First Week of Moisturizing Small Twists

So, I want to use the Qhemet Biologic products throughout the course of the wear with this set of small-ish medium twists just to see how it performs and ultimately, how my hair will respond to it over the course of time.

First of all, my hair dried. Not meaning that it dried OUT, but that after a day, it was actually able to dry thoroughly which is NEW for me. My hair rarely EVER dries within 24 hours for a style. So THAT alone is a plus in my book.

My hair this morning was very soft, fluffy, and with lots of sheen. My twists felt incredibly healthy and smooth, I couldn't deny the health of my hair today. And so beginning this morning I only moisturized the ends of my hair (meaning like the last 1 or 2 inches of hair) using the Amla and Olive Oil Heavy Cream. I didn't seal it in with anything, I didn't really remember to. BUT. It did give me some time to see how this product acts alone.

And it did well! It didn't dry out at all, even without being sealed in by an oil or a butter. Water is one of the main ingredients of this product and the second main one is castor oil, so I knew this would perform well with my hair anyway since my hair loves water and has had a love affair with castor oil since they were introduced to each other lol. I'm just glad that I'm able to use this product alone and still maintain moisture throughout the day, so that is also a plus!

Today, when I got home, the only maintenance I did was oil my scalp with my Mint Oil (that's what I'm calling it and it's smells sooo GOOOOOOOOD!!!! lol) and lightly massage that into my scalp and kind of pulled it through the length of my twists. This was the ending result of the night....

I had minimal breakage today as well, literally lost like 2 little broken strands and that was all and my scalp smells like winterfresh gum lol I'm sorry I can't get over this smell in my hair (can you tell I really love spearmint?) !!

So I suppose for the rest of this week I will continue to moisturize with the amla olive heavy cream, and probably starting tomorrow I'll try sealing in the moisture with the Aethiopika Butter as well and try to find a place for it in my moisturizing regimen. I do want to give this product a fair chance, especially since it's getting cooler. So lets see how it goes!

But until next time,

♥ Keep it calm 'n coily ♥
