Maintaining Kinky Twists
I wrap my hair every night in a satin bonnet if I’m wearing it down to protect the curls and protect my hair or I’ll use my satin scarf if I’m going to put my hair up in a ponytail. I slick my edges down with 100% Aloe Vera gel. This is also included in my current products video.
I keep my hair moisturize by using my leave in spray or leave in conditioners:
Some awesome leave in that I have used and love are:
•Aussie moist leave in spray
•Oyin Handmade’s Juices and Berries Spray
•Wonder Eight oil spray
•My Homemade Water spray of 1 part vegetable glycerin and 2 parts water
•Sometimes I will just use water and seal with a light oil
You have to use leave in to keep your hair moisturized, moisture is very important! It’s one of the keys to healthy hair growth.
I know that there are other braid sprays out there but I have tried a few that I just did not like. Some of the ingredients were not good for black hair regardless if you are natural, relaxed, or transitioning.
I have also spent countless hours reading and watching videos on braid spray products and I did not like the reviews and results on others who have kinky twists or braids. Two of which stood out where African royal braid spray and African braid spray.
I have a sensitive scalp and I did not want to use just any product on my hair and cause irritation. So I choose to not repurchase or buy the product.
