As I stated in an earlier post, I have been really boring with my hair lately. I've mostly worn twists all summer. The upside to that is that my hair is growing like wildfire!! The protectiveness of twists and moisturizing daily has really given my hair a boost! Today I treated myself to a blow-out (blow-dried my hair), and then twisted it up. What I did:
I washed, conditioned, and detangled my hair yesterday. I used SheaMoisture Sheabutter Leave-in conditioner (the original kind...found on amazon) to twist up my hair in medium twists. I wore them all night and all day today so they could dry. I took down one twist at a time, added some grapeseed oil (great natural heat protectant), and blew dry that section and twisted it back up. I did this for my entire head and was left with big chunky twists:
I know they dont look much smaller from the front. But the ones in the back are half the size. I then experimented a little....updo
Or you could stick with an easy, breezy ponytail:
For my nighttime routine, I took them out of the ponytail and slipped on a satin headwrap. And thats it! Let me know what you've been doing with your natural hair!!
