Brief How-To

I did all my twist including the flat twist in the front and the two strand twist in the back. This time I styled the hair wet. After completing the twist I section the hair in half and began to roll the very back up after I secured that I incorporated the rest of the hair and secured with bobby pins. If there were any fly away twist I simply tucked them into the bun. I will probably wear this style for a week. I will refresh it with a mixture of water, vegetable glycerin (that I got from Whole Food’s) and essential oils. I also oil my scalp with olive oil to keep my dry scalp at bay.

After the week is up, I will take the bun down and co wash my hair with the two strand twist. I really like this effect you can read more about it here.

  7. This is a great site and i am a fan on FB. I have been growing my own hair since Oct 09 and will be sharing my own photos as well. I use pure shea butter, and certain products from Carol's Daughter, Dr. Miracle and Taliah Waajid. Thanks for sharing your experience. Do you have any blow-dry tips for the ends? I've only blow dry my hair 2 or 3 times in the past 6 months.
