Good morning :)
I had a calm and relaxed weekend, (the first in a long time) so I decided to do a henna treatment, deep condition and some chunky twists to hold on to till the end of the week.
I love me some henna
After lazing around with my henna for a good 10hours, I rinsed it off and proceeded to deep condition my hair with ORS Replenishing Conditioner (we love this stuff).
NB: I always deep condition after a henna treatment because of the drying effect of henna.
Here is my naked hair (product free hair) in all its shrunken glory! Notice the red tint? I for one love the auburn color!
It only shows in bright light sadly
I sectioned my hair, detangled, partitioned that mass of curly kinks and did a couple of chunky twists. Four flat twists at the front (I'm hoping to have a bang for a twist out) and normal twists in the back (which I hold in a bun).
I used my spritz mix and home-made shea butter/ peppermint and aloe pudding to moisturize and seal (yum).
I gathered the tips of the twists and just pinned them up, I like the unexpected retro look :)
I'm rocking this look for as long as my twists can hold up. My hair is stupid soft so they start to fluff up pretty fast. If you have the same problem, re-twisting dry twists with a bit of moisturizer and caster oil is a great way to keep them neat and stretched out. I'll see how they hold up though.
I'll show you how the twist out turns out! Stay tuned for the sequel! Remember, I'm trying to achieve a killer curly bang! Wish me luck!
Love and peace x
