My twists unraveled halfway, by the time I got back to base...so I unraveled the rest of the way. Put some hair pudding on it and just rubbed it thru...no comb or brush. Looks cute....moisturized....then I noticed....hanging lower than normal shrinkage allows, so I pulled it up... here's a length check. Unstraitened...6 inches. Which means it will be 9 or10 inches if I flat iron it. I am way tempted to flat iron it now...but its supposed to rain all week. The halo braid is still in tact. Will decide what I'm doing to the crown later.
