I Love Twist-Outs!

Ok so "wash n go's" are still my favorite, but "twists/twistouts" are a close runner up! To do this style, I washed my hair and then applied my GVP Paul Mitchell-The Conditioner throughout my hair. I then sectioned off my hair and applied Eco Styler gel (Olive oil kind) to a small section, brushed it through with my Denman brush, and twisted until I reached the ends. I then twirled the ends around my finger (this keeps the twists from unraveling). I do this to the entire head, and then let it air dry. I wear them for a about a week, and then gently untwist them...and voila...a "twist out!"

Fye product review!

Hello peeps! I just finished deep conditioning and two strand twisting my hair. I used a new product for my deep conditioning today. It's called Jessicurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment and my oh my...I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!! I shampood then applied the Jessicurl throughout my hair. I then put on a shower cap and a heated towel. I left this on for an hour. I then detangled (the tangles literally fell apart on their own) and then rinsed my hair with cool water. This is definitely going to be one of my staple hair products! or is where you can purchase if you want to give it a try.

On anther note...the website is coming along nicely. It should launch by next week! Yay!!! Peace and blessings yall! :-)
