Step 1: Start off on pre-washed and detangled hair. This is very important because this will help the process go faster and will prevent from damaging your hair.
Step 2: Section your hair off into workable sections. I like to section my hair in to 5 to 5 sections. Two in the front and 3 sections in the back.
Step 3: Start off with one of the sections. Part that section into small pieces that you want to twist. Apply the leave in conditioner first then the curling cream. Make sure these products are applied form roots to tips.
Step 4: Begin 2 strand twisting to the scalp. If you do not know how to 2 strand twist to the scalp no worries twist your hair in plats. I like to twist to the scalp it creates more definition to my hair.
Step 5: Apply more curling cream to the ends if necessary. Apply perm rod to the end of the hair
Step 6: Repeat this process until your whole head is twisted.
Step 7: Apply thermal shield if you will be sitting under the hooded dryer.
Step 8: The take down process!! Remove all perm rods. Apply Argon oil or any oil that you like to your fingers. This helps keep down the frizz.
Step 9: Gently take loose your twist.
Step 10: Fluff and pick out roots with a wide tooth comb.
There you have it the ultimate twist out in 10 easy steps!!! Enjoy happy Hair Divas!
Todays blog is about how to deep condition your hair. I have several deep conditioning regimes depending on what my hair needs! This method is very basic and easy and I use it as often as once a month. So lets dive into the goodness!
- Edens all natural deep conditioner/ or your favorite deep conditioner(3-4 scoops depending on hair length)
- Olive oil (1 teaspoon)
- Tea Tree Oil (3-4 squirts)
- Coconut oil (1 teaspoon)
- Deep conditioning cap
- applicator brush
- Cantu Shea butter-wash out conditioner (you will need this to co-wash your hair after you have rinsed out the deep conditioner)
- Mix the ingredients together!!
Step 1: Wash your hair thoroughly. I use the Cantu Shea Butter natural shampoo and conditioner. This is a good time to detangle your hair and put it into 4 sections. This will help when applying the deep conditioner.
Step 2: Towel dry your hair, leaving it damp. Now take down one of the sections and apply the deep conditioner. I like to use the applicator brush for my roots. make sure to apply the conditioner to the tips of your hair and rake through. Now you should have 4 equal parts with conditioner.
Step 3: Once you have applied the deep conditioner to all of your head, apply the deep conditioning cap to you head for 15-30 minutes depending on your regime. I like to leave it on for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Also if you re not in a hurry try sitting under a bonnet hair dryer, it allows the oils and conditioner to penetrate the shafts of your hair.
Step 4: Rinse out the deep conditioner thoroughly. Do Not shampoo your hair. Shampooing will remove the soft oils that were just applied to your hair.
Step 5: Co-wash your hair. I like to do this just to seal my hair. This leaves my hair feeling extra soft. To cows you hair use any rinse out conditioner to your liking. apply conditioner massage in and rinse out.
Results: Your hair should be shinny, extra soft and light weight. After deep conditioning your hair should be more manageable for any style. I decided to straighten my hair. The deep conditioner allowed me to use less heat and to easily flat iron my hair.
