By Curly Nikki 18 Comments

Hi, I am new to your site and just wanted to share a few fotos. I’ve been natural for 3.5 years and have always two-stranded, braided, and occasional dominican blowouts.

I co-washed my hair w/DevaCurl. Afterward, I used a bit more DevaCurl and Hello Hydration condish as a leave-in. I then applied my shea-aloe mix to my damp hair and did about 15 knots. When I woke up, my twists were still damp. I guess I started the process too late- tried to blowdry some, but it was taking too…
