    Apparently there's a book out. Might be nice to order!

    I know about the book, but I can't see spending the money right now. It looks amazing though. Maybe after I get a new job... 20 bucks ain't bad, and it looks like a lot of fun.

    I did it again! And took pictures this time!

    This is before, hair brushed out:

    And hair full of lard:

    Powdered hair loose:

    Braided and pancaked to the extreme, since I wanted to play with the volume and hold this stuff gives compared to my fine, slippery normal hair. It's a bit messy, but I love how massive it is:

    I haven't done any updos yet, but I'm planning to keep this stuff in for at least three days and doing several things with it. Just haven't decided what. Maybe something based off the coiffure banane that Loepsie did a few weeks ago.

    Please let me know whether the pictures work; it's my first time doing them.

    I converted them to URLs and that seems to work!

    You have gorgeous hair

    TBH...I am glad we are not in that time.....looking at the video...the curling wand, teasing (ouch), grease and powder (yuck)....

    They must have kept that style in for a week ...or 2...or a month

    It has me scratching my scalp and thinking about a shampoo

    Pretty to look at though

    Thanks Lapushka! Do you know what I did wrong the first time? I used the 'Insert Image' button on the reply box.

    You didn't copy the image URL but the page URL. You need to paste the image URL. Copy it by right-clicking the photo and choosing to copy its URL.

    Why put your hair through that amount of stress and manipulation?
    Oh man, I was fine with this video until the backcombing started... But from then on it was like watching a horror movie WHY WOULD YOU DO THAAAAAT??

    Wow Brethil you have amazing hair! I actually think it looks really cool powdered, sort of tribal somehow?? Just, please don't backcomb like in the video, you'll give me nightmares!
