To achieve maximum curl definition, maximum moisturizing, and minimum shrinkage I use Knot Today Leave-In and Kinky Curly Curling Custard. Wearing mini twists makes the $60 I will spend on the custard and two bottles of leave in per month a bargain. I dilute 1/3rd of the leave in with spring water and spray it on my hair each night and morning to re-activate the custard. Therefore there is no reason for me to keep applying the custard after the twists have been put in.
|My twists re-wet after 10 days of wearing them. Once they dried I fell even more in luv with them. I never had to re-twist. I applied metal duck bill clips on the roots and tied my hair down with a silk scarf...|
...And the fun part is all the cute styles I tried once it dried...like this jazzy up do using another fave product of mine for definition Cantu:
|I gathered my twists above the crown of my head and applied my clip careful not to get my kynxx in the clasp...|
|and just let them hang...|
|I can even rock them without feeling like I have to conform to corporate standards of beauty.|
I took my twists out to DC with Henna. I could have worn them much longer than 14 days and intend on trying to keep them in for 21 days this next go round. I began my Growth Journey 12/17/2010 shown in a previous post. My goal is for my kynxx to be collar bone length or CBL by the end of this year...keeping my fingers crossed. I decided not to stretch my hair on any of the length checks I do moving forward. I will be showing before and after pics of my hair to chart my progress. Look out for my next progress check on 3/17/2011!
