Good day lovelies,
I've had on these small/medium sized twists for about three days now... I find that I rarely leave my hair out nowadays, the weather is god-awful and my hair shrinks up the second I step outside. Never mind all that, today is a different day! The sun is out (well, sorta), I have my candy pinstriped blazer on and cut off checker pants - Leggo!
I don't usually like small twist outs, but I don't mind the result this time around.
This is a basic twist out; but I gotta say my hair has been super soft and fluffy of late. I always tell Nyachomba that castor oil is my go-to sealant... but oh, mine comrades, nothing, and I mean NOTHING works quite as well for my twist outs as the marvelous mixture of unrefined shea butter, castor oil and coconut oil mix.
I made a batch last week; not much though, just enough to fill a 200ml container. The mix consisted of:
- Three heaped table-spoons of pure unrefined shea butter
- One table spoon full of Castor oil
- and One scoop of extra virgin coconut oil ('scoop' because the weather has my coconut oil solidifying)
The twists ended up being roughly 20 or so, I'm lazy as heck when it comes to twists and I hardly ever do more than 12. As I did the twists, I used my water + gly + olive/o + peppermint/0 spritz to moisturise my clean and detangled hair, and the shea mix to seal each individual moisturised twist, from root to tip.
NB: always do your twists on tangle-free hair/ freshly detangled hair. It makes all the difference.
Fast forward to three days later and voila! Here is my twist out :)
Enjoy the rest of your day good people.
