Cocoons, Gatsby & Pink

Heat free styles are great for natural hair and since I love big hair, I'd really liked the results I'd seen on some tutorials for cocoon curls and thought I'd give it a try.
I used the technique for date night and we went to see The Great Gatsby.  I re-read the book and was really pumped to see it.  And I liked it.  It felt too long, but I don't know what I would have cut out (they did basically trim out Nick and Jordan's relationship), so maybe I just had to pee really bad after two hours.  The cinematography was dazzling, the costumes and hair were on point, the acting was not too shabby!

I actually like the results better with the cocoon curls a couple days later after some of the product I'd used had kind of been brushed out and worn off, however, they basically fell out by 3pm.  I'll keep experimenting!
