DOUBLE STRAND TWIST

I did double strand twists in my hair using Cantu Leave in conditioner. I had about 10 of them because I was being lazy and didn't want really skinny twists anyways! I wasnt a fan of the result so tonight I am going o do really big twist and do bandu knots with them because I do not want to wash my hair again so soon. Here are the results and also how I made my twists work for me today with a style!

 PUT ROLLERS IN TO MAKE THEM CURL

 SIDE-VIEW

YOU NEED YOUR OILS (Prepoo)

One thing that our natural hair is soooooooo thirsty for is OIL!!!! Sometimes curly hair can get very dry especially because we often co-wash a lot to keep our hair looking fresh! I have started to give my hair an oil treatment once a week, usually when I do my weekly deep conditioning!!! If you have dry hair, here is something that you can do to moisturize your hair, and you WILL see a difference immediately; you will see more dramatic results to your hair after a few weeks!!!! 

*Section your hair
*Put oil in your hair for each section
*Put your hair in a bun and put a plastic shower cap on; leave on for 20 minutes, more if desired!
*Afterwards, it is good to use a shampoo that has sulfate because it takes away the extra oil that's not needed
*Either deep condition your hair or you can even use hair mayo (hair mayo makes it much softer)
*Rinse out the remainder of oil and deep conditioner or hair mayo
*Put in YOUR favorite leave-in conditioner

ENJOY
