Mini Twists are OUT // Banded Twist Out!

Hi everybody! Spent all day Sunday taking down the mini twists, detangling, washing, and banding hair! Fun times as always:) After I finished taking the twists down, I detangled in sections and added coconut oil as a pre wash treatment. I braided each section (about 5 braids total) so that her hair wouldn't tangle back up. After the shampoo, and with her hair still braided, I added some Hair Mayo by Organic Root Stimulator as a protein treatment. I left that on for about 15-20 minutes and then rinsed it out. Then I added our usual leave in conditioner (the Kimmaytube recipe we've been using) and sealed with Shea Butter. Usually I just band her new growth towards the top, but this time I banded each twisted ponytail all the way down to stretch it so we could see a little more length. This was my first time doing this and I must say that I love how the bands made the twist out look a bit more wavy in addition to showing her length! I just removed the bands, seperated the twists, then I put one ponytail at the top and left the rest hanging down. Pictures below! And as always, thank you so much for reading!
