Natural Hair: Shea Butter Twistout

Hey Curlies,

Shea butter twistout

For the Fourth of July holiday, I decided to challenge myself to doing a shea butter twist out. This is specifically more challenging for naturalists because we like to use several products when we style.

It's hard to admit, but mini twists have been on my mind lately. Last summer I said I would most likely never do them against because they took a lot longer to take down last time...but mini twists have been on my mind since I posted the Mini Twists Guide last week.

I haven't found the time to do them, but I'm planning to install them as of late July. I washed my hair using Shea Moisture's Black Castor Oil shampoo and conditioned with Mill Creek Botanicals Aloe Vera Conditioner.

I thoroughly detangled my hair and created about 15 twists using only Shea butter in about 30 minutes. I untwisted the next day and got this...






Happy Fourth of July!
