Hair Diary || Back to Protective Styling ... But With Heat and Jumbo Twists?
So, after another summer of going wild (hair-wise, that is), it is time to get back into protective style mode. However, there will be some changes from my usual small/medium twists on air dried hair. Why?
- I want to see my length more. My twists shrink a lot, if you haven't noticed already.
- I want to be able to switch from a protective style to a loose style and back in one day. After spending hours to twist my hair, undo-ing those babies prior to 3-4 weeks is seemingly wasteful.
- I want shorter detangling sessions. Long-term protective styles equate to hours of detangling while short-term protective styles can mean 45 minutes or less. However, the trade-off is more manipulation (re-styling) per month.
