Chicago…what an amazing city full of beautiful skylines, diverse people, amazing events…and some of the coldest wind chills one can endure. With the cold comes dry hair and even though we haven’t received much snow yet here in the Windy City my hair surely gets the hint that the WINTER is here. If you’ve checked out my FaceBook Fan Page you are aware that I’ve been toying with what type of protective style to try…with natural hair there are so many choices!
I finally decided with the help of a few ladies and my love for no fuss hair. I started out with a good shampoo and conditioner using Original Moxie’s Get Clean No Foam Shampoo and the Intense Quench Deep Conditioner.
Right after every wash I always use conditioner to help detangle my hair without causing breakage. Once detangled I braid each section so once it’s rinsed I do not have to worry about it tangling up again. YES, I rinse my hair with the braids still in tact. If you would like to see more information on my wash routine please check out the video HERE.
So…for my style I chose….MINI TWISTS!!!! Okay, not so mini – Mini Twists are more like it.
I am completely in love with the versatility of this style and how easy they are to put in. I decided to make each twist a tad larger than usual to save a bit on time. These twists literally took me about 2.5 hrs and that was only because I was chatting with family, walking around, eating, watching the Chicago Bulls win over the Lakers…I mean I was multi tasking.
The awesome products that I used will not be revealed just yet. I would like to share with you all a review on the items along with a special surprise.
