Compliments on my Twists!

I was at a bowling tournament this weekend and one of my friends complimented me on my twists and asked if I would do hers.  I said no problem.  I wouldn't mind getting individual plaits instead of of twists and possibly keeping them in for a month.  Wow, I used to be able to do that for at least 2 months but these days I find that I am anxious to wash my hair at the most every 2 weeks.

                                                               (Apologies for the blurry pic)

I am currently on week 2 of my minitwists and they are still looking nice.  I haven't rinsed them yet and I may try to do that soon.  Last night I just spritzed, used my mix and sealed with oil ... I put my hair up in the back and added some rollers to the front that I left out (hard curlers).  I think tonight I will possibly find my rods or use flexi rods to get a better curl.  The hard curlers gave me a softer curl pattern which is nice for pin curls or a softer up style.  The back was done by criss crossing and pinning.  I like the look... What do you think?

I apologize I didnt have my iTouch to take clearer photos and maybe should have cleaned my lense on my cell phone.

I keep daydreaming about cutting my hair in a twa, locking and doing a really nice culy fro but still sitting around in my mini twists.  I will give it a break at least until the end of May and see what my length retention protective styles yield me.  I would love to have a thicker, longer, curl/coil  popping wash and go in the warmer months.

I will keep with my winter hair regimen of washing at least every two weeks and protective styling.  I do not want to start any new products but would like to try a coil out in the near future.  Maybe my next wash day I will attempt a few coils to see if the come out fine.  Really not alot to report on the hair.  Attempting to stay focused on thickening my hair if possible at least in density and maintaining healthy hair.   It is almost time for a salon visit to get a professional trim.

Have a great Monday!

  1. Hmmm . . . I'm intrigued by your hair daydreams. Sounds like you have quite a few things you'd like to do to your hair. Getting bored, are you? Every now and then, I'd like to coil mine but I only foresee tangles, knots and disaster. But I can dream, can't I? I think my hair might be too long for my comfort and I don't have patience to sit for hours upon hours. And get that camera out please . . . no more fuzzy pictures. LOL!
