a tip for braid-twist outs!

I tried my twist outs with lottabody setting lotion plus moisturiser (wet set) and the resulting curls are fuller and last longer!!!! I use do my twist outs with scurl and moisturiser alone but my hair got weighed down and sticky and heavy from the abundance of scurl and the curls would only last for 1 day.

what i did was spray sections of my hair WET with lottabody and then apply oil moisturizer (can be profectiv, EQP mango butter, coconut oil etc) then twist into bantu knots and spray the ehad lightly with scurl. let sit for 30 mins b4 covering and going to bed.

the setting lotion is better, gives shine and lasts longer!

i did 8 bantu knots on my head. i have the feeling the lotabdy cream wrap will be better. the liquid setting lotion leaves some pples hair crisp, esp. if it is too concentrated. but till i get my creme wrap i am loving this.

Thanks Pandora! One more question. What do you use to secure the bantu twists down to your scalp? Did you use bobby pins? /images/graemlins/tongue.gif

For some reason, I've found that my hair comes out crazy /images/graemlins/crazy.gif when I do the bantu knots on freshly washed hair. It just seems to come out looking better when I keep the twists hanging down and put rollers on the ends only. I think it's because doing the bantu knots curls the hair up too much... /images/graemlins/ohwell.gif
