Straw Set on Natural Hair | YouTube Natural Hair Tutorial

It’s been a few years since I’ve done a straw set on my natural hair. Now that my hair is longer, I wanted to see how the style would look, in comparison to when I did it back in 2012.

In this YouTube video tutorial, I decided to use SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Frizz-Free Mousse instead of my usual go-to setting lotion styler of choice.

Overall, I’m happy with how it turned out. It was nice to change it up a little bit, product-wise.  Using the mousse didn’t leave my hair crunchy but instead, gave me a soft hold.  If you’re looking for a stronger hold, you may want to consider using a 50/50 mix of setting lotion and water.  I say definitely try this out so you can compare the results on your own hair.  For me,  I like how my hair looks when the straw curls have more of a tighter hold, and gradually fall and fluff out the longer I keep the style in.
