Twists? Advice

GLITTERnCURLSGLITTERnCURLS Posts: 7Registered Users
Hey, guys. I need some advice.

Basically, I work as a live-in HHA for the weekend. I obviously don't have to do my hair at all. During this time, how should I be taking care of it?

Usually I just keep my hair in a pony tail... but it's all frizzy, dry, and wild. I'm trying to grow it out, too. So I figure I should keep it moisturized since I'm inside for 2 days straight.

I was thinking of doing twists? Also, how DO you do twists? & products that could keep my hair moisturized during these days?

Thanks!!

    i tend to do my twists on dry, stretched hair. Lately i've been making them medium sized for ease and they look good for at least a week (my scalp get's frizzy after a while) and then I could rock a twist out for fun. I use a heavy moisturizer like Qhemet Biologics heavy cream to twist with no addition water on stretched hair, then add coconut oil or castor oil to seal the style. I oil the ends daily or use a pomade, moisturizing with a light leave in first or a moisture spritz (usually every other day). I oil my scalp every other day (this is optional!). I get moist bouncy hair and a shiny soft twist out! Little hair fall

    As my hair has gotten longer, I have found that braiding my hair at the root then twisting the rest of my hair keeps the frizz down to a minimum and I also twist with a leave in and some castor oil. That's pretty much all I do and as the days or weeks go by I butter my ends with Shea Butter.
