Look at my baby's hair. I remember when she had no hair at the back of her head. Check her out now!!!!!
So she pretty much wears her twists for two weeks at a time. Using a silk scarf every night to tie her hair down, is helping a lot. Her hair is also moisturized every night, so that in the morning, her twists are soft and fluffy. They also stay in place due to wearing the silk scarf.
This past Saturday, 10/22, her hair was co-washed with Curl's Coconut Dream Conditioner. I applied the kimmaytube leave- in and then threaded her hair in four sections. The next day, the threads were taken out. I applied Shea butter on her hair and re-threaded in two sections. When I took those out, her hair was stretched to the maximum as pictured below.

I then twisted her hair as pictured below, using Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade
Her twists came out really soft and shiny
Here is a comparison of her twists this week and the previous ones

Her hair looks much longer this week due to the double stretching. I am excited to see her true length and it is amazing how versatile our hair is.
Stretching with the threading technique is a big part of our regimen. Our hair tend to coil up and tangle easily. However, stretching our hair this way has been very helpful in keeping tangles and hence breakage at bay!!
