I have been gone for awhile and needed time to re-focus and prioritize my life.
Along with prioritizing my life, my hair has been in simple protective styles; I have been practicing here and there. I want to master the 2-strand flat-twist, I just feel like I am handicap when it comes to getting the hair to twist correctly. But I do love the results, especially since I know I am giving my all to it.
I did 2-strand flat-twist on the side and medium twists in the back and small twists in the very front.
In this protective style I cornrowed the sides and twisted the remaining hair.
I love that protective styles fit me well and that they give me a chance to take a break from manipulating my hair.Now that the season is changing it calls for me to change my regimen. My regimen will consist of wearing my hair in Protective styles for 1 - 1 1/2 week(s). Pre-poo, Shampoo with a Sulfate free shampoo, condition, Deep Condition (this may come before the shampoo; varies), and then LOC Method. Lastly, back to a protective style. Twice or maybe three times a month I will Co-wash, therefore I will not Pre-poo, but will deep condition.
Coconut Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil or Cold pressed Castor Oil, Grape seed oil (oils may vary; but these are my staple oils)
