Twistouts are usually hit or miss for most people.
.
I've noticed that I get the best definition from damp hair.
Twists must be completely dry for defined twistouts and damp hair dries faster than wet hair.
.

To make the twists outs,
.
I 'wet' my dry hair using a water based leave in conditioner such as @ruutos Moisture Leave In Conditioner. It absorbs easily in my hair.
.
Then I use a product with some hold such as @ruutos Moisture Intense Hair Butter 😍 concentrating on the ends (so they don't get dry).
.
Then I twist my hair and bantu knot the ends (more comfortable than rollers for sleeping) and cover with a satin bonnet. .
The next morning, I oil my hands and carefully untwist my hair. I used @ruutos Hair Elixir
.
I don't usually fluff because humidity here in Nigeria does the job...and definition lasts longer.

Prepping my hair for the #pinturahighlights I'm going to be doing on my hair for Christmas!!! Colored hair is prone to damage and dryness so I'm using these products to make sure my hair is in tip top condition before colour treatment in December:
.
@ruutos Reconstruct Intense Anti-breakage Mask which is infused with hydrolysed collagen (improves hair elasticity), hydrolysed keratin (natural hair protein) and biotin.
.
@ruutos Reconstruct split end serum which is a silicone free, water based serum that is formulated with keratin, biotin, D-Pathenol and aloe vera to help strengthen ends and 'prevent' split ends! Absorbs into my hair instantly! ....
.
and of course my current lover 😘 @ruutos Moisture Intense Hair Butter to make sure my hair stays moisturised always!!!

Q:What's your hairtype?
A: Type H for Healthy!!!
.
I observe that there's a lot of confusion when it comes to hair typing especially when it comes to Type 4 hair.
.

Hair typing was developed as a way to describe different hair textures and make it easier to identify products, hair styles and regimens best suited for that texture.

Personally, I only find this classification system useful to give someone who hasn't seen my hair an idea of what it 'LOOKS LIKE'
.
My hair may 'look like' someone else's hair but behave in a totally different way in the same conditions....because of other factors such as: . - Porosity
. - Strand width .
- Density/ Volume of hair. .
- Length of hair .
- Age of hair
- Hair care practices and environment. .
To natural sisters wondering, I think HAIR HEALTH is more important than HAIR TYPE.

.
- Selection of ingredients in hair products, what hair type benefits from what ingredients and when to use them (especially for dry season) - How to protective style for harmattan/winter and steps to take to get the best results from your protective styles...(so you'll notice length retention rather than breakage!)

A lot of people are capitalizing on lack of knowledge!
They spread a lot of falsehoods concerning the effectiveness of certain hair growth and hair loss products.
.
As a scientist, I don't take any claim on face value and I'm not afraid to do my research and ask professionals in the field for clarification. .(being in an educational and health care environment gives me finger quick access...lol!)
.

Anyone and their dog can write anything on Google and claim it to be facts....so do take such claims with a pinch of salt before being conned out of your hard earned money.

Today's class will be all about PRODUCTS....are 'natural' products really natural? What ingredients are proven to be beneficial to what hair issues?
.
See you today by 7pm.

Who's interested in trying out this specially formulated solid shampoo?
No...it's not a soap!
Yes, it's designed for harmattan/winter season!
.

@Regran_ed from @semseyacademy - Relax... It is a SHAMPOO. what? How? Never?

Somethings come out of challenges. @nappilynigeriangirl said to me she was holding a natural hair class... I have deliberately been staying out of this hair business a while.
Reason being that I wasn't quite knowledgeable about hair as a trichologist at the time but I could formulate hair products. So when she sent me the messages, I said lets dive in and see jare...
luckily, I was out and close to one of my teachers in cosmetics formulation.
That's how I kuku paid for a hair course and learnt practical in freezing temperature, then he challenged my practical mind and said... go make something that is not yet common in the market..... that's how I started to work with the team back home to do crazy experiements and voila, we hit this one... Everything is Temperature and Viscosity controlled. .
.

When I call for hair products formulation class now, don't doubt ooo, I have gone to learn πŸ˜πŸ˜€ and this is my foray into the hair business.

Let's go people... sky is the limit 😚😎 - #regrann

NIGHT TIME ROUTINE FOR STRETCHED HAIR.

The ends of my hair are older and fragile. It requires gentle care to prevent breakage.

I don't braid down to the ends of my hair but twist instead to avoid a lot of manipulation on the ends when taking down the braids.

I also make sure I use a 'water based' hair butter such as @ruutos Moisture Intense Hair Butter before braiding it up to maintain moisture levels.
Then I put on a satin bonnet.

I think I should make this 'Snapchat filter' hair band. It suits my bun so well.

I love switching up my natural hair style as the weather changes from rainy to dry/harmattan season here in Nigeria.
.

Do you know you can use bendy roller aka flexi rod to give your Type 4 hair a different look?
(Swipe left to view result)
.
Humidity can quickly ruin a set but with harmattan/winter creeping in, this is the best season to bring out your rollers for a flexi rod set, perm rod set or straw set.....it dries quicker too!❀❀❀❀
