I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how my hair was styled this past weekend and wanted to come “share my secrets”… well, they aren’t really secrets, but here is what I did:
I styled my hair in my Signature Twistout Style. You can find the video here:
I shampooed and conditioned using Trader Joe’s Nourishing Spa Shampoo and Conditioner. The ingredients aren’t “the best”, but this is the only thing I have on hand right now.
I used Giovanni Direct Leave-In on t-shirt dried hair, and styled my hair using Shea Moisture and Shea butter. I also set my hair using blue perm rods and a few purple perm rods. I prefer the smaller curl, so I’d recommend using all small rods (no larger than white). They last WAY LONGER than the larger curl.
I let my hair set over night. The next morning, I removed the rollers and with jojoba oil on my fingers, separated the twists. I fluffed like crazy.
To preserve, I pineappled my hair at night and fluffed in the morning (well, really… I just shook my hair back and forth). That is IT. I wanted something that I didn’t have to worry about too much while I was enjoying my weekend. I also get a thrill out of wearing my hair like that and bringing up the side of my hair! People are always surprised to see that my sides are STILL SHAVED.
I hope that answered some questions.
