The Twist-out that won't quit! Jemima is back with another set

You all remember my girl Jemima? Check out that post from a little over a year ago and check out her growth and continued mastery of caring for her hair.

Picts and instructions galore!

Hello again,

After wearing my braids for three months, I decided to take them down because I simply MISSED my hair!
Immediately after take down:
After watching a few You Tube videos, I stumbled upon Mahogany Curls discussing the benefits of the “curly girl method”

I first used John Frieda Frizz Ease Curly Daily Conditioner to detangle hair in the shower. I lost less hair doing this step.  Instead of using shampoo I used Aztec Indian Healing Clay.

The clay defined my curls and did great job clearing my scalp.
I used John Frieda Frizz Ease Curly Daily Conditioner along with raw Shea Butter to double strand twist my hair. I decided not to use heat to dry my twists and instead let them air dry over night. Because of previous heat damage, I used the twist and curl method on the front half of my hair. I used flex rods on the ends.

 The next morning I simply untwisted and fluffed with and added a lil Raw Shea Butter on the ends for more defined and less crispy curls.
After a week of wearing my twist out, I decided to try a new look. I’ve had a hard time finding a gel to use that will not flake on me after a few days. I had a little bit of left over IC Fantasia gel so I decided to mix it with my new found love John Frieda Frizz Ease Curly Daily Conditioner!

I added two teaspoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil for shine. The result was a great ponytail and bang style. I created a fake bang by pinning the bang with bobby pins until I reached the desired length. I also try out a bump instead of the bang. I really liked both styles!
 Day two of this style I have no flakes or residue while playing with my coils. I have serious HIH (hand in hair) issues lol.
Good luck on your journey!
 What do you all think? She always has the best sets with minimal frizz!
