So I made up a concoction using Mainly Aloe Vera juice and Glycerin. There is some water and a little bit of Kinky Curly Knot today
This mixture keeps my ends so soft and helps them remain detangled. I usually spray a small section of hair with the concoction, seal with oil and
In the picture above, I used Curl's Control Paste as the styler.That stuff is heavy so I try not to be heavy- handed with it. I applied it to the individual twists focusing more on the ends.
So I make about 18 twists. I then divide them into two sections( left and right) and band them up to keep them stretched. Because they are banded up, the twists are never dry when I take them down. This is how I get the "Wash and Go" look. I experience some shrinkage but not a lot since I stretch my twists. The Glycerin also keeps moisture in my hair giving me that wet look, even though my hair is not wet.
I re- twist at bedtime, but I wet my hands first before twisting, so my hair could be pliable for twisting. I do not spray water on my hair directly, I only wet my hands, so my hair can be slightly damp. The water re-activates the products so there is no need for piling up products only to reap product build-up in my hair.
