First of all, I came out of the marley twists (obviously). After all of the twists were out and I had massaged and loosened the buildup at the roots, I proceeded to deep condition on dry hair. First I misted with water, applied a generous amount of the ors deep conditioner and detangled thoroughly first with my wide tooth comb, and then went through again with my denman brush. Following the steps of this video:
It had been about a week and a half of wearing those small twists, then I took them down a couple of days ago for another wash day. This time, deep conditioning took a small detouring remix. I didn't have enough of my beloved ORS to make another full round, so I decided to mix it up a bit. Adding in the last bits of what I had of tresemme naturals conditioner, a bit of suave naturals strawberry conditioner, along with some avocado oil, castor oil, honey, and a splash of apple cider vinegar and I had a pretty good mix for a deep conditioner. Oh, I also added in some drops of peppermint oil for scent, stimulation, and tingles. :)
Deep conditioned with that mix for all of an hour and thirty minutes, shampooed and moisturized using my regulars, nothing new in that area. And since then, my hair has been in the same eight twists since then which was like two days ago. I've started school recently as well so I don't have as much time to dedicate to my hair these days. Lately, my hair has been in these twists within the realms of a satin bonnet covered over by some stylish scarf.
