I always twist my hair when it’s wet and freshly washed. Last Sunday, I decided to twist my hair after it dried overnight. I thought it would be a great idea because my hair would be stretched and my twists would hang longer.
I spent about an hour and fifteen minutes twisting my hair. I attempted to style it after and no style looked good to me. I gave up on styling it and just went to workout.
The next day my twists looked like they were a week old. I realized that my twists last longer and come out better when my hair is wet because each strand just curls right into the twists.
In any case, my scalp was itching like crazy on Monday night so I just untwisted it and washed it. All of the working out I’ve been doing has my scalp in a constant state of being dirty/sweaty.
Here are my dry twists
This is two fishtail braids. Hated it!
A side bun, but I couldn’t manage to get all of the ends tucked in. Hated it!
This is a” fold in half” bun (I just made that up. Lol). I’m on the fence about it.
Ultimately, I accomplished my mission of wearing twists for a full month. I love them!

Rece, they look so pretty to me and I like the two fishtail braids and buns!!! And congrats on your Mission Accomplished:)!! Are you going to keep wearing them? (I was thinking of your love of Catrina’s twists and how yours look just like hers … which is what I think you were referring to when you said, “True, true, true” on that post I did about lusting after someone else’s hair, only to realize that your own looks like that!! LOL!!
Thanks! The two fishtail braids and buns was actually my least favorite style. I just took the final set of twists out this week. I’ll be back to twisting soon, but I think I’m going to straighten it first. We’ll see. My hair leads me. Lol
You motivated me to try wearing twists until the end of november, or rather wear my hair in twist 6 out of 7 days a week. So far, so good, I am on week two. I like it because my schedule is so hectic with work, the gym and studying for the cpa exam, that I dont have time to do my hair. I like that my hair stays moisturized really well (I dont know if its the twist, or the new products I started using). Anyway, this past saturday, I did my twist on almost completely dry hair, and they are a hot frizzy mess already, and its only day 3. 😦
What new products? Spill the beans!
Dry twists had my hair looking a hot mess the next day.
I agree that with a hectic life, twists work out so well. With twists, I don’t have to worry about anything in the morning and I can workout as much as I want with not a care.
I just bought a bunch of new random products that worked – to detangle and cowashI switched to herbal essences ‘totally tousled” – I love this stuff! I can detangle my hair in no time! And then i conditioned (for about an hour) with some hair mayo/protein deep conditioner. Then I used garnier fructis leave in with shea butter, apply a little coconut oil, then finish with shea moisture styling milk (coconut and hibiscus). My hair stayed moisturized for the ‘whole week’ I didnt have to apply any products not once! I never had that before, I always had to reapply a moisturized after a couple days. Its a great combo for me, for now. 🙂
