ADVICE FOR 4A 2 ACHIEVE EVA PIGFORD HAIR

Velvetmug22Velvetmug22 Registered Users Posts: 409
Hello Everyone,

My girlfriend has 4A hair texture that she has worn in braids, weaves, and maintained with relaxers/perms. She wants to wear her own hair, but in the Eva Pigford hair style from America's Next Top Model. Can you give me any ideas on how she can achieve this? I realize a texturizer will be involved. Do any one you have any suggestions on which ones to use? And what are the pros and cons of this chemical process? I've linked a picture of what i'm talking about :

    depending upon how small her curls are... a texturizer may not be enough. she may also need to rollerset.

    Eva pigford's hair looks like it's mostly 3a, with a little 3b, that she sometimes brushes or wears straight to change her look, but if you have very tight ringlets or coils, I would say try a roller set with rods the size of the curls you think hers are before doing something like relaxing your hair with a texturizer.

    Her hair isn't long enough for a roller set. We tried that and it didn't come out well :oops: :lol:

    have you tried bantu knotting it with a pomade/gel?

    No, she hasn't. I'll check that out, but I know she wants something with permenant results that she doesn't have to put alot of effort into.

    Well this method is not that arduous, but it's definitely not permanent; it washes out like any other set. The only way for someone with the curls you describe to permanently achieve curls that loose would be a double process; chemically straightened and then curly permed. I doubt a texturizer could loosen her curls enough without straightening it.
