I wanna take my hair down already and it’s only been a week
I wanna wash it and stuff.
Me tooo. I can't wait for the weekend.....
I set out to install medium twists, but ended up with mini twists. My goal is to keep them in for three weeks.
Took my twists down and rocking a twist out......until wash day tomorrow.
I haven’t tried this on my own hair yet, but the last time I did twists on my daughter’s hair, I blow-dried her hair first. Twists on her air-dried hair don’t come out any better than on just washed/damp hair, but on the blow-dried hair, they were amazing - they lasted two weeks and had minimal shrinkage, and kept that “ropey” look the whole time instead of shriveling up and looking scraggly. (I could have left them in longer, but she has scalp issues.)
ETA: I used oil and Shea butter with only a little gel along the edges.
I have washed/hennaed/conditioned so far. I am letting my braids air dry. Not sure if I am going to mini-twist or wear a bun for a week.
Wash day is today. I’m at the steaming point. Will rinse out. Add my leave in. Depending on how my hair feels I might style my hair today.
If not , I’ll dry overnight and twist tomorrow.
Ahhh relief.. I’m prepooing with aloe and oil. I haven’t even washed yet, and my scalp feels like heaven
I’ve never used aloe before , I enjoyed it
I’ll wash later and just style in a bun for a week. I don’t feel like twisting hair this weekend
have a great weekend ladies
This is my PS for the month of February..The other style last an entire month,hope this style does also...
Happy Hair Growing!
I’m thinking about a bun myself. I have to stretch my hair in twists first though @guyaneseyankee
1. What is your primary style (twists, braids, bunning, etc.)?
2. What is your style maintenance regimen?
Prepoo, shampoo, protein, deep conditioner, leave-In’s, twist every two weeks.
3. Are you natural, relaxed, transitioning?
4. What do you hope to achieve from the challenge?
I was trim heavy last year. Hope to gain some more inches this year.
5. How often will you restyle your hair?
every two weeks
6. Include Starting Pic.
I was going to take my twists down to bun but I was running late this morning so they are still up. Depending on how it goes I might just stick it out with these twists even though they look rough, lol.
It's your technique. Watch some videos as suggested. It's not the products
Took my twists down and stretched it into a bun.
I retwisted the front and put on my bonnet. Let’s see how this holds up the rest of the week.
I might be out of this challenge for a few weeks in March. Im going out of town at the end of March and I was thinking about a specific style that includes crochet....I'll see.
It's not a problem. Just drop back in when you are ready. I'm just lurking in my own challenge myself.
I have been so lazy and have primarily worn buns since the beginning of the year...the flu wiped me out. I am steaming my hair now and I am going to start installing mini-twists at 6. Hopefully I will be done by 1 a.m.
My mini twists are out and I've installed medium twists.
Here is my first set of twists for the new year. They shrunk immediately, but I don't care.
Back into twists for the week. I have to admit, my hair is so much easier on wash day after its been twisted for the week and only out for one day.
My hair appt is the 11th so I'll be in a crochet style for around 6 weeks or so.
I decided to sport some large plaits for the week.
Normally, I don't like wearing them because they're a pain to loosen. Yesterday, I decided to detangle with a comb so I was able to part my hair neatly and the braids look smoother. I might keep this up because the stretch from braids will keep my hair from getting tangled.
Washed & Dc..Swoop curls on the side & twist in the back..
Happy Hair Growing!
Took my plaits out, washed them, then installed three strand twists using the same parts.
Wash day today.
Steamed my in henna, cowashed, steamed my deep conditioner. Added leave in and twisted for the week.
I did a side twist pin up today. Super simple.
Didnt get my hair braided because my stylist didnt fly into NY.
Washed my hair this Saturday and its currently in some raggedy looking twists.
This week, I'm back in braids.
I will say, that the three strand twists kept my hair nice and stretched as well as "tangle free". I think that I'll continue to alternate between these large braids and twists for the next little while.
I may be back starting in April. Depends on how my hair looks when I get it straightened. If it's depressing, I'm getting braids. If not, I'll keep it out. I want to do braid outs and flexirods.. and buns.
I installed some mini twists yesterday. They took forever!
