Lessons From A Retwist

Happy Super Bowl Sunday,
Thank God, I made it through this week!
If you read my last post, then you know that I retwisted my mini-two strand twists on day 27.
This time it only took me 4 hours to complete after washing, deep conditioning, banding, and blow drying (on cool) my hair. Plus, I made the twists a little smaller this time.
Because my hair has been stretched from the twists, there has been less tangles than if I had kept my hair in twist-outs.





I usually pin my hair on the sides. After about three days, my twists puff up from the steam in the shower and result in a style of their own, and I like it :-) I did not lose a lot hair after detangling. It is said that the average person sheds 100 strands of hair per day. But, that amount has always been a little more for me. My grandmother used to say that I was lucky that I didn't go bald lol.... blessed! I was shocked to find that I did not lose a large amount of hair when removing my twists during week 2. Could it be the Vitamin E. Oil?? I think that my stretched hair and deep conditioning aids in my process of detangling.  Stretched Hair = Less Tangles= Less Hair Loss During Detangling Process. Thank God for that! What have you learned from your protective style???
