My Hair this week:small two strand twists

I have to admit that I love to play with my hair. That s not good if I am trying to retain length. In an effort to ensure that I keep my hands off my hair, I decided to twist my hair. I know..
 I did say that I was on a cornrow challenge. Well, I just got tired of updos. To be quite honest, I was beginning to get bored with my hair. So, to prevent myself from doing something drastic to my hair, I opted for a hairstyle totally different from all the updos I have been doing for the past two months.

 My twists are really small. The last time I twisted my hair this small was almost two years ago. I did not know what I was doing then in terms of twisting my hair. I used to borrow hair from the other strand, which we all know that is a recipe for breakage. That's why I could never retain any length.On wednesday, I washed and deep conditioned my hair, using Curls Ecstasy mixed with some Ayurvedic Herbs, Honey and Olive Oil,  I twisted my hair with my shea butter mix which my hair loves. I am trying to get rid of my colored ends, which are almost completely gone. I do not do regular trimmings. I only trim when it is needed.

I twisted on dry hair and then misted my ends when the twists were completed. I like curly ends which I can only get from wetting the ends. My hair shrinks a lot, so I will be using the threading method to stretch my twists later on as the twists get older. I plan on keeping these in till the end of the month.
