The Frizz Queen

Hi World,

I am so excited to be posting frequently! Well I wanted to post tomorrow but something came to mind…The Frizz Queen. Frizz is not my friend and I will tell you why.

I was on my own, minding my business when a thought came into my head: “Why don’t you prepare for a twist-out and leave it in twists for two days for wonderful, well-defined results?”. I quickly jumped up on Sunday morning and did just that. I knew there was no way the Humidity Fairy could spoil my day because I used my African Pride leave-in conditioner and raw Shea Butter to seal in the moisture while twisting #BeatThatHumidityFairy.

I did not go out with my hair in twists for the world to see. I tied scarves when I needed to leave the house. After all, it was a great sacrifice for the future twist-out I wanted to rock. Well Sunday passed and Monday too. Today was the chosen day for the big reveal…my expected beautiful, well-defined, to die for twist-out! I put some oil in my hands to make sure the hair would not frizz up and unraveled my twists. THEN THIS HAPPENED!:

I could not believe that I met the Frizz Queen. Why did she decide to pay me a visit? For goodness sake I did everything right! Well I think I did. When preparing for my twist-out, I properly detangled my hair with my brush and made sure I twisted it very well. I even thought leaving it in twists for longer would help with the definition. It did not. When I prepare for a twist-out, I usually leave the twists in overnight and unravel the next morning. It comes out well-defined. Well now I know who put the thought of leaving my hair in twists for two days…the Frizz Queen! #YouWinThisTime.

However, I was able to solve my frizz problem by giving myself a Low Knot style.

Lesson Learned For my Hair: Frizz appears when twists are left in for more than a day! Hope this helps.

Always me, Sandeey

  1. haha I can definitely relate ๐Ÿ˜€ good you’ve figured out what works for you. I’m still experimenting with different products/techniques and I learn everyday ~14 months into my natural hair journey. Rock on sister ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Btw, have you tried using a gel for your twist outs? (I haven’t read the entire blog so pardon me if you have already answered this question somewhere)

    • Took ages to figure out what works and how to apply them. Lol. I’m still working on finding a gel that works well for me. I get away with not using gel when the weather is dry though. I haven’t posted anything about it yet. Any suggestions? I’m ready to try any and put out a review!

      • I try to be as natural as possible with the products I use so I’d suggest aloe vera gel or homemade flax seed gel (I hear it’s super easy to make, I have some lying around at home that I have not gotten around to trying yet).

        Also, I hear using the LOC (liquid, oil and cream)/LCO method to moisturize your hair before applying gel helps to reduce the crunchiness when the gel dries. I’m yet to try this on my hair, maybe I’ll get a twist/braid out that doesn’t end up in a puff/bun cuz it didn’t come out right ๐Ÿ˜€ haha

      • Hahaha @ puff/bun! Thanks for the tips. I have actually tried Aloe Vera Gel in the past and do not remember why I stopped. I will try it once more with the LOC method and see what happens. I will definitely take pictures! I haven’t tried the flax seed gel yet although I watched how to make it on YouTube. I must try it and hope it works well for me. It’s good I started my blog. With people like you, I can learn a lot. Thanks.

        I will be featuring naturals in my blog in the nearest future. Hope you would be willing to be one of them!
