I’m Twisted Up

 Hey y’all!

I swear my hair has been giving me fits lately; detangling takes forever and I’ve gotten a little tired of the bun. Now I will admit that I have been too lazy busy to do anything extra either. But I sucked it up Saturday night, washed my hair, cried while detangling (not really, but I wanted to) and committed to twisting my hair. All I can say is “these twist have been a life saver!”

Before

Hair in left in comb after detangling. Keep in mind I only comb/detangle when I wash & condition my hair.

Finished product.

Twist styled the following day.

Twist up close.

Twist stretched.

To achieve this style I washed my hair as normal concentrating mainly on my scalp area and then conditioned my hair using a mixture of leftover conditioners plus sunflower seed oil. I used an old t-shirt to towel blot dry my hair, then I applied my leave-in conditioner and finally coconut oil. I allowed my hair to air dry for a few hours and twisted my hair using Miss Jessie’s Curly Buttercreme.

Products used.

I love this stuff…works great when I twist my hair!

It took about an hour and a half to twist my hair, which isn’t that bad especially if you pop in a good movie to watch. I prefer to do the twist on dry (or almost dry) hair because I get a little more length and it’s more manageable. And the Miss Jessie’s Curly Buttercreme gives me the right amount of hair and tons of shine. I will probably rock my hair like this for a while, it’s been super convenient, I love it!

How have you been rocking your hair lately?

      Thanks so much! And I was thinking that I was going bald too but I had to remember that since I only comb my hair once a week (sometimes longer) that having that much hair is normal…lol

    It looks good. I am planning on twisting also b/c I am tired of doing my hair. How long will the style last?

      Thanks Tralanina! I usually only wear them about a 1-1.5 weeks, after that my hair gets frizzy and starts to look a mess. But not having to really style my hair for a week is great for me.
