I have had these twists in for 2 weeks now(as of 11.2.13)
I must say that I am slightly missing my fro! I always get this way and the feeling will pass soon.
I love that my hair always looks “done” in the morning without much effort.
I put in a couple Cowry Shells because I just like the look of them.
The front of my hair is still flaking even though I oiled my scalp a few times, so I may wash/condition these twists soon.
I planned on re-doing the front at 3 weeks, but now feel like it’s not necessary. The twists don’t look too bad and I haven’t placed much tension on my edges plus I’m lazy. So, I’ll wait to re-do them when they’re 4 weeks old.
I’m still spraying them almost nightly with African Pride Braid Spray, oiling my scalp 2-3 times a week and wrapping them nightly with a satin scarf.
One thing I have noticed, that I am not fully blaming the twists on..yet, is that neck broke out not too long after installing them. It’s mainly on the side where most of the twists lay, so I am slightly conviced it’s because I did not do the ACV soak on this hair and I may have a minor allergic reaction.
So for now, I will be wearing my hair in a ponytail or bun until this clears up.
Hope you all have a great week!
