Usually once a week, maybe twice. And then wash every 7-10 days.How many times yall moisturize?
Wash in sections and seal with it in sections. And yes , I immediately bow dry and twist, or retwist after washing.I don't want to be a straight-haired natural, but my hair is too thick and dense to handle after washing and trying to twist.
I thought I was frustrated with it because it was a lot to deal with with work but after being home, I've realized it's just a challenge.
Maybe I can just blow-dry and twist, don't have to do a hard press, since I don't want to make my hair straight, just more manageable.
How are the rest of you naturals working with your hair after washing? Immediate twist or blow-drying? I'm so frustrated with my hair right now.
I'm going on 2.5 years and no flat ironing (I don't even own one or it's lost in my house lol). I'm in wash and gos 90% of the time. My hair gets boring fast when it's straight. After 2-3 days I'm over it. And while I've never had heat damage it's always a concern.Have any of you ladies ever imposed a no flat iron ban on yourself...for a very long time? Say more than 1 year? Maybe like 5 years or so? If so, please share details.
I wash in the shower. it's more comfortable for me there -- i.e. more space. I love warm water for my hair. When I use cold water my hair feels rough.Do you ladies wash your hair while showering or in the sink? I feel like washing it while showering, may cause one to use warm-hot water, which dries out the hair. Whereas when you wash it over the sink / tub, you have more control over the temperature of the water. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Are you talking about twists and braids with your own hair? If you wear medium to large twists/braids, you could try bantu knotting the ends.Am I the only person feeling like twists or braids are chewing up your ends? It feels like too much manipulation.
I almost want to cut my hair beyond the damaged ends and spend a year without those styles just to see if I retain length better. But no idea what styles I would do instead.
Yes, on my own hair. It’s something I noticed a while ago after I stopped wearing wng and started wearing twists/braids more.Are you talking about twists and braids with your own hair? If you wear medium to large twists/braids, you could try bantu knotting the ends.
Thank you, I’ll try thisYes.
I tend to wear more twists than braids and for years it was mostly mini twists. I'd keep my hair in a bun. I haven't noticed any ill effects on my ends.
