Hola Chicas,

It’s Thursday which means we’ve officially taken over Essence for the day!

¡Viva la Revolución!

Check out my latest installment,
where I give advice on protective styling when bunning is a headache!

Later Gators,

    I do braidouts or twistouts so I can moisturize and seal easier. I put my hair in a up-do tucking in my ends with a clip and I do buns on certain days but only for 2 days. Low manipulation styles do work I retained length on straight and curly hair by keeping my hair off my shoulders more.

    I have been wearing twist outs and for the first 2 days then putting my hair in a a bun for a day or two, then retwisting. Is this too much manipulation?

    I so agree with low manipulation styles cause its easier for me to moisturize during the week without having to take down some complicated protective style. I also love doing buns after taking my twist out just to continue to keep my hands out of my hair until wash day. Another great article thanks nikki.
