Hey guys!!! Sorry it has been a few days! Between work and dealing with this hair, i have had my hands full. I am still in love with my twists, but now that I have had them in for a few days I have sort of established a routine.
For one, I cannot stress this enough, but make sure they aren’t too tight when you get them in!!! My braider was very tight and now I am wishing I had spoken up. My scalp is constantly itchy & today is the first day since I got them that my head doesn’t hurt! All of this could have been avoided. I washed them in really hot water water two days ago, and it has loosened them up quite a bit. So thank goodness!!!
As far as my routine goes, I am still working on it. For right now, I have been using a dry shampoo in the morning & when I get the itchies. It helps sooo much. I have also mixed tea tree oil, coconut oil and olive oil with some water & I spray that on my scalp and the length of my hair. Then, I use my Ion leave in on my actual hair. This seems to be maintaining my hair for now, but I haven’t even had these for a week yet, so we will see.
I know it my last entry I had said that I would gives some tips on styling, but for now I have been keeping it really loose like you see in the picture. I am giving it a bit of a rest. I have two months to find cool things to do with it. For now, I am going to focus on keeping it moisturized and avoiding breakage. Let me know if you have any questions or tips for me!!!
