Note to self…

By January 27th, 20217 Comments

Don’t use oils to twist hair. It always results in greasy, piece-y, frizzy curls. I really hate that. I seem to forget this little tidbit, and experiment once every few months…there’s nothing worse than spending 45 minutes on your head only to have it look like hell. This is just my experience- other curlies get great results twisting with coconut, olive, and grape seed oils.

In other news, you gorgeous gals need to stay tuned. I’ll be giving away quite a few 2 day passes to the upcoming World Natural Hair Show! It’ll be in Atlanta on the 4th and 5th of April. I could be dropping it tonight…could be tomorrow 😀

Later Gators,

    I tried twisting my hair with coconut oil once, and while it looked nice my hair felt hard as a brick. Now I try not to use oils in my hair, just some JBCO on my scalp.

    I can’t do oils (or veggie glycerin)for twisting in the summer. I get the crazy, frizzy, just woke up look. Not cute. I have to use flax seed gel for summer twist outs.

    But in the winter, I can use a small amount of coconut oil when I twist and it’s nice.

    yea, same here. i’ll read a great review somewhere of someone using oils, then try it and end up with a hot greezy mess, haha! i stick to using oils in my pre-shampoo or dt’s. although i must say, castor oil is the exception for me. my hair absorbs it by the morning and i have nice soft, touchable hair. i haven’t used it in twists, though.

    I don’t use oil in my hair period. It took me awhile to figure out that my hair just doesn’t like it.

    oils work great for my hair when twisting! maybe its because my hair is still short
