Guess who got motivated yesterday and set herself up with a head full of two strand twists?
I rarely do two strand twists because they can take quite a chunk of time, however every few months, I’m down to invest the time. Besides, after the initial upfront time, you don’t have to do much to your hair and then few days later you get to take them out and have a really sweet twist-out style!
To set these twists I co-washed and detangled with JessiCurl Aloeba Daily Conditioner, deep conditioned with my favorite Aubrey Organics GBP, and once everything was all rinsed out I used Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Milk as a leave in. (I have to say, the KBB Hair Milk is a fantastic product; it makes my hair feel like silk! I don’t know why I don’t use this stuff more often…oh wait….yes, yes I do: it makes me smell like a Glade Plug In for 2 days. It doesn’t smell bad, just floral, spicy and STRONG. It has turned heads before. I’ll will be repurchasing this one, just not in the Chamomile Sage scent…) Then I used Afroveda’s Ginger Almond Butter to put the twists in.
The twists came out ok. Not great, just ok. I don’t think the Afroveda butter was good at keeping the twists frizz free. Now, the one thing I did notice was that my twists have gotten long! The front twists now lie on top of my eyebrows while the back twists fall to the back of my neck. It’s been about 6 months since I did the big chop and it’s really cool to be able to see such noticeable growth! I went digging through my pictures so that you too can see how Lola’s twists have grown since the big chop.
I think I’ve noticed the most significant growth between March and May. I think it’s probably had a lot to do with having a more consistent regimen of products and styling and perhaps even the multivitamins I’ve hopped on the wagon of taking. Either way it’s definitely motivating to see the progress!
I also want to give a sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you who wished me well after the bike accident! It really meant a lot. I’m doing a lot better and have even gotten back to riding with a helmet of course!
