My love affair with marley twists continues. Towards the end of my transition, they gave me a much needed break and I’ve gotten use to how easy/fuss free marley twists; I’m not ready to part ways. It had been 2 weeks since I last wash and deep conditioned my hair so my tresses were due for some pampering.
 Pre-pooed with Shea Moisture Intensive Hydration Conditioner + coconut oil on top for 2 hours with my Hot Head conditioning cap.
 Cowased with As I Am Coconut CoWash Cleansing Conditioner
 Coffee rinsed.
 Deep conditioned with Silk Dreams Vanilla Silk Cream Moisture Dream for 15 minutes under my steamer.
 After letting my hair cool, I rinsed the deep conditioner out and squeezed the excess water from my hair.
 Then I applied my leave-ins (Kurlee Belle Thirsty Kurls Leave-In Conditioner & Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum) and put my hair back into my marley twists.
I start my twists off as if I’m doing a box braid and then switch to twisting once the hair feels secure. It takes me about 4 hours to install my marley braids. As for long these twists will be in, I normally keep my twists in for 1 to 2 weeks before taking them down to deep condition and redo.
