Another Takedown

Sorry guys, I’ve just started a new job and there’s been a lot of stuff happening with that so that’s why there’s been a period of silence. But normal posting shall resume on Tuesdays as normal and as and when during the week as well.

So here is the Takedown of my braids in pictures. I didn’t actually do much to my hair when I first took it out on Saturday, I was just so happy that it was out that I just did two big flat twists for church on Sunday and then started the aftercare process.
Grace after the two big flat twists I had done for church were taken out.
The Takedown toolkit
The Takedown toolkit included:
A wide tooth comb (for detangling)
Clips (for sectioning hair)
Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo (cleanser)
Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner (conditioner)
Vatika Coconut oil (to apply on top of conditioner)
Kinky Curly Knot Today (leave-in conditioner)
Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream (styler for twisting)

Castor/Coconut/Argan Oil mix (to seal in the moisture)


Sectioned my hair into 3 sections before proceeding to finger detangle each section.
I went through the same process basically that I did for the last Takedown process which I documented in this post. So after having washed and conditioned my hair, I sectioned my hair into six sections to begin twisting.
To twist my hair, I would apply the Kinky Curly Knot Today to each section of hair before dividing each section into further little sections and applying the Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream and my oil mix before flat twisting my hair.
Completed flat twists

Once the flat twists were done, I added perm rods to the ends to give them a more curlier look than normal.

And here are the results:


Please excuse the outfit, I was on my way to netball.

The twistout actually was quite defined and very fluffy, thanks to the Cantu Shea Butter cream. I am pleased to note that Grace looks like she’s growing quite nicely as my roots very badly need to be redone in terms of colour. I am still debating whether to redo the colour or not – not redoing the colour would serve as a useful measuring tool for my growth…just a thought!

Different angle of curls. Please excuse the slightly petrified expression on my face.

  • gorgeous texture you have. the fear of extra dry hair stops me from dyeing.
