Yey! My kinks managed to get to week four with twists in. Yes week four. I am so proud of myself. As I mentioned in the previous post just before this one, one of my frustrations with two strand twists is my hair’s inability to keep them on for at least a month. I also mentioned that I did my twists differently to try and address this problem area of our relationship.
Just to remind you, I did my twists in stages for different sections of my hair. When my whole head was twisted, I then re-twisted the hair along my forehead as and when it became too untidy. This helped me to keep them longer.
This last weekend, on Saturday I flat twisted the section of hair along my forehead once more before taking them out because my scalp is in such a state and it’s so itchy it needs a thorough wash. I only washed my hair in these twists once after about two weeks with them. The main reason I did this is to combat the matting of shed hair which may mean detangling nightmares. I noticed detangling is much harder when my hair is washed in twists many times before taking them out. So this time, my hair relied mainly on my spritz for moisture more than anything and of course my trusted Shea butter to seal the moisture in.
