Flat Twisted Sides and TST's on the Top and Back!
I got up this morning and really could not think of how I wanted to wear my hair this weekend. I took my Bonnet off and saw that my twist out needed a bit of help. After some failed attempts at several updo's with the twist out, I decided to just do a quick twist hair style. I got out of bed at 6:15am and finished my hair by 7:30. Flat twists on side and tst's on top and back.
It really didnt take very long and I have a bowling tournament in Philadelphia tomorrow afternoon. It snowed this morning only about 1-2 inches and I wanted something that was easy to throw a hat on and off.
The products that I used for twisting was H2O to dampen and make sure fully detangled from twist out, Oyin Handmade's Whipped Pudding with a bit of Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade. When finished I put some Aloe Vera Gel down each twist and sealed with EVOO/ Soybean Oil. I put my Loc Soc on to set the twists and finish getting ready for work.
We will see about that. Not sure how that style will look on me.
BTW, my daughter has decided she wants to go natural. Her hair is about 12-14 inches with an inch of new growth. She says that she is going to try to go natural but if it takes to long to grow out and she likes the length, she will just do a big trim and perm. She is currently wearing Sew ins and really prefer those over braids. She said she wouldnt mind doing a set of kinky twists. I am going to look at some Youtube Videos to see if I can master kinky twists. If I do, I will save us a ton of money.
I would like to become more of a natural hair guru and stylist and supplement my income. I have a long way to go for that, but I may get a mannequin head and start trying a few styles and techniques.
Have a Safe and Exceptional Weekend!
