I started off by moisturizing my hair in sections. I spritzed each section with water (water=moisture), focusing on the ends. I then applied coconut oil (this is an excellent moisturizer and from what I've read, one of the few oils that can actually penetrate the hair shaft), finger-combing as I went. I sealed my ends with EVOO.

|The new sock bun thingy I made today is on the left.|
(Read my post "Quick Bun" to see tutorial.)
It's bigger & has nylon on the outside to protect my hair.
I also rubbed some olive oil on it for added moisture.
|In case you were wondering...|
I have a LOT of hair! LOL!
|One of my trusty hair ties made of nylons. Gentle on my|
hair and very stretchy. I put my hair in a ponytail with this.
|Put the sock donut thingy around my ponytail.|
|Find the center of my hair, take another|
ponytail holder and put it over my hair so it's
covering the sock bun thingy.
|Twist & tuck my hair around the bun,|
securing it with bobby pins.
|Spritz the rest of my hair with water, slap on|
some gel and smooth it down with my hands
(I do not use brushes as they can cause damage).
|Cover with a scarf for 20-30 minutes to smooth|
it down some more. Makes it look sleek
sans the damage caused by a brush.
(My ear was still red from the scarf, lol.)
