Protective Style: Kinky Twists #2

Image
For the past four and a half weeks, I was wearing kinky twists. It's admittedly backwards that I'm creating a post after taking them out, but that's the way it goes sometimes.

Prior to installing the twists, I prepared my hair by doing a collagen treatment (Umberto Pre-Shampoo Collagen Treatment), shampooing (Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo), and deep conditioning (Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask).

While twisting I used Donna Marie Dream Curling Cream, Miss Jessie's Unscented Curly Pudding, and Design Essentials Natural Defining Creme Gel. I alternated depending on which fragrance I was sick of at any given moment. I completed the twists over the course of two days braiding the first inch and then tightly twisting the rest of each. Read more about my twisting method here. I used 6 packs of Janet Collection Marley Hair in total.

This product has actually grown on me. I'm nearly finished with it, and I've realized it's an effective moisturizer. Does it wow me? Still no...but whenever I use it, I know my hair will be moisturized. I would purchase again during a sale if I am low on leave-ins or moisturizers.

I Miss My Hair (Protective Styling Woes)

Image
I've been wearing kinky twists since the 26th of August...and I MISS MY HAIR!!!

How do people keep protective styles in for months on end? I personally cannot do it. I get bored. I miss doing my hair and playing in my OWN hair.

Nevertheless I will be attempting to keep these in for 6, possibly 8, weeks. It may or may not happen, but I will definitely be trying for 4 weeks at least. My regimen for twists will be posted later. I am using only 4 products! Can you believe it?!
