Mini Twists!!!

This was done back in May, I’ve just been a little lazy with posting. I am so excited to finally have mini twists. I had some about 2 years ago, but I haven’t had the patience to do them again since then. As usual I recruited one of my friends to help me and we got it done in less than two hours!!!  I washed and conditioned my hair with Trader Joe’s Tea Tree Tingle shampoo and conditioner, applied some Kinky Curly Knot Today and did some light blowdrying to stretch. To twist, I used my shea butter mix (shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, vitamin e, olive oil, castor oil) and some Eco Styler gel (krystal). Once we finished twisting, I found that my hair lacked the volume I desired, so we set the ends on tiny rods. The twists lasted me a little over two weeks, my scalp was so itchy and though I tried cowashing after the first week, it wasn’t enough and I found my twists started to look fuzzy. I still enjoyed them while they lasted though!
