Hair pictures and more!

I never liked wearing my hair in just two strand twists. I just didn’t think it looked good on me and it made me sad because I wanted to wear my hair in this protective style for at least a week before doing a twist out. My scalp is another issue and another post because it has actually been behaving itself.

Last night, my hair felt a little dry, but my scalp was really, really clean. Like clean that I haven’t seen in a long, long time. So, why waste shampoo? I decided to co-wash. I know, I know, co-washing and I didn’t mix, but the problem wasn’t the co-washing — it was my scalp. That’s another post. Anyhow, I detangled with Sunsilk Captivating Curls conditioner and my Tangle Teezer. I added Head & Shoulders Classic Clean conditioner and washed my scalp. I don’t know about anyone else’s scalp, but my scalp said, “thank you, ma’am!”

After that, I tried my newest hair purchase: Silk Elements Megasilk Olive Moisturizing Treatment. I was at Sally’s Beauty Supply on Sunday. I had heard about Silk Elements products and I really wanted to try them. So I picked up the treatment because, really, my deep conditioner game isn’t on point. Anyhow, I added that and ran through my hair with the Tangle Teezer — it was like BUTTER.

Since I finished up early, I decided to load up Days of our Lives on my iPad and get to twisting. I decided to do some smaller twists — not mini twists, but definitely smaller than what I’m accustomed to doing. I mixed up my modified Kimmaytube leave-in (Giovanni Direct Leave-in conditioner, olive oil, castor oil and aloe vera juice) and got to twisting.

Before I finished, I liked my hair. Something about the way it fell, it looked good! It had movement and you could see the length. I think my issue with my twists before was that my hair didn’t have enough length and, to me, it didn’t look right. Now that my hair is growing and I’m seeing the length, I really like how it looks. And how it felt. For a couple of weeks, my laziness took over and I didn’t make the Kimmaytube leave-in. Well, I can definitely tell the difference between when I use it and when I don’t. Here are some pictures:

I tried to add my watermark, but the application is playing the fool. So, here it is - don't tief me tings.

 

Here's the back! It's a bit fuzzy in the middle, but I still like it.

This combination seemed to work! I’m going to try to work these twists for the week and then wear a twist out next week… if the scalp holds up. What combination have you found that works on your hair and gives you the look and feel you want?

    That’s nice! As my hair grew, I became too lazy to do the twists the size of yours, but I’m inspired. Anyway, I like to use Carol’s Daughter Kizzi Stay Put when I have smaller twists I want to leave in. For twist outs I use a little CD healthy hair butter and CD Loc butter. I find that the Loc butter is also good moisturizer.
