My most successful twist out!

Style: Twist Out

Complete: ( 3 days set time) 20 mins-styling

Products Used: Shea Butta Balm ( new to my product line up), Lotta Body setting lotion, Coconut oil

Tools Used: my fingers

Reason for style: Protective Style for the week

Lessons Learned: Ok, I think this is my most successful twist out to date. I applied twist to freshly washed/conditioned hair, spritz lotta body setting lotion ( lightly), applied Shea butter Balm, made 20 twist all over. I left the twist in for 3 days ( recommended by another natural sista). I oiled my hair with coconut oil, then unraveled the twist begging at the roots. It looks nice- I’m not too sure on how to style it, so I kinda just “left” it alone”. I also need to figure out how to “style ” the twist until I’m ready to take them down. Thank Goodness its casual week at work, and I wore a hat- but on normal days, I cant wear a hat- I looked like I was an old “g” from a gang ( not cute). lol..lol..

Side Bar: My skin is a HAUTE DAMN MESS!!!!!!! Since Ive taken down my loc’s I’ve have SERIOUS acne breakouts!!!!! the area is turning black/dark- I’ve went to the dermatologist- they gave me 2 creams (1) a fade cream- but it burns/stings and its not working.. I’m back to doing the OCM method.. But any other suggestions?? My skin has betrayed me 😦

  1. Your hair Looks fabulous! :). for your skin try a few herbal rinses…mixed with a little boiling water, then allow it to cool, here is a few but not limited to.. burdock root said to be the best herb for skin and breakouts, horsetail, and rosemary, white willow bark, lavender, sage, parsle, red clover, elder flowers.I infuse sage to my OCM, it works great!~ hope this helps, take care:)zainab1AuNaturale007.blogspot.com
