Maintaining & Getting Spiral Curls With Marley Crochet Braids

I changed my curl pattern 2 weeks ago and I have been getting questions non-stop about how I did it! 

Well, I went swimming a few weeks ago...............in the ocean, lol so you know I needed to wash my hair. Honestly, my hair came out just fine, with the braid out pattern and everything afterwards which was nice but it was dirty so I figured I'd clean it.....hence video #1 below. I also showed what I do to pamper my hair under the marley hair twice each week.

I figured, I already went through the stress of washing and detangling the hair, so why not try a new look after it all instead of doing the braid out that I did the first time. So I enlisted some perm rods. A few people told me that they've tried the perm rods and still couldn't get the spiral pattern..............you HAVE TO curl from the top and not the bottom and hold the hair in the water long enough. The video below shows you how.

Below are some progress shots of my hair 1 day, 1 week and 2 weeks later.......no recurling necessary!!! All I did was turn my head upside down and tie a satin scarf when going to bed.......when I remembered lol. Some nights I just slept on the hair. Not using the satin scarf causes your hair to lose some shine and frizz a bit but I actually like that because I think it makes it look more natural. Some say a satin cap works, but I've never successfully slept then wake up with a satin cap still on my head so I opted for a scarf which is a little more secure.
