Fresh Twists!

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I got another installment of twists in my hair! They are very cute and bouncy. I hennaed my hair on Thursday, so it came out reddish brown, but in the twists, you can barely notice!

Just wanted to check in with you guys!

It's Been A While...

Hey everyone!

It has been a while since I've posted! I am at orientation for my college as an incoming freshman so i have been very busy, lol. I have been doing the usual with my hair, moisturizing and sealing everyday, co-washing and regular washing as needed. I have not done a deep treatment yet because I am on a college campus and it's a little more difficult to do one. I will probably mix together the following ingredients:

Amla Powder
Brahmi Powder
Rose Water

Then leave on for a few hours with my heating cap, then rinse and co-wash with either HEHH or Suave Naturals!

I have a good feeling that this will make my hair feel stronger again!

By the way....

I almost forgot to add that using henna on my twists came out great! My hair feels softer and stronger, even though I didn't leave it on for very long (45 mins at the most). Some of my hair is lighter than usual (my hair is already sandy brown) and added some coppery color to my strands. I was very happy with the results!! I will probably henna again in maybe 6-12 weeks.

French twist with my twists!

Good morning everyone!

Despite my efforts, my twists have gotten frizzier than ever! It's only been twelve days!! So to preserve the protective style, I will just be wearing a french twist for the next four days until Friday, when I get my next installment of twists done. I have to admit that I haven't been following my own advice on how to keep twists un-frizzy. I think I slept three days without a cap on a satin pillowcase which didn't exactly protect my hair. I feel really badly, because this time, I spent about 90 bucks on smaller twists. So maybe the bigger twists actually worked out. Hopefully I will get my act together and not mess things up this time! Lol.

Hennaing my twists right now!

Hello everyone,

On a whim, I decided to henna my hair. Not for the coloring benefits, but for the health benefits. It is said to strengthen the hair and loosen the curl pattern (which reduces fairy knots). I am now sitting under the dryer for the next 20 minutes or so because I don't have much time, but I will have been under for a total of 40 minutes or so. I hope that's enough. I will then follow up with a co-wash with a moisturizing conditioner (HEHH in my case) because henna is said to dry the hair, and will moisturize with my spritz mix. I have a dance class, so I don't have much time! I really want my hair to be stronger so that I can retain as much length as possible!

I will take pictures of the results a bit later!

Twists are getting longer!

My twists are getting longer and im so excited! I was able to put my hair in a high ponytail. They are starting to gain some weight, lol. I haven't straightened it in forever, and I probably won't again until December or January of next year.

Just wanted to update!

Hello everyone! Here are some pictures of my semi-mini twists! I could've had them smaller, but my twist out would've come out frizzy. I really like the outcome. I hope you like them! I started moisturizing and sealing yesterday. Little to no breakage here! I added some of my protein spritz to my moisturizing pray and I think it's working! :-). By the way, if you know newly natural people, please encourage them to join this blog! I would really like to see new naturals and their hair! I may even conduct mini-interviews on them and how their journey is going!

Hope you like the pictures!
