My hair care schedule:
At the start of the week (Sunday or Monday) – WASH and CONDITION, and after rinsing while my hair is still wet two strand TWIST my hair using the coconut oil. I cover with a scarf and leave the twists in till they are dry or the next time I go out (the next morning or wear a hat or scarf if I have errands to run until I take it out for work that night)
To take the twists out- I re wet my hair and use the gel to take out the twists. Just one or two fingertips of gel per twist dependng on how big the twist is and take out by pulling twists in a downward motion- DON’T PULL THE TWISTS APART- IT WILL CAUSE FRIZZ.
I finish off with a nickel sized amount of hair polisher and finger that through my hair.
I only twist my hair every other night- just bc I’m lazy. On my off days I just re wet my hair and use the moisturizer which is a curl refresher and add a lil hair polisher.
For accessories I use hair ribbons or flowers like the ones above. But also LOVE the headbands from Target.
In the middle of the week (Thursday)- I co-wash (which basically means to wash with conditioner instead of shampoo) and start the process again.
Soon I will add pics of the process.
