Twist and Shout

Ok as you know I am not the greatest fan of twists. However I have been wearing my hair in twists for just under 2 weeks. I have kept my hair under wraps though wearing cute hats etc when out and about only because I seriously believe twists do not suit me. If my hair was longer and thicker or even just thicker maybe I would like them on me. Also there is my weight issue. So sometimes I feel certain hairstyles make me look um not so good. I do wear instant weaves and hair pieces and just about all my friends and more have seen my hair out and about.

Anyway the picture you see if the resulting twist out. This time around I washed and blow dried my hair. Oiled my scalp with Organic Root Stimulator Jojoba oil. For my hair length I applied IC Fantasia Frizz Busting Straightening gel. I applied Anita Grants whipped butter also.

When I took out the twist I rubbed through some more of Anita Grants whipped pudding. This time I wore it all out. I just put a headband on as the front was not looking the way I hope. Once dye my hair I think I could rock this style on a regular. The twist out that is.

Not sure if I can maintain

Ok so I have not really been keeping my hair journal up to date as I should. I have reached a cross roads with my hair. I go to a hairdressers for deep conditioning treatments once a month and also to have trims when required. She is really good, however I always leave feeling that I should relax my hair.

I asked my wonderful friends their honest opinions regarding me going back to the chemical process of relaxing. They were unanimous in saying that I have been natural for so long and they felt that I should just stay as I am. Arguments being the long process to get of a relaxer and other hair options opened to me. Such as pressing when I want a straight look, instant weave or natural hairstyles that are maybe more adventurous than what I have tried before.

I was lucky to be selected as one of the winners on Afrobella for the creme of nature competition. I just hope customs are not red eye and deliver my goods to me etc. Whether I recieve them or not one thing for sure it does mean to me maybe I should try a bit longer.

I have twisted my hair. I am not a fan of twists. Simply because I do not believe they suit me. I also do not like my weight right about now. I see twist on sisters on youtube and various blogs and think wow they are cute. But the twist have done are simply so I can do a twist out. I have a few more days to go. If I dont like the twist out I will just comb it out. What I do to my hair then I just do not know.

I think I need to get a ghana braid or weave or just some singles to mull over my hair for a while.
