Hey Y'all!!! Hope you're doing fabulous!
I have been wearing my hair out all Summer and I needed a change. At the spur of the moment, on Saturday AM, I decided to put some twists in my hair. I ended up starting them at 4pm and finished at 9:30pm. I was surprised how fast I did them(compared to the 8hrs in the past), but I was determined to finish and enjoy my evening.
I used Marley hair although I forget the exact brand names. I decided to switch it up and use red(#99) hair(for highlights) opposed to the #30(brown/blonde) hair I typically used.
I plan to keep these in for about 4 weeks, maybe more depending on the neatness.
I lightly blow-dried my hair the night before(coincidentally). It made things much easier. Now that I think about it, that's probably why I twisted my hair so fast.
When twisting, I just applied some moisturizer(African pride- trying to use this up) mixed with castor oil.
For upkeep, I just spray my scalp and length of my real hair with African Pride Braid spray.
I will be curling the hair in a week or so and may add some cowry shells to spice things up.
