- Detangled my hair with my fingers and a wide toothed comb and put my hair into calabar braids.
- Clarified twice with Ors Creamy aloe shampoo. I needed a clean scalp since I won’t be washing my hair for another 2 – 3 weeks.
- Deep conditioned with Organics Hair mayonnaise and Ors replenishing conditioner for 1hr without heat.
- Rinsed with cool water to seal my cuticles.
- Air dried till my hair was 70% dry and applied my moisturizer; Dark and Lovely moisturizer and sealed with coconut oil.
- Put my hair into 4 loose twists and tied with a silk scarf.
- The next day I loosened the twists and sectioned my hair into 5 parts. Using the Invisible root method, I installed the jumbo twists.
I love how light the twists feel and they certainly look like havana twists which as I said earlier was my first impression when I saw the hair. My only problem is the twists come in just one colour for now – Black. It would be nice if they start producing other colours.
I am proud of the fact that Nigerians have started being innovative and also how affordable this hair is. I’ve had the twists on for a week and intend to leave them on for 3 weeks before taking them out to avoid manipulation. For the next 2 weeks I intend to moisturise and seal daily and redo the front twists to avoid tension on my edges.
That’s all ladies…what been going on with your hair??
