now I'll show it to you!
I decided to try a roller set. Surprisingly, the look held up really well. It looked more like a straight style than a natural style, but I loved it just the same.

I loved this style and will definitely get it again. In order to keep the style, I pin curled it each night and secured it with bobby pins. The downside was this took 20+ minutes to do...and there was a many a night when I didn't feel like doing it! But I did and it lasted the whole two weeks!!
I also didn't moisturize my scalp like I wanted to for fear of messing up the curls. My stylist suggested I start using a q-tip to apply coconut oil because I was using too much. She also gave me a lighter oil to try to combat all the issues I was having with the coconut oil. The oil is Influance's It's Natural, Natural Oil...yeah, the name cracks me up too...lol! This oil is made by the same company that makes the moisturizer I got from the salon, which I love, so I'm hoping to love the oil too.
I told her about all the itching I was still having as well. She gave me some type of treatment (I believe a tea tree oil treatment) to help relieve the itching. I need to ask what it is, so I can share that with you. She also told me my scalp was in great condition and thought it may just be my nerves, which I can totally get behind (because in the past, I've noticed that I scratch my head when I'm nervous, stressed, upset, etc.). With everything I've been doing, I think the stress of it all is starting to catch up with me.
During the most current Dilemma Tuesday I decided to get a protective style. After having spent so much time having to set my hair every single night for two weeks, I went into the salon already knowing what I wanted! Hand claps for me, right?! Here's how it turned out:
Which do you like between the roller set and french braids??
