After Nearly 6 Weeks...The Twists Are Gone!!12:21 PM
Hooray Hooray!! The twists are out!!! I began the dreaded take down process late Tuesday night and finally finished up around 10pm. last night. That may seem like a long time to you, but it certainly didn't feel that way to me. Based on appearance I could have kept them in longer, but even a "protective" can be damaging when worn for too long. As you know, I don't wash my twists...at all. Spritzing it here and there with water, but that can't replace a good thorough wash. My scalp was desperate to be cleaned after almost 6 weeks of wearing twists.
Last night after snapping the pics below I washed my hair in 4 sections with Elucence MB Shampoo and saturated it with Bee Mine Deep Conditioner. I actually still have the deep conditioner in under a plastic cap as I type lol! Once I rinse it out I'll probably set it in braids for a braidout...I don't think I really have the patience to do any other style.
Also I know I kinda hinted that I'd do a take down video, but I didn't...sorry :( I was on a roll getting those twists out and recording a video would have only slowed me down. However, I recorded a tutorial back in January 2010 and I haven't changed my method at all. You can view that video >HERE<.
...feels so good to have my hair loose again!!
