So, as you know we’re back in our fav protective style for BIG HAIR, twists! From last week’s post I shared how we put these bad boys in with products from the Beautiful Curls (BC) Curl Activating Curly to Kinky Hair line. You may recall I mentioned that I started on BBH’s hair one fine late afternoon (emphasis on “late”). BAD MOVE. After all the hours of twisting her hair, it was still a little damp when she went to bed. Results= frizzies and limp twists in the AM, like instant day 5 hair (oh gaaaaaaa!). I just lived with it for a few days but as soon as the opportunity presented itself, I re-twisted the front and top layers of her twists. I lightly spritzed her hair w/my concoction and added a bit of the Queen Helene’s Curl Shaping Creme (great hold and sheen and fabulous for defining curls, trust- posted here). I did this because her hair was fully loaded with BC products from a few days before and I just needed to revive and give her hair a little more hold for the next week.
While I was at it, I decided to redo her “hair band.” Feeling pretty confident from the cornrow head band style I did previously (see here. No more blasted cornrows, YEY!), I thought I try another corn row style. Sooooo making a second special guest appearance is yet again is the cornrow, 2 to be exact:)
I remixed her twists much earlier in the afternoon so her hair was good and dry by the evening, plus I wasn’t working with saturated “hairwashing day” hair. It was just barely damp with my water/Leave In mixture (Kinky Curly’s Knot Today) with a few drops of Beautiful Curls new Shea Butter & Coconut Hydrating Curl Oil (see BC review here). This is her hair 5-6 days later without adding a lick of product to it whatsoever (for real), just covering at night…
Much, MUCH better and more typical of the results I get from styling her twists. Whew! I’m at peace now. Stay tuned for another remix!!
