So, this past Sunday I twisted my hair up. I wanted to wear the twists just hanging but, I wasn't really feeling the look. So, on Monday I pinned one side of the twists over and wore them side swept. I had plans to curl the ends and wear it like that on Tuesday but, again I wasn't feeling the look. So, I went to my trusty twist updo.
I am going to try to keep these twists in for 2 weeks. That is a long time for me! But, that is the point of protective styles--not to manipulate the hair.
Below are the twos styles I have worn so far:
This is the side-swept twists.
This is the twist-updo. (I forgot to take of my glasses in the second shot).
Here's what I did:
1. I dry twisted the hair using Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel
2. I oiled my scalp with essential oils.
3. I oiled my hair with EVOO.
