Ok, a personal twists challenge is ON like DONKEY KONG. I've OFFICIALLY challenged myself to rock the mess outta twists the rest of this winter.
So far, they are doing right by me. I don't have to do anything to my hair in the morning except mist, fluff and go and no dry and greasy hair has been in this house since I added them back to my (winter) regimen. Right now, I'm all about leavin my hair alone for the rest of the winter.
My Twists Challenge Guidelines Are as Follows:
- I will wear my twists for and re-do them every 2 weeks
- I will condition and wash my hair every 2 weeks
- I will continue to henna once a month
- Challenge will officially end April 1st
Sounds like I'm back on the Crown & Glory Method tip, right? Betcha bottom dollar, I am. My hair has spoken and I've listened. I'll be twisting with my shea pudding and moisturizing daily with a different mist recipe: water, aloe vera gel/juice, and castor oil. I've chosen castor oil over my usual jojoba oil b/c it's thicker and I feel that will help me retain even more moisture since the air right now is so cold and dry.
Here are starting pics of what my twists are looking like in January:

So who's with me? I hope some of you will join me (lemme know!). I think we'll be pleasantly surprised come April with what our hair is lookin like. I will provide updates monthly.
