Note to self… Twist-n-Curls are your friend.

For the past couple of months, in honor of the Kim Cole’s Grow Out Challenge (honestly, out of sheer laziness), I’ve worn my hair in 10 chunky, two strand twists. Whenever I’m feeling fancy, which is not often, I take the twists down. I must admit… I haven’t been loving the look. Twist-outs are a constant reminder that I don’t have a lot of hair– they don’t hang right, and the length they show is awkward. I adore chin to shoulder length bobs, which is why the scissors are never far. Last night, for the first time in months, I added rollers to the ends of my twists. I twisted my dry hair with Aveda’s Anti-Humectant Pomade and set the ends with a little Qhemet Cocoa Ghee. This morning, I excitedly took it down and… I’m back in love with my hair. I think it’s the shape (perfect chin length) the Twist-n-Curl yields… whatever the case, it gives the illusion of fuller, heavier hair, and I couldn’t be happier. This is my first time re-visiting this style since last year. WTH?! I’m back baby 🙂

Also, if you’re in the market for a product to keep the frizz at bay this summer, check out Aveda’s Anti-Humectant Pomade. It’s a true pomade… solid in the jar but turns to a light oil once you emulsify it. I’ve only applied it to dry hair (as instructed), but may use a bit on my wet hair later this week. It’s supposed to lock the moisture from your wash and conditioner in, locking the moisture from the atmosphere out, all while adding shine, definition, and a little hold. It wasn’t all that humid yesterday, but my hair held up great. We’ll see how it does in stickier conditions.
