Hair Files


Over the weekend I pulled up my sleeves and my got my hands dirty working in this thick fro of mines.  I got all fancy and created a homemade avacado deep conditioner which I learned about through my trusty hair manual, Curly Girl: The Handbook. While my creative juices were following I decided to take a stab at trying a twist out.  (Sidenote:  I've done twistouts in the past and they have always come out looking like the devil.)  To my surprise I managed to pull off a funky (in a good way)  twistout that I actually liked.  Click inside to see how you can create a homemade avocado hair recipe of your own.



TWISTED UP

Miss Jessies Curly Meringue

5. Begin twisting the small section hair until the end.
