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.

Here’s my long shortlist! 😛

  • Kinky Curly Knot Today – leave-in conditioner
  • Oyin Handmade Whipped Pudding – for added moisture
  • Oyin Handmade Shine & Define – for definition and moisture
  • Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade – to seal in moisture, some hold and for fragrance!  If Oyin stopped making this, I don’t know how I would survive…


I still have to figure out what going on with my ends – I definitely need a cut.
