MANE Events – Protective Style Twist Updo

Last night, I decided to wash my hair for the week… or two and I created this protective style twist updo.  I used my ABS, conditioned with Tresseme Naturals/Garnier Fructis (For Color Treated Hair) and detangled with my Tangle Teezer.  My hair was ready for whatever, so I applied Giovanni Direct Leave-In to it, and twisted it with Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and my whipped Shea butter.  I slept in loose twists last night and pinned it up this AM for a twist updo style.  I think I may keep this style for the week as it will be cold (so I don’t want my ends exposed) and it is a easy style to upkeep (wrap and go).
How are you wearing your hair today?
  • I LOVE THIS! It is very nice! So I used the abs in my hair last night and I had a hard time getting a good lather bc the soap breaks up so much. What can i do?

  • Benaja, here is a recipe I found for making your ABS into an actual shampoo. I have used this method before experimenting in the kitchen, but this is an actual recipe that you can follow.
