Well…I think they’re more like “medium” twists lol. I’ve been natural for two years now, but I just twisted up my hair for the first time ever this weekend. I actually really like it. Hopefully I’ll be able to wear these for at least a few days and then take them out for a BANGIN twist out! (*Crosses fingers & hopes for the best*) I’ll keep you posted! 🙂

One thing I’ve realized about conditioners since I’ve been natural: the directions are only suggestions! In my experience, using a conditioner differently than is directed on the bottle can be a great thing to try. For example, Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner doesn’t work for me as a rinse out–it makes my hair feel dry. But as a leave-in, it’s awesome!

If you have a rinse-out that dries your hair out after rinsing, try it as a leave-in. If you have a “deep conditioner” that doesn’t quite give you that DEEP conditioning you’re looking for, you can try that as a leave-in as well. I’ve even used my deep conditioning mixture as a leave in just because my hair loves it so much. I have one conditioner that just didn’t work for me as a leave-in, rinse out, deep–NOTHING. So, I added it to a spray bottle with water and glycerin, which made a GREAT refresher spray for my wash-and-go’s. 

I’m not saying EVERY deep and leave-in conditioner can alternatively be used as a leave-in. However, you will never know until you try. Play around with your conditioners! You may make some great discoveries like I did. 🙂

Answer: YES, another natural hair blog. 🙂 I went back and forth for months about whether or not I should start this blog. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to; but I kept asking myself–“Why should I become #19,928,553 in a world where EVERYONE seems to have a blog???

Well, here’s how I feel: I’ve watched a lot of natural hair videos and read a lot of natural hair blogs. I’ve seen a lot of routines and regimens, product reviews and hair tutorials, a lot of which simply don’t work for me or my hair. So, I’ve had to develop my own way of doing my hair that I haven’t really seen any where else. Now, my goal with this blog is NOT to revolutionize natural hair care. Lol..not at all. Really, I just want a centralized location to track my hair growth/progress. I know everyone’s hair is different, but mine seems to be…EXTRA different, so I just want to offer my findings and thoughts on certain subjects as *I* have experienced them. If someone can benefit from my years of agony over perfecting my wash-n-go, GREAT! 🙂 

I am NOT a hairstylist. I am NOT a hair expert. I am not any sort of hair professional. Everything expressed on this blog will just be my experiences and what I’ve learned over the years from various sources. For detailed info about my hair, please click here: The Hair. If you’d like to chat about hair care or have a question about anything I post here, I’m on twitter and instagram: @trulycoilyme.
