Mini Twists Revisited
But on to the point of this post. I decided to mini or micro twist my hair a couple weeks ago. I get inspired every time I see the style on Kinky Curly Queen. LOVE her! So yea...it seems to take longer and longer each time I do it. 6 months ago it took me about 4 hours. 3 months ago, it was 6 hours. This time...10 hours. Yes. TEN freakin hours. It honestly wasn't bad until the 8 and a half 9 hour mark. That's when the cramps set in and the exhaustion. However I was determined to finish lol. I like doing my twists on stretched or blowdried hair. The longer length makes me look less like a 12 year old. (In my opinion) I kept the twists in for 2 weeks. They swelled up so they ended up not being so micro once the humidity hit them. I still thought they were cute, but I was kinda bitter because I could have made them bigger from the start. I know my mistake though. I twisted with Qhemet AOHC which does contain glycerin. I feel like my hair has grown noticeably in those 2 weeks, and so I plan on doing them again before the summer is out. The 2nd best thing about the twists is the awesome twistout. I would have worn the twistout as a week 3 style, but I went swimming.
If you haven't tried the mini twists, give it a go. Honestly, I'm not the most patient person in the world. Get yourself a few good movies and you'll be surprised how time flies.
P.S. This is the last post from my beloved Blackberry. I'm joining team iPhone tomorrow. Its bittersweet.
