Hey y'all! I was talking to my sister the other day, and I asked her what she thought folks would be interested in reading about on a hair blog. One of her biggest challenges with natural hair is finding styles that will last multiple days-- she's got a super busy schedule and can't be bothered with daily co-washing and styling. She finds that her twist-outs don't last more than a day, and that she ends up with flat smooshy hair after one night.

I love this routine because I 'do' my hair once (two-strand twisting on freshly washed/co-washed hair), and then rock out with simple, quick looks the next two days. You can even stretch this out further by wearing the twists/ twist-out/ updo for several days, which is my usual option if I'm pressed for time during the week.
I usually wear my twists underneath a bonnet for a day, then rock a twist out, and then style it in various styles throughout the week. To make my twist outs last last even more, I'll re-twist (using a bit of coconut oil) in big, chunky twists at night and wear it again the next day.
