Mini Twist Prep

Hey luvs!

Sometimes your hair just needs a break, you know? I recently decided to give my hair a reprieve from styling by installing mini twists, my favorite protective style. 

Before I actually install the twists I prep my hair with a 3 step process.

  1. Cleanse
  2. Condition
  3. Moisturize
  4. Chunky Twists

After these steps I then install my min twists. Of course I’ve got a video going through each of these steps in detail.  Click here to get all the deets on how I prep my hair for Mini Twists. That’s it for now!

My Go To Protective Style

Good morning luvs,

I’m super excited that my family and I will be traveling home to Florida for a the long Memorial Day weekend and my first Fearless Textures event which is this Saturday (Ahhh! 😝). I’ve got a lot of preparing to do and didn’t want to have to worry about my hair leading up to the event so, I decided that it was time to bring my go to protective style back, mini twists.

  
I absolutely adore mini twists. Not only are they super cute they are extremely low maintenance and still allow me to work with my own hair.  I’ve never been a wig, weaves, box braids, etc kinda girl. Mini twists have been my protective style preference since I’ve been natural. I can style them up or just let them hang. Either way, they are beautiful!

Mini Twist Bantu Knot Out

Hi beauties!

Last week I decided to give my hair a break by installing mini twists. This is probably my go to protective style. They are super cute but still allow for some creative styling.  In an effort to add some curls and make this style a little more fun I did a bantu knot out. LOVED the results

Mini Twist Bantu Knot Out

Hi luvs!

My favorite style from wearing mini twists last month has got to be my Bantu knot out. I always struggle doing this style but with twists it was so much easier! And the curls, the curls came out beautifully. 

   
 I used the same typical method for the knots and I can definitely say that I’ll be doing this style again. 

   
 
Plus, the definition lasted for days!

This Week’s Best – Mini Twists

Hello beauties!

I hope you all had a great Saturday. Today I wanted to show you all how I styled my mini twists this week. Although my twists were very defiant and wanted to do what they wanted pretty much every day, I still had a lot of fun playing with different looks.

So let’s take a look at each style!

If have to say that the best of the week for me was Tuesday’s look. I loved the shape of this style. I had a bit of an edgy look going on that day and it just all came together nicely in my opinion. What’s your favorite?

The New Co-Worker Natural Hair Introduction

Hello loves,

Last week was my first week back at work but in a new city! I started at AAA’s Atlanta Office of about 8 people total. Quite a change coming from an office of several hundred. None the less, I like it.

I thought that mini twists would be the best way to introduce my curls and kinks to my new coworkers. So, I spent about 6 hours last weekend getting it done. I really think it’s what my hair needed.

I’ve been trying to find the right product combination for my highlighted hair. Since I got it colored its texture has changed a lot. It’s much thicker and much more difficult to retain moisture. I used Cantu’s curl cream to do the twists and have been maintaining with aragan oil and Shea Moisture products.

The twists have definitely made mornings easier, not to mention post work outs too! I’ve started back on a fitness regimen and having the twists has been fantastic!

Hope everyone’s doing well! Here’s a look at some pics from last week.
