If I had a signature natural hairstyle, mini twists would be a tie right along with the braid out.
List of excuse me:
*acne from hair experiments with oil
*eyebrows shot to you know where
Okay, now back to the style, I took my twists down on tuesday or monday and wednesday I got this great, wonderful, awesome idea to do a protein treatment in my hair. I hope you can smell the sarcasm oozing from my words. Anyway, I thought that maybe my hair was too elastic. Why I don't know. So at 12 am in the morning or so, I put Audrey GPB protein treatment in my hair. Then, I don't know what the heck I was thinking, I normally read everything before I plop it on my head, but this time I said what the hey, can't be too much more than placenta in this stuff and panthenol, so without reading the ingredients I threw some of Queen Helene's Placenta Hot Oil treatment on my head.
After I put it on, I flipped the bottle around, Probably the seventh ingredient was KERATIN. OMG. Keratin. I know keratin is probably one of the strongest proteins that one can put on their hair. I thought to myself, it can't be that bad.
INSERT SHANENEH EYE ROLL
Hmph! For the last eight months my hiar has been tangle free until I did this. My God! I will never do that again! I just hope that my hair is not damaged and this shall too pass. Can't win for losing.
So here I am now, on Thursday, with mini twists. Started around 9 or 10 and finished at 3:30 AM. SO excuse the puffy eyes too please.
I stopped experimenting with twisting with different products and went back to my tried and true World of Curls Curl Activator gel (dry hair formula) and Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera gel with naturals.
First I cowashed my hair with Yes to Cucumbers conditioner (good slip I must say), then sectioned my hair off and got to twisting.
In the middle of my hair, I decided to experiment with olive oil. I put world of curls on the each section, slathered oil on my hands and rubbed it through, trying to see if this will make a difference.
These are going to stay in for AT LEAST 3 weeks if not more. I trimmed my ends up really good and now I want to protect them. Plus it is too hot to wear any other style. 102 today, 103 Saturday and 104 Sunday. Yeah, um okay. Lol.
Stay cool everyone and have a blessed weekend and thank you for stopping by and commenting! You all are the best!
