Growing in treasuring my girls, and sharing what I am learning along the way.
LOL love this!
I wanted to ask you a question, but don't see a way to contact you...so, here goes! My 2 and a half AA daughter's 4a hair is but 1.5-2" long and I struggle with how to protect it so it can have protection to grow. Do I leave it in a TWA and keep it moisturized or go another route? Thanks! Love your site!
The TWA is a great protective style as long as you aren't trying to detangle it daily (finger detangle when you rinse is ample). Do keep it moist as you said--water and seal with an oil or butter. If her hair feels crunchy you may need to try a different oil. Olive oil, castor oil, sweet almond oil and jojoba are some favorites. In the winter keep her hair covered when she's outside. You may need to seal with a heavier oil or hair butter (shea butter).
Thank you so much! I will fight the urge to twist and puff until it gets longer.
