Mini Twists! (After 3 Days of Twisting)

Thursday, January 12, 2012

This week I finally completed the 3-day-long process of putting in mini twists. I started this process shortly after taking my hair to the spa this past weekend (see my previous post) and broke up the twisting over the course of three days - twisting for about 3-4 hours per day. I guess I could have buckled down and knocked it out in one day over the weekend, but I just wasn't in the mood to drive myself insane. Besides, I usually feel the need to take about 80 million breaks while twisting, aaaaand I twist really slow, so realistically I probably wouldn't be able to do it in a single day anyway. Check out pics below of my daily progression each day of twisting as well as the final results!

Since I was twisting over the course of a few work days, I twisted the hair closest to my hairline first and worked my way up toward the middle/crown area. Twisting this way allowed me to put my hair up into a neat bun for work each day to hide the areas that were still untwisted.

Since the beginning of the year I've been eager to put my hair into some kind of twisted style because I wanted to give my hair a rest from manipulation. I've been in one of those "tired-of-dealing-with-my-hair-right-now" moods that I seem to get into, like once a month. This time however, I was curious about trying mini-twists in particular. Interestingly enough, the size of my twists seem to keep getting smaller each time I've done twists since my first successful attempt last year in June. So mini twists seemed inevitable. I'll have to see how crazy and annoying the take-down will be (because you know it will be....sigh). But I must admit that putting them in wasn't so bad - especially since I broke up the process over a few days, worked in small sections, and most importantly - did not deny myself from breaking or stopping when I felt like it. I also really like the look of the mini twists and the fact that it falls and moves like loose hair. I'm also excited to try some mini twist protective styles while I have them in.

Once again, I plan to try to keep these in for at least 2 weeks - but I would love to see if I could stretch it to 3 or 4 weeks. But knowing me and my high maintenance scalp, I will probably take these babies out sooner than I plan (what else is new?) so that I can wash my hair. We'll see though. Game on, twists!
