hi, ladies! happy friday!! any cool plans for the weekend? you know me - just swimming tomorrow and then brunch plans on sunday. team brunch!! :-) my hair is in medium twists. i finally embraced (even though i knew this) the fact that my hair thrives in twists. i will be doing them from now until the end of the challenge...with a couple days of rest in between installs. i just need to get the size right for my swimming! too small produces crazy tangles...and too big is too much manipulation to retwist twice a week....any suggestions???
@nubien, yes! the problem is that it is such a terrific moisturizer and the properties were amazing. i couldn't pass it up...and i completely blanked on the protein sensitivity stuff. but, i found out! lol i have products with avocado oil in them that feel amazing so i think it's when the oil is used by itself...and when you have other protein prods in your rotation that you are using in conjunction with the oil.
@naturalessence, does the plastic cap help with preventing water from getting in? for me, the ends of my hair get wet and sometimes the sides...the majority of it is dry, but i def have to wash after. i went swimming with my minitwists and i was able to wash in those. i know that cornrows are different and i would try to make sure that they were thoroughly rinsed, shampooed, and conditioned after swimming. if you don't think you can really do that with them in, then i would take them out and make them looser (so that you can insert your fingers to thoroughly clean/condition) or use twists under your wig. i think that it is more important to protect your hair before you get in the pool, than to treat it after. So, put on tons of coconut/olive oils (oils that penetrate the shaft) and then a swim cap. i also use the shea moisture shampoos and conditioners...i dc each time i swim. time consuming/annoying yes, but i refuse to have my hair suffer because of the chlorine. i love swimming!
@catrice, super cute style! it looks so natural!
@kunoichi, i have heard of sulfur doing things like that so I would not be surprised!
