I completely forgot to post about my wash day after the last set of twists. It went great! I actually started untwisting my hair on the ride home one day.
When I got home, I doused my hair in coconut oil as my pre poo as continued untwisting. I must say, it was soooo much easier to take out than put in. I had no difficulty untwisting my hair, even without the coconut oil. That was just an added bonus.
My concern was that I would miss a twist (you know I’m good for that) and find it a month later when it’s starting to loc. LOL.
For the most part, I caught all of the twists. There were about 4 that I discovered as I was washing my hair. Those were harder to take out because my hair was already wet and had shampoo in it. I used Kinky Curly Come Clean for that extra clean feeling.
I had them in for about a week, so I think it was worth the trouble. If my scalp didn’t get dirty so quick, I would probably be able to keep styles much longer.
Here’s a pic of the thinness of my current twists. Are they not mini twists? Lol
The finished product
First post of 2012! This post has been in my mind for a few days and I’m finally putting it on paper… well… you know what I mean.
So you know I did my big chop on 7.22.11. A major inspiration for my big chop was Forever Curly Catrina (You need to see her Fotki!). When I saw her hair, I thought to myself that we had similar hair textures. I fell in love with her mini twists and decided that I was ready for the big chop and I would mini twist my hair. FAIL! FAIL! FAIL!
In 2011, I learned that my hair texture is like none other. Everyone has a unique hair texture that responds differently to different things.
I also learned that whatever style you see someone else rocking, it will never look exactly the same on you. It’s best to just start off with a variation of it to save yourself the disappointment.
About two posts ago, I showed you my mini twists, which I absolutely love. A few days later I stumbled upon this pic of Forever Curly Catrina and realized that I randomly achieved the style that I was dying for when I first cut my hair. Small two strand twists that curl at the ends. SUCCESS!
I redid my mini twists tonight. This time, I timed it and it took me about 2.5 hrs to twist my whole head. Never again… for real this time!
Love you for reading.
