i JUST took the rest of those twists out from back in late december. yup. lets just say that was a travesty. detangled, washed, now deep conditioning. ((sigh)) dont ask me why i did that to myself. DO NOT ASK! haha.
Hi Guys. I am getting twists tomorrow. I have scanned the forum to getting twists and maintaining them, and got some good tips which I listed below...but . The girl who is doing them told me to 'grease my scalp' buttttttt I am not really feelin that.
I am transitioning, lo-po, coarse strands, grazing SL in the longest layers, I cowash nightly ,dc once a week and tea rinse once a week, I m also doing the CG method.. Getting marley braid put in. I am going to soak the hair in apple cider vinegar/water before putting them in my hair and doing a 30 minute moisturizing DC before having her braid it.
Is there anything else I should do prior? And how should I maintain them? Without using grease...or at least grease without sulphates or silicones in them..
I will be in mini twists all of April (can't wait)! Until then, I am practicing some out styles w/o heat. Victoria44 your braid outs are so pretty. Could you give some tips on how you achieve this style. You do not use heat, correct? What products/technique? Do you do it on wet hair right after wash/cond? Or is it on dry hair? Thanks!
[USER said:Victoria44;18102183[/USER]]Thank you! My braid outs are pretty simple. I don't use heat. I wash/DC on wash day and then I apply kinky curly knot today and seal with a little bit of castor oil, section by section on damp hair. I usually have 10-12 braids.
The next day those chunky braids have dried and also shrink. So I unbraid each one, slightly spritz with water, split it in two, apply a little bit of my fav moisturizer (qhemet biologics burdock root butter cream/Oyin handmade hair dew) and apply a very tiny amnt of castor oil.
At this point I have doubled the braids so they're more stretched and also they were done on dry hair so they won't shrink as much over night.
Then the next day I just take it out and fluff fluff fluff til it's as full as it can get lol.
How do you maintain it for 2nd/3rd day?
