- When you put in your shea butter mixture can you indicate how much exactly you put, because I find that when I do my hair I can't lean up on anything afterwards...lol Should it be a dime sized amount or should I not worry about the oil slick!
- Can you show a picture to give any indication to how you part the twists?
- When you say that you "reapply the whipped shea butter" weekly.. do you just rub the butter along the twisted hair? Or untwist, apply shea butter, and then retwist?
- I find when I go to remoisturize my twists, whether I re-wet my hair and apply moisturizer or just apply the moisturizer alone, my twists are sooo frizzy and fuzzy afterwards. How can I prevent this? I have about 6 inches of hair just to give you an idea.
2. After plopping, I undo each jumbo twist and apply a half-dollar-sized amount of whipped shea butter to each section. Then I redo each jumbo twist and airdry (in a satin scarf) until 80-90% dry. (Time: several hours.) I suggest applying enough butter to seal your hair and not so much to coat it.
|Plop, moisturize, then airdry in jumbo twists under scarf.|
3. Once airdried 80-90% of the way, I begin to twist my hair. I take down a jumbo twist and begin parting. I find it easiest to part a horizontal section and then grab-and-go within that section. I make smaller parts along the perimeter ... larger parts within the perimeter. (Twist time: 1-3 hrs, depending on size.) If needed, a small amount of whipped shea butter is reapplied to the ends of the twists only.
|Part horizontally, then grab and go.|
|Smaller parts near nape. (Not too small though.)|
|Long, slender parts along hairline. (Too small = bad for my edges.)|
