I know TWA’s can sometimes be a pain because there isn’t much you can do with them. It’s either twist-out or…twist-out. Yes, there are different versions of the look you can achieve, such as the three strand twist out, the braid-out, or even Bantu knot-outs. I’ve tried all of these, but the two and three-strand twist outs have to be my favorite looks to showcase. I’m going to show you all, step-by-step, how I get my best TWA twist-out. (more…)
When it comes to protective styling, I have a very hard time choosing what I want to go for, whether it be twist outs, box braids, bantu-knots, flat-twists, etc. My hair is super short now in the front so I always have trouble finding cute protective styles that will flatter my face. I started YouTubing women who struggled with having natural short hair and there is one way of protecting my hair that I completely fell in love with. (more…)
I think we can all agree that one of the major problems with having natural hair is styling. Taking care of natural hair can be very hard and tedious; or maybe it’s just me. However, over time as you learn more about your hair, you figure out what works for you and what doesn’t. some styles look better or are easier to maintain on certain textured hairs than others. So, we often cannot simply mimic styles that we see on others or online. I’m not saying it’s always impossible to get your hair to look a certain way but you may have to do a thing or two in addition to what the other person did, depending on your hair texture. (more…)

I have decided to start doing protective styling on my hair. I have been wearing my hair down a lot, so I am making sure I am retaining length. I will be doing mini twists for the next three months and re-twisting them every three to four weeks. I have also changed my hair regimen to accommodate this challenge. I am going to go through the steps to this challenge.
- Wash hair. I washed my hair using the As I Am Coconut Cleansing Conditioner. I really like this product because it cleanses my hair just as well as shampoo, but does not strip my hair of its moisture. Even though it is a conditioner it serves the same purpose as shampoo, I also used Aussie’s Moisturizing Conditioner. I use this product to help soften my hair. I do not leave it in, because I have a leave-in conditioner that I use. This works well with whatever I use to cleanse my hair by adding moisture.
- Apply leave-in conditioner. I use Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave-in Conditioner. This product really leaves my hair soft. It helps to prevent breakage and damages to my hair. I occasionally use Paul Mitchell’s Leave-in Conditioner, but I am using Shea Moisture for the mini twist-out challenge.
- Apply styling product. I made my own mixture for the mini twists. I mixed black Jamaican castor oil with shea butter. This was my first time making this mixture. I usually mix olive oil with the shea butter. I like the black Jamaican castor oil better. My hair is really soft. I have had the twists in my head for four days now and my hair is still very soft and moisturized. I have not had to apply anymore product, since I twisted my hair. I applied the mixture in sections, because I wanted to make sure each strand of the hair was covered. I made sure my ends were moisturized as well. I applied it to the big sections and re-applied as I twisted my hair. It left my twists soft and bouncy.
- Twist the hair. I have about fifty twists in my head. I divided my hair into eight sections. I took smaller sections within those eight in order to twist. I did two strand twists by wrapping two very small sections around each other.
I am loving the protective styling so far. I wrap my hair every night with a silk scarf. When I take it off in the mornings, my hair is perfectly fine and I do not have to do anything with them. When I was wearing my hair down, it dried out by the end of the day. The twists are really maintaining the moisture well. I am going to rub the mixture in the palm of my hand and apply it to my hair every week.
I encourage you to try this challenge. Have you ever challenged yourself to try something new in order to help the growth of your hair?
