The Twists are Back

It took me 4 hours to do the twists this time mainly because I made the back twists larger then before.
I will keep these in for 2 weeks then I think I may do some cornrows next.
All down # Fail

Pinned to the side- now this is better!

I experienced some breakage last week...nothing too excessive, but enough to alarm me. I would see short broken hairs like every day and it just freaked me out so I told myself that I would stay in protective styles until the end of the year. Now twists aren't a protective style unless the ends are tucked I'll probably bun them during the week.

*Don't mind the super shiny face/forehead


  1. They are really pretty

  2. Love Love Love!!!

    Do you mind sharing what products you use on your twists? I'm also relaxed and prefer not to wear my hair super straight, I love the textured look. I've tried twisting, but I haven't found the right combination of products to keep them to stay. Thanks

  3. @ Maya- Thank you!! :-D

    I have done twists 3x now and used different products each time.
    The first time, I used a mix of Shea-butter and Aloe Vera Gel which gave me great hold.
    Second time, I used Giovanni Direct Leave-in which worked great.
    This time I used a thick creamy moisturizer (African Pride Oil Moisturizer).
    My biggest tip when doing twists on relaxed hair is before hand you should air-dry in braids. That way you have more texture to work with. I also twirl the ends of each twists around my finger to make sure they don't unravel.

  4. You posted these twists at the right time! I'm planning on doing some very soon. I love yours & they're so shiny. And your makeup is so on point! U look gorgeous girl! -K.D.

  5. @ K.D- Thank you!!!!
    I know twists will look great on you...not only because you are natural and know how to style your hair so nicely..but also because of your pretty hair color!
