The Unthinkable

I don’t know if it was a great idea or not, but I did something that I would normally never do.

Like two days ago, I was oiling my twists just to keep them moisturized and it looked a little frizzy to me. I decided to spritz it with water because I figured that would make it continue to curl and sort of stick together as it had when I first twisted it. It worked like a charm. My twists looked super shiny and like new again.

Fast forward to today… my head was itching me a lot. My scalp is used to being washed every four days or so. Today is day four of the twists. I thought maybe I could hold out until the weekend to wash my hair. Then I started to wonder what would happen if I washed my hair while it was still twisted. My first thought was that the twists would unravel. My second thought was that they would curl and look refreshed again. My third thought was that it would make it more of a nightmare to take them out.

Well… they didn’t unravel. They do look pretty refreshed. I’m pretty certain it’ll be a nightmare to untwist when it’s time. I think it would have been a nightmare regardless though.

So, it still looks good and my scalp is happy.



Christmas Hair

I wanted to do something different with my hair for Christmas. I had no idea what I was going to do up until I put the conditioner in my hair. At first the plan was to do a bun because that’s quick, easy and would last long. I’m on vacation from work though and Christmas was coming so I figured doing something a little extra wouldn’t hurt.

I saw this style on Her Best Hair that I absolutely loved. I knew my hair wouldn’t come out exactly the same and I was already planning that I would do it a little differently.

I must say that it took me forever to do my hair. I didn’t time it or anything, but I wasn’t in a rush to get it done, so I just took my time. I absolutely LOVE the way it came out and I would definitely do it again… very soon.

I did 3 two-strand flat twists on one side and I did small two-strand twists on the rest of my hair. I styled it wet, after I pre-poo’d, washed and deep conditioned it. I’m not sure how long it’s going to last, but hopefully at least a week.




So, what did you do with your hair for the holidays?
