A new series documenting my journey to longer, healthier hair. It'll take coconut oil, twists, low manipulation, and internal health to get there! I've got 30 weeks.
I'm wrapping up week #1 of a new set of twists. The other night, I did my usual wash routine and airdried overnight. Yesterday I redid the perimeter of my twists.
The twist challenge started on Tuesday. My goal for the end of the challenge (December 22) is to grow and retain two inches of hair.
I'm starting slow on the green smoothie challenge but I'll fix that. I made a couple banana blueberry smoothies without the green. (The full recipe can be found here.) This weekend, I'll get down to the "real" green smoothies by adding spinach, kale, basil, etc.
**The style above is a twist fishtail with a twistout pompadour on my hair. To create the pompadour, I undid about five twists in the front and pinned down the resulting twistout. The fishtail is simply a french braid created by overbraiding (not underbraiding) and tucking the end under. The funky look is great for a night out without having to take down all the twists. When I'm done with the look, I just retwist those five sections in front.
