Hair of the Week: Mini Twists

Image

Greeting lovelies! A more appropriate name for this post might be Hair of the Weeks. Sunday I spent hours upon hours styling my hair into mini twists. The style, though time consuming, is a great protective style for natural hair and it is meant to last a long time. Perfection for my busy schedule! So its been a couple days already, but I plan on keeping this style for another 2-3 weeks. I only used Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In, the basic two strand twisting method, and LOTS of patience to achieve this style. Its my first time doing the twists this small and I like them thus far. I like the way they coil up at the ends. The shrinkage with this hairstyle is crazy! My twist are literally more than twice the length they appear when I stretch one. I may stretch the twists out over time using braids or ponytails and see how they look that way. But I’m not too, too obsessive over length appearance.Anyways, enough of me being a Chatty Cathy! Here are a couple more pics where you can see the twists a little more clearly.

Until Next Time!

Hair of the Week

Hola guys I’m here with another post for all my hair lovers out there. So as I’ve said before, I’m natural and my hair is verrrryyyy thick. For this reason, and the fact that my schedule is way to busy to do anything otherwise, I don’t like to fuss with my hair everyday. I usually do one style for the week and my hair will stay that way (or some variation of it all week). This week it was a twist-out. I did my hair in about 16-20 twists, put them in a ponytail overnight and took them down in the morning. They were still a little damp which allowed for more shrinkage and less definition, but I still liked the results.

Here are a few pictures of how it looked when I first took down the twists (disclaimer: I would NEVER wear it like this, just wanted to show you all what it looked like before I manipulated it)
