HAIR’S THE DEAL

I read every every comment, I unfortunately don’t always get the chance to respond as much as I would like to. When I get to the computer- I’m trying to put up new posts and lately i just haven’t had as much time as I would love to devote. So I feel horrid, that anyone would think that I don’t care about all of you who visit and read this blog. Maybe it’s because I don’t fancy myself a hair expert, I’ve shied away from talking too much about my hair (the good days or the bad hair days). I have made a semi-effort here, here and here to share products I like and my regimen. 
So when I saw this comment from Anonymous, it made me think about whether I’ve inadvertently overlooked something I should be and could easily be sharing. 
Why so little all the time on the hair products, styling methods, etc.??? It’s obvious readers are thirsty to see how you achieve your twistouts, etc. We’re not asking you to devote the ENTIRE website to this, but DANG, at least throw us a bone. 
Answer: Anyways, so here goes. I gave a similar spiel on Instagram, but just wanted to share it again here.
Here’s the deal on my defined twists- start w/ conditioned and wet hair. For each individual twist, I use pea size amount of Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie + small pump (not a full pump) of organix coconut milk mousse. If hair feels dry, spray water- we want this sucker wet. Try to keep both strands about the same size. I don’t prescribe to any particular twisting technique, but I tend to twist more on the tight side rather than relaxed or loose. While a gel might give firmer hold- I find the mousse gives a healthy bouncy hold and hair looks fuller. Also my ends might get a little extra love with argan/ coconut oil and I trim a lil’ everytime I twist- I’m not going for length so doesn’t bother me. Oh- one last thing, the better your hair comes out after the wash, the better the twists- so your shampoo/co-wash/ condition steps are just as important. I had a bad conditioner experience and my twists looked dry and dead. 
I hope I’ve been able to address any hair questions and I appreciate all you guys patience with me and that u keep coming back- means the world. I know I’ve got so many bigger ideas for this space and if I could only ind the time. Thanks to all my extra special and extra loyal readers.
Peace.

    Thanks for sharing more info about your hair. I had dread locks for 9 years and chopped them 2 years ago, your fro is certainly an inspiration. I'm def going to try your twist out method I often end up with frizzy twist outs. Do you sit under the dryer at all? By the way you truly are a gem…intelligent, witty, stylish and beautiful.

    I Love your hair and this post. I would only add a short disclaimer. . . since not all of us have the same hair texture, Ladies should not expect the same results. Just an FYI. . .

    wow, talk about definition! I almost drooled! you didn't specify how long you keep the twists in for.
    The question from the reader sounds desperate, lol!
    thanks for sharing your tips though
