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
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! *****
I hate sleeping with Bantu Knots in my head. Can’t wait to take these suckers down.
I trimmed my own hair this time. Wasn’t looking for perfection.
Fo today’s style I’m going for a krinkle look or tight wave. I decided to use the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to set my braids and knots. Since I don’t have all day to let it set I blow dried my knots on low heat. I’ll leave these in until it’s time for me to head out. Baby shower is at 1p and it’s 9a now. I really hope this style works this time.
Pin Curl Fail
I saw a video on how to do no heat curls by using the pin curl technique. Jasper helped me pick a simple light gel to use for this process. After I pinned my hair around my head I double tied it with two silk wraps and went to bed.
10 minutes before work I let my locs loose and No curl formed… None. It all fell flat like nothing happened. So while I’m at work I’m going to try another method. I’ll braid or twist my hair in 10 plats with a bantu knot finish & Leave it until it’s time to go to the baby shower @ 1.
Wish me luck, Round two.
If you have any tips, msg me.
Frizz. Lack of control
So after my flat ironing session I noticed for the last two days the mid part of my hair is proofing up. I used Got2B Guardian Angel heat protectant to see if it would help… Not much. The top and lower part of my hair is slick and smooth. I don’t know what else to do. I don’t want to add more oil bc its been a little humid in Austin. I would expect my whole head to be a fro not just one area.
Do you have any tips?
Throwback hair journey
This stage in my hair journey I was coming from a big chop & perm to transitioning into locs. Then after 6years of it being locked up I decided to change it up again and comb them out!
My sister Zina has come a long way from her big chop to sister locs! It’s looking good too!
