I pretty much have a set regimen for my hair....
Fridays- Wash, Deep Condition, Twist
Saturdays- Wear twists or wrap them up in a scarf or tam
Sundays- Twist Out
Mondays- 2nd day Twist Out
Tuesdays- Curly Afro on 3rd day Twist Out hair OR puff
Wednesdays- Co-Wash and wear a puff or wash and go
Thursdays- 2nd day puff or wash and go
If I'm wearing a twist out, I re-twist each night, and I do the baggy method every other night to keep my hair super moisturized. To baggy, I very lightly spritz (2-3 sprays) my hair with my water, glycerin, leave in conditioner, and lavender oil mixture and then I place a plastic bag over my hair and I put my satin bonnet over the plastic bag.
This little routine works pretty well, except on the Fridays we host a small group at our home, I don't necessarily want people to see me looking like Aunt Jemima as I deep condition and dry wet twists. I don't mind terrorizing the public at large, but I won't do that to people I know personally. Also, my hair is getting longer and more of a chore to wear out. I have to combat knots and very long detangling sessions...so not cool! I'm also searching for more protective styles.
I don't really care to wear my hair in twists, and I don't know how my hair would look braided into a style. I don't want to look like an oversized kid. I really don't have enough hair for a pony tail, but for the second time, I've forced the little hair that I do have into one. My hair in the front is much shorter than in the back, so at this point, I have to get really creative when trying to make a pony tail. I find this quite funny, because I used to make lot's of laughs about people who would do such a thing. It's funny how God brings things full circle.
Now the laughs on me!
Do you do anything different to prepare your hair for fall and winter?
