Last Wash Day With My Senegalese Twists!

I promise I'm like a kid in a candy store right now! I seriously have been missing my hair sooooooo much! The plan is to remove my Senegalese twists on Friday/Saturday. It totally depends on if the boo and I decide to go see The Best Man Holiday :) Either way I knew that my scalp needed one more good washing before I removed my senegalese twists. Because Jillian (as in Jillian Michaels) and I have been working out heavily together my new growth was super dry from sweating. The last thing I want when taking down a long term protective style is dry crunchy new growth...can we say breakage city?! So in order to combat this issue I used my normal braid washing routine, which you can check out here and here. Of course I reached for my beloved Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo to get the job done. What I love about this Shampoo is that it gets my hair squeaky clean while leaving my hair super soft and moisturized! Because I am removing the install this weekend and have a MEGA deep conditioning session planned I skipped conditioning my hair today.  Instead after drying my hair under my awesome Salon Hooded dryer (Shout out to EbonyCPrincess and her Protective Styling Challenge!) I settled for my Giovanni Direct Leave In. I moisturized my new growth thoroughly with my Giovanni and then sealed with a mixture of Castor & grapeseed oil. I can't even begin to describe how soft and moisturized my new growth is! As for the length of my hair, I will spritz it with my braid spray daily. The countdown to removing my braid install begins!


  1. I know how you feel. When my hair has been 'hidden' for a while, I get all excited when it's takedown time. hahaha
