One particular problem I had with baggying, is that my hair, like many naturals, has many different textures and curl patterns. In the back of my head my hair is tightly coiled, thick, easy to detangle, however the ends are prone to dryness. The curls on crown and sides of my hair are looser, easier to moisturize, however prone to tangling. This part of my hair typically is a bit limp and breaks easily after baggying. On the contrary, the back of my head is soft, shiny and healthier after baggying. Thus to counter this problem, I came up with the solution of customized baggying.
Here's how I do it:
- I moisturize all of my hair with olive oil.
- On the puff in the back of my hair, I add a little conditioner.
- I cover my puff in plastic by wrapping a shower cap around it and holding it in place with a hair elastic.
- I then put a satin scarf on my head.
