Silky Kinky Afro Twists!


Hey ladies hope you are all doing well. It’s been a minute since I have been on here *clears cobwebs* life happened; but I am back now. Anyway this wash day post is almost two weeks late in fact I should be getting ready to do my twists wash day but it’s all good. So I decided to get a protective style done after almost seven months of wearing my hair out and got afro kinky twists installed. The plan was to henna first as I always do before installing a long term protective style but that never happened and considering I had previously hennaed a little over a month before installation I just went ahead and got my hair done. Since time and other factors were not exactly on my side I simply washed my hair first with blackshampoo then a two in one regular shampoo/conditioner, applied my leave ins, had my scalp oiled, new growth stretched by blow drying and then proceeded to get the twists professionally installed. I figured since my braid spray of choice is the Crème of Nature Strength and Shine leave in conditioner my hair would be conditioned at least three times a week at most.

I used this brand of hair *see photo below* and really loved it. It’s soft and silky just like it says on the pack not rough like some other afro kinky/Marley hair brands. I initially wanted to get an extra pack but my stylist said the three would be enough and she was right, we even had some left over hair enough for maybe five or six twists. Four packs would have been too bulky even though the hair is light but it would have been cumbersome when it came to styling so the three packs worked out just fine in the end. I had them done in a medium size and hope to keep them in for as long as I can; ideally two months and will get the hairline redone at the four week mark if I keep them in for that long. I plan to wash every two-three weeks depending on my schedule and level of activity like workouts etc. Maintenance is very simple braid spray at least thrice a week and oil scalp at least once or as needed. That being said I am really loving this hair and plan to get it done again at some point in the year; the hair can be reused several times.

Love them!
