If you’ve big chopped before or have a TWA, you know, it can be a tad bit boring dealing with short hair. Once in a while, you get that feeling like you want to do something different with your hair. Change it up/spice it up, whether it be for a special occasion or just because you feel like it. Today, I’m going to share with you a super easy hairstyle I did on my TWA.
All you need is a conditioner and gel of choice. I used Oyin handmade hair dew & pink curl & wave ecostyler gel. You also need a rat tail comb, a bristle brush(optional), oil(optional), a satin or silk scarf.
After you wash your hair or dampen it, massage oil(optional) and conditioner to your hair. Take your rat tail comb and start making a part on your hair (choose the side you like). Use gel to smooth the hair down. Continue applying the gel all over your hair as you smooth it with the back of your rat tail comb. You can also use your hands or a bristle brush if you want it really flat. After you’re done, simply set your hair with a satin scarf. The longer you keep the satin scarf on your head the smoother your hair will lay flat. And tha’t’s it! its really easy!
I use the oil to protect my hair from drying out and being extremely crunchy due to the gel. Personally, I wouldn’t wear this style for long periods of time, because gel can be very drying to our hair and our type of hair needs all the moisture it could get, in order to thrive. Also when wearing this type of hair style, I make sure to shampoo my hair (rather than my normal co-wash regimen), in order to avoid product build up from gel. I also do a deep conditioning treatment, in order to make sure to restore moisture to my strands.
