Twist n Curl after As I Am fail
Immediately after I posted my last post, I washed and detangled my hair in order to start fresh on my weekend hairstyle. I washed with CON Argan oil shampoo and detangled with Gvp Conditioning balm. I then parted my hair into 4 quarters and distributed some SheaMoisture sheabutter LI in each section.
I sealed with a little bit of argan oil and applied some Xtreme Wetline gel to each little section before I started twisting.
**If using this gel for twisting… Please be light handed. Unlike me I added a lil too much when I started twisting and the section turned white. Took a long time to absorb into my hair. So don’t use a lot.**
I stopped twisting before I reach the ends. I can not remember how many 2 strand twist I did, but I added a perm rod to the end of each one.
Recently I have been using my hooded dryer to speed up the drying process but I’ve noticed that my crown dries and my ends remain wet. So I decided to pile all my twist on the top of my head and wrapped a hair net around them like so.
I found that this helped my ends rather than letting them hang while the rest of my hair dried quickly. There is one thing that I hate about twistouts, braid outs ect., and that is waiting for my hair to completely dry before unraveling. So I ended up taking the twist down before they were 100% dry lol smh!!
In the morning my hair was dry the whole way but I was left with some frizz in the crown section (the problem child)
This was my final look for the day
Overall the only 2 things that I would change for the future is not applying to much get to each section and letting my hair dry completely to reduce frizz.
