Hi and welcome to another Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. This week’s post is about a very simple, easy hair style that just takes patience and two mirrors.
First, I washed my hair using something new, Nature’s Gate. I used their Aloe Vera + Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Shampoo and their Henna + Avocado Shine Enhancing Conditioner, which I believe they do not make anymore because it is no longer listed on their website. What interested me so much in this line of hair care is that their shampoo and conditioner had specific vital ingredients listed on the front of the bottle.
I still used Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner and combed my hair with a thick-toothed comb to distribute it thoroughly through my hair. Then I twisted all of my hair in to a low bun at the base of my next for a few days.
After a couple of days I unwrapped the bun, and parted the hair into six sections. I used a hand held mirror to make sure the parts were straight and even. From right to left, I braided each section along my head.
At an organic market I was able to find an all-in-one Pure Daily
Moisturizer called Booda Butter. I have been using it for last couple of weeks to twist my dreads and let me tell you it is fantastic! For awhile I was just using water and the Direct Leave-In Conditioner, which wasn’t enough to have the hair lock. This Booda Butter boasts that there are 50 ways to use it. It is extremely useful, versatile, and a little goes a long way.
