Hair Journey Day 54

DAY 54 (11/6/12)
These last few weeks I have been wearing my hair in twist outs. It looks best when I twist it every night but of course that does not happen often. I would love to do it every night but i'm just never in the mood. So I normally wear my twist out for about two days. Anything longer then that and my twist/curls are not longer defined.

I haven't wore a wash and go in more then two weeks. I'm debating what I want to do to my hair this week. Not sure if I want to straighten it for a few days or not. It's been raining every day out here so flat ironing it is pointless. I was thinking to use a hot comb. I planned to straightened my hair out once a month so I wouldn't put too much heat on it. I can pass on the heat for this month and just get my hair braided in individual braids. That would last me and it would look cute! I think this is the route that I will take.

Me and my husband are planning to take some professional pictures this week so that I can get our holiday cards ready. So Either way, I'm going to have to do something to my hair. I don't want my hair looking "natural" in our photos. lol. My natural curls are very cute but I want something professional done to my hair, so braids it will be! Braids are also a protective hair style so it will give my hair a break from being messed with for a while. I will probably keep the braids in between 2 weeks and a month.

Here's some pictures of my hair from the past few weeks









TWIST OUT PROCESS:
I Co-Wash with As I Am Coconut Cowash. Condition with Tresemme's Naturals. I DO NOT wash the conditioner out. I then apply a small amount of Eco Styler Gel to my hair. Then I do the two strand twist in medium size sections all over my head. I add a small amount of Eco Styler Gel to the end of each twist so that I can seal the twist.
I try to do my hair at night so that it has all night to dry. When Im done i put my silk bonnet on my hair and go to bed!

  4. I am natural too, it is soooo much work. Many people think that being natural is simple. WRONG!!! I have been natural since 2008. This year I decided to do protective styling so to encourage my hair to grow more. I have been wearing wigs and within the last month I got box braids. Stay strong on your journey!
