Wash routine and twist and curl (video at the end)

So I’m pretty amazing for the fact that that my hair is approaching waist length and I can still get my wash day done in 30 minutes flat.

It didn’t use to be like that. I use to dread wash day even more than I do now back when my hair was this length before (check my about me – in 2013 I cut my bra strap length hair to a taper for a year). I would hop in the shower with my hair loose and wash it all piled up on my head. Then I would condition, rinse it out, and get out the shower and wrap my head in a towel. Then try to part and section and section and detangle.

Sis. No. Don’t do it. Once your past shoulder length – for the love of all that is holy SECTION YOUR HAIR TO WASH. Don’t be like me. Mistakes were made early on.

Anywho now when I get ready to wash – I section my hair into 4 parts and put it in little buns


I give zip zero fs about the parts because they ain’t gon last.

Next I hop in the shower like I have 4 different heads of hair. I take down 1 bun, rinse, wash (scalp only), rinse, apply deep conditioner, detangle (wide tooth comb followed by modified denman) and put it in a braid. I repeat this process for all 4 sections.


Then I go back in the same order (still in the shower) – rinse – take the braid down and apply leave in and a little gel. I section into 3-5 sections to twist or braid. Today I am doing a twist and curl so I did 3 twists in each section. This is a really quick process – when I’m done I look like this

Yal I’m blind as a bat tryna take these pictures 😂😂😂😂.

Anywho. This was at like 4 pm so I left these in for about 4 hours before I rolled the ends. Then I was like BOOM

To combat shrinkage my friend Ebony told me she pins her twists to the opposite side of her head. It sounded like a good idea so I tried it.

Cute right? I’m kidding 😂😂😂 even my overly confident self can’t tell that lie.

Anywho here’s how I slept


Here’s what the outcome was

And if you got tired of reading and wanted to just see a video -I’ll have one uploaded in a few hours

😘 ✌🏾

  1. Omgosh I love the length and fullness of your hair! I don’t think my genetics would ever allow that to happen to me. And you’re Wonder Woman accomplishing a full wash in 30 mins lol
