LOTD: Natural hair twistout

Hey!

Just a quick picture of my twistout.

2 Strand twistout

I keep my hair in a 2-strand twist about 95 % of the time.  It’s just easy.  But a few days before washing and deep conditioning, I take the twists out to allow my hair to breathe, rest, whatever.  I usually braid the roots and twist the rest of the hair.  As for products, right now I am using my ever faithful Oyin Handmade products and some other items.

Updated haircare routine

So have have not been buying a lot of products as of late, but I’ve been loving a few items. I usually wash and condition every other week. The process is done in four sections.   I wear my hair in a protective style for one week then as a twist-out/bun for the next.  I definitely will be experimenting with more styles this year! So here’s what’s hot with me!!

  • Prepoo: Organic Coconut oil.  Just applied to my strands a few hours before washing.
  • Shampoo: Well I stopped using regular sulphate shampoo years ago, and I have been loving the Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo. My hair never feels dry with this product!
