Tresses Thursday 4/20/17

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 20170416_113003.jpghave 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.

Hello all! Welcome to Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. In this week’s post I demonstrate how quickly my hair dries and shrinks right after washing. I used to hate that my hair was so poofy but now I view it as my awesome mane.

Hello all! Welcome to Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. For this week’s post I have two simple braids in the back and twisted the hair in the front into two side buns.

 So, how did I make this hair style? First, I washed my hair using Andalou hair products and afterwards used Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner . Secondly, I used a thick-tooth comb to comb out my hair as well as distribute the leave in conditioner thoroughly. Thirdly, I part the hair into four sections, parting in such a way so that more hair is in the back two sections than the front two. Next, I twist both front sections and one back section in to temporary buns so the hair can stay sectioned. Then, I take the free back section and braid it. I do the same to the other side. Now that the back is finished, I start on the front. I untwist a front bun, comb it out, then begin to twist the hair along my head back towards my ear. Once to the ear, I twist the remaining hair into a bun on the side that looks coiled. I repeat the process for the last temporary bun, twisting the hair along my head towards my ear, then twisting it into a coil bun.

And voila, there you have it!
