Lately, my hair has been giving me so much trouble. Last week, I had my hair cut and styled at Ouidad salon, and I thought that this would solve my hair tangling problems. Unfortunately, the overpriced hair cut did nothing, but further create more tangles on my shoulder length hair.
I decided to take matters into my own hands, and forgo my usual wash n’ go’s, and return to my trusty twist-out.
First I pre-pooed my hair using my favorite inexpensive conditioner Suave Naturals.
Then I co-washed my hair using Soultanicals CurlPlay. This co-wash is the best! It smells like a combination of a Strawberry lollipop and a red Jolly Rancher candy. Its rich creamy texture saturates my hair and melts tangles away.
Next I deep conditioned my hair with Soultanicals Curl Elastic, which smells like a mixture of tropical flowers and fruit. I sectioned off my hair and raked the product through. Then I placed a shower cap onto my head, a clean plastic bag, and finally Thermal Hair Care heat wrap onto my head. I sat with the thermal cap for almost an hour. I took the cap off my head, and I swear my hair did the Nae Nae. It was hydrated and soft.
Whenever, I twist my hair I always do the LOC method. The LOC method stands for Liquid, Oil, and Cream. This method helps to add additional moisture to hair that is prone to breaking. Before exiting the shower I make sure that my hair is still went; I clipped it into sections. Then I used a mixture of oils such as: jojoba, avocado grapeseed, and tea tree, along with my Alikay Naturals Essential 17 Hair Growth Oil. My creams for this particular style was the Oyin Handmade Hair Dew & Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Style Setter . Although the Camille Rose Naturals Style Setter is not my hair’s favorite, I couldn’t bear to throw away this product. Oyin’s Handmade Hair Dew is my year round holy grail product. This product’s creamy oil goodness allows me to use it as a leave-in and a styler without leaving my hair crunchy or dry. Finally, I use TastiKiss Nourishing Hair Butter to seal in the ends of my hair; over the years I have found this step to be the most crucial because the ends of our hair are oldest part of hair and essential in maintaining hair growth.
