it ain't really that serious but I decided to take those twists down asap after 18 days because I noticed my roots were meshing and I didn't want to risk any chances of damaging my hair because I would have to use some force to get my twists undone. Good thing I did. A few of my twists (especially in the nape of the neck) were meshed together! It took me about 6-8 hours to take down my twists (2 days) It will be a cold day in you know where before I do them that small anytime soon. Good thing I got the pictures for memories.
(Um, random commentary from the future 5/27/10....yeah right! I specialize in mini twists! I just roll with the punches now and have perfected my twisting skills and no longer deal with a lot of tangling!)
Anyway, I am wearing a braidout. I spent a day and forever to take those gawd awful twists down (took friggin 6-8 hours). I detangled as I took down each section and immediately braided my hair up. I used Paul Mitchell's the Detangler and Coconut Oil to detangle with. You talking about da bomb? My hair has never been happier.
If you have been visiting my album or have seen any older posts from me on NP my biggest complaint is how long it takes me to detangle. Well this combination is the truth and I will continue to use it and hope it wasn't a one time deal.
I just bought some unrefined/organic coconut oil from the Vitamin Shoppe (8 dollars) and used that alone as a leave in.
My hair is soft but it isn't moist. I'm use of going outside on a warm day and my hair just soak up all the moisture, But it isn't (because I don't have any glycerin in my hair). So I plan on keeping the coconut oil in my routine, but just adding glycerin (bought at the grocery store Ukrops for 2.99) to this routine.
had to pick a new location for my photo shoot because my neighbors decided they wanted to come outside today...go figure.
