Yesterday was all about quality time. We kicked it off with a family brunch–

Two interesting things happening in this pic– (1) I never learned to ride a bike, and (2) that young man is my Uncle… I affectionately refer to him as Uncle Baby, since he’s 2 years my junior! #hood

Next we headed to the boardwalk for some sunshine–

Spring Breakers I presume…

Finally, we hit the mall for some retail therapy.

That was some pretty dope day 2 hair, no? To preserve my twist-out and prevent shrinkage I revisited an old routine-

Sweet Home Pensacola- Day 3Without disturbing the curl pattern or finger combing, I grabbed chunks of hair and created 6 or 7 chunky twists before tying on my bonnet. The next morning, I released, fluffed and went about my business. I find this better for retaining definition on my shrinky twist-out… when my hair is stretched/longer, the pineapple is my best bet.

Today is my uncle’s big day. I’ll be checking back in with tons of pictures!


How do you preserve your wet set twist-outs versus the ones you do on dry hair?

    Nikki, I so didn't know that you were from Pensacola. That's so were I am from. Oh and you were on the beach after the McGuire's 5K St.Patty day run and so that is why there so many people with the green fits. Oh and I just love Ashley in Aldo 🙂

  • Pickles says:

    Nikki, hope you enjoyed the old Cap'n Fun Beach Club. I've seen some of the best free concerts there; a three hour Blues Traveler concert, 80's weekend with Joan Jett, the Outfield, The Knack and Tommy Tutone.

    to get 3-4 day hair what i do is flip my hair up& over and put the bonnet on, in the morning i pull the hair down and hit with the blow dryer at the roots and its back to normal..

    i dunno if that's against the rules but it works for ..

    Thanks for sharing your family with us. That baby is TOO cute. Your hair is gorg. To preserve a dry or wet styled twist out, I do exactly what you did. The chunky twists at night give me at least 4 days with the same twist out. I can't wait until my hair is longer, and the pineapple is an option. Can't wait to try it!

    Your hair looks great. The outfit is cute and suits you well. Love the family photos. Baby Gia is such a big girl, just adorable. Okay, so I preserve my wet twist out by grabbing large patches of hair and doing a type of messy bantu knot.
