I lost my mind again and did another set of mini twists ya'll! If you've been rocking with me for a while, then you will know I have a love hate relationship with mini twists.
I love the look. I absolutely love how versatile mini twists are and how they look on me in general, however (this is a BIG however with a lot of emphasis on the "how"), I HATE the take down from these things!
Usually, it can take me literally up to two days or more to take all this mess down because my hair tangles so bad from them.
I don't know if it is the mini twists itself that cause the tangling, or the fact that I wear these things anywhere from 2-5 weeks at a time which can cause the 4 weeks worth of shed hair to wrap around my twists and cause the tangling. I think it is the latter.
So this go around, since I have SOOOO much free time on my hand since I completed my last class ever as a college student last week and I'm sitting waiting patiently for a callback from a job, I am going to try to take these down after exactly 14 days of wear. Hopefully this will solve my issue. I will definitely keep you all posted.
|. I'm trimming my ends soon and I'm so mad I'm deal with breakage in my crown SMH|
And also, since I am out of school, with absolutely NOTHING to do, since I am patiently waiting for a job to call me back after I completed my last class ever as a college student last week, expect more frequent updates. Much more frequent.
Like expect a new post tomorrow, maybe even a new video tonight. I'm just saying. 0_o
Here is the low down on the mini twists:
- Washed and conditioned my hair using Oyin Honeywash cleanser and Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner
- While my hair was still wet, I applied Worlds of Curls curl activator gel to my hair as I twisted up my hair into big jumbo twists.
- After my hair was put into twists, I let it air dry for about 12 hours overnight
- The next day I broke down each jumbo twist one at a time into mini twists reapplying Worlds of Curls as needed as well as Fruit of the Earth aloe vera gel to the ends
- Voila! Tis all I did
