Thank you so much for sticking with me throughout this challenge. I began in September and I’m now in the 4th month of my journey. Which means I have a new style with new hair. It’s called Urban Soft Dread and it is absolutely amazing!
During my search on Instagram for a new style, I saw the #SoftDread hashtag. I was amazed at how perfect and defined the curls were, I decided to try it for myself. Although this hair is slowly gaining attention in the Atlanta area, I was happy to find it in my local beauty supply store. I was even happier to find that the hair was a few dollars cheaper than what I had been previously paying for other styles. For my current style, I used 3 packs of hair (cut in half) and each pack cost $5.99.
I used 2 packs of the color 1B and 1 pack of 1B/30(in the front). Initially, I did not separate the curls as I didn’t want to take the chance with frizz or losing my large curls just yet. However, I noticed it was harder to hide my braids in the back of my head since my hair wasn’t as full. So after just a few days, I decided to unravel the curls. And I LOVE it! My hair is so big/full and all I have to do is shake my hair and go in the mornings. MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT PROTECTIVE STYLES.
It’s been a full week since installing my hair and so far, so good. No problems with frizz whatsoever. The hair is holding up extremely well and I haven’t had to cut any pieces yet. Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think :-).
