My best friends wedding & roller set woes...

Hi all!
Yes, yes I know. I've been dropping the ball when it comes to my blog! My apologies!!!! Things have been so hectic lately! Work, school, participating in my BFF's wedding and other things. But I promise *scouts honor* to do better when it comes to posting. I will try to post at least once a week and keep you guys updated on my hair, products and anything that's changed.
So this past weekend I was In my best friend India's wedding. It was a wonderful wedding to say the least, and she made a beautiful bride! Now, as far as Janice (my fro) goes, I decided to wear a roller set for the wedding. I did this because: #1 I've never tried this style before, and #2 I needed a low maintenance style due to the weather we were expecting that weekend. (Rain, humidity, wetness. All bad for natural hair styles :-/ ). I went to a best cuts salon, in Cleveland. I went there because since I've been natural I don't have a beautician to see and I THOUGHT it would take a short period of time to get in and get out. Well I was WRONG. I waited 2 hours before I even sat in the chair and it took about 1 and 1/2 hrs to complete the set and get me under the dryer. * I reminded myself once again why I went natural, and why I hate salons* moving on...
The roller set came out ok. It wasn't what I expected, but then again, I'm not really sure what I I have fluffy, coily, curly type 4 hair that's shrinks to the heavens when wet. So when the roller set was done I had MAJOR shrinkage. It held up pretty well that day and the next day, which was the actual day of the wedding. I did get a lot of compliments on it, which was surprising because after a while I felt like it was frizzy and limp. Next time I decide to do a roller set, (if and when I do), I will definitely be doing my own at home and not going to the salon EVER again! Not sure what products the beautician used. But I'll post some pics below!
