Quick twist, 1hr Cantu Shea conditioner/leave in
Soni decided to finally try it out. Looks amazing, I’m so jelly. Collage shows the last time she flat ironed it back in Aug. Hair is growing great!
I finally rocked my big curls!
I used shea moisture gel and smoothie to set my twist. On the second day I wrapped them to stretch them out. Day three, today, twisted out made to perfection! Loving it yall
She’s been working on it slowly. I love her curls. I believe she has a 4b or even 4c hair pattern.
Soni has been nervous about this transition. Having to relearn how to work with her natural hair and giving it love. I completely understand her fear bc during my loc transition I was nervous as Fuck but look where I’m at now! Loving my curls, finally finding the right products that work, failing and being proud of MY hair. I’m excited to be apart of her hair journey.
End of the day….
Well, my twist out didn’t last all day. The humidity in Austin was cray. Oh well, enjoyed it while it lasted. This may be more of a winter style.
TWIST Out 2.0
I did two strand twists on 2 week old flat ironed hair. Used the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie & Flax Gel along with Eco Styling Gel hold 10. I put just enough to keep my hair from reverting to my curls.
Next I ser several bantu Knots around my head, wrapped it up with a satin scarf and let it set for 24hs. (I called in sick)
Here are my results. I got a lot of complements from coworkers and friends via FB. I would say this gets 5 stars! *****
