Last night I fancied doing some protective styling for once so i did some mini twists. First I Deep conditioned with Curls Curl Ecstasy Hair Tea Deep Conditioner (which I will do a review on later). Then I added a spritz I made containing water, Coconut oil, Castor oil and a few drops of Rosemary Oil.
After this I started doing the twists. I don’t separate my hair into large sections because I experience a large amount of shrinkage especially in the front half of my hair which has a much tighter curl than the back. Before twisting each part I added a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) mixed creamy with unrefined shea butter. I love using those two together because they make my Hair feel soft as well as giving it a bit of shine. One thing I have to make sure I do though is fully melt the shea butter otherwise I get yellow bits in my hair.
Since i’m getting kinky twists next week, i’m planning to keep these twists in till wednesday night, rock a twist out/twist out afro for two days and then DC on friday night before i get the twists in. I’ll post pictures of the twist out next week and hopefully sincve my hair will be stretched, i’ll be able to do my first length check since my BC in April. This would be about 6 months fully natural for me. Yay!! I can’t wait!!
