3 Weeks Of Twists Down...A Fab Twist Out For Days!

5:40 PM

The title says it all...I wore my twists for 3 weeks and the twist out cam out fabulous!! But before I get into that I want to go over my last few days wearing the twists...

First of it was hot...no more like HOT everyday last week and the HUMIDITY was ridiculous! Although the weather cause me a lot of frizz, the humidity actually helped to keep my twists plumped and soft. For the last week or so my regime has been super simple...almost nonexistent lol! I massaged my scalp using Bee Mine Scalp Serum, spray my ends with water and that's it. I did that process every other day, except for the day I took these photos. I applied a little Avocado Shea Butter to seal the moisture in after spritzing with water.

The next day I decided go ahead and take down. I had initially planned to wash my hair immediately after the take down, but after seeing the first couple twists unraveled decided to rock a twist out instead. The definition was CRAZY and felt so soft. And you would think that because the SMCES (Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie) is such a thick product that my hair would feel weighed down and greasy, but it didn't feel that way at all. Here's a couple of the take down and twistout...
I absolutely loving this twist out...which is currently on it's 3rd day and it's still looking good. All except for a small patch of middle I spotted this morning. Yuck! Tonight I plan on shampooing and then an overnight DC using Rhassoul Clay. I'm not sure what how I'll be styling my hair or how long I'll wait before putting in my next set of twists, but I'll keep you guys updated of course!

*Sidebar* Anyone notice my hair getting lighter or is it just me? My hair has always been brown, I actually used to hate the color of my hair, but lately it seems lighter to me. I'm not sure if it's the sun or could it be my beloved Rhassoul...I have no clue. No complaints though, I love it! It makes my kinks look sunkissed lol!

  8. This twistout turned out great! Yes. I have noticed a difference in the color of your hair and it looks like you re-colored it, but I wasn't sure. The twist out looks great btw. I'm glad I'm not the only person who does that. I love impromptu twist outs!

  9. @Janelle LOL! How did the twists come out?

    @Loeski Nope, no re-coloring over here sis. However if I ever did decide to color my hair, I would go darker not lighter. I love the look of dark curls and kinks!!

  10. I recently picked some Rhassoul Clay from my health food store (new NOW brand). "Liked" the results, will try it again by adding coconut oil & avacado butter and keep it in overnight to enhance the benefits. I want to love it. Plus my ends are looking scraggly ;-( BTW...why do you not plan on trying henna as a conditioner?

  11. It is probably the sun lightening your hair. I once spent a month in Mexico and came back with brown highlights on my locs.

  12. your hair is gorgeous! absolutely love it!

  13. Wow! your twists are gorgeous! I started to wear a twistout in this heat wave and after one day I said forget that! So now I twisted up again. Did you do anything special to control the frizz?
