Wash Day!

Washed day couldn't have gotten here any sooner! The pic on the top left is what my twists looked like after a few nights of not covering my strands before retiring to bed.  I would tell myself, "I don't need to tie it up tonight cause I'm gonna wash it tomorrow."  This was going on for four nights in a row!  Ugh!!!

As I mentioned in a previous post I have been wearing my strands in fat twists since the beginning of summer.  Also, I recently decided to make things even easier on myself on wash days by washing and conditioning my hair while it is still in the fat twists!
After the hair (twists) have been washed and conditioned, I begin to re-twist each twist after gently detangling with my fingers followed by a comb through to smooth strands prior to twisting.
This wash method has worked wonderfully for me.  Detangling my strands is a breeze (a plus) and I can complete detangling and re-twisting all of my twists with minimal hair loss, which includes
hair loss due to shedding (another plus)!

This method is a keeper for me and so will wearing fat twists...until I get bored with the fat twists that is.  BTW, I've come up with a new way wearing my fat twists and will post the new style soon!

  2. Hey Asha!!! Your hair's looking good. I haven't worn my phatty twists out in public since going natural this second time around, but this post has me inspired again.

    Did you use your hair products for the wash and style? If so, which ones did you use?
