I love your hair and your blog. Your protective styles are on point. I was wondering what products do you use on your hair (i.e. moisturizers, conditioners,etc)?

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I typically use coconut oil, shea butter, Kinky Curly Knot Today and Shea Moisture conditioners.  I hope this helps and sorry for the delay.  Be Blessed!!

If you had mini twists in for 4 weeks and you start to see split ends would you think its time to take them out? And just let your hair breathe for a few days and put the mini twists back in?

I’m not sure how long you can wear mini twists, but after that amount of time I would take them out to prevent the hair from trying to loc.  I would also see about having those ends trimmed if it has been a while, that might be the reason for them splitting.  After wearing them for so long, I’d definitely give the hair a break before putting more back in.  Sorry for the delay and I hope this helps.

do you twist your hair dry or wet? when i twist mines i blow dry it to stretch it out a bit because i have major shrinkage and then i use some cantu shea butter to twist.

I typically twist mine initially while it’s wet.  After wearing it for a few days, I’ll mist it while dry before twisting it at night.  Sorry for the delayed response.  Be Blessed.

GREAT INFO on the effects of too much heat on your hair.
essentious:

Why Heat Isn’t Your Friend Silky bone straight hair may look appeasing to the naked eye however, there is more to it then meets the eye. Afro- textured hair tends to be dryer and more prone to damage more than any other race so, it is imperative that you are very aware of the consequences of using heat on your hair to often.The reason why Afro- textured hair tends to break easier is due to the 
curl pattern. Coily curly hair has a very small amount of cuticle layers so, it provides very little protection against heat. When heat touches your hair the cuticles of the hair shaft it expands the cuticle making it become brittle even though it may appear to look shiny and healthy. After many sessions of squeezing flat irons or curling irons up and down the strands of your hair the pressure of straightening your hair breaks down the fibers of the cuticles causing them to become weak and damaged.When Afro- textured hair is flat ironed to often it can lead to split ends, heat damage, and dryness therefore, flat ironing, blow drying, and curling should be limited to 1-2 times a month with a few rules set in place.1. Never flat iron dirty hair. Your hair should always be freshly washed and deep conditioned before attempting to straighten it out .2. Never flat iron hair more than once a day. Use saran wrap or silk scarfs to smooth out the cuticles of your hair to give it the look and feel that you desire.3. Never use grease to flat iron hair, instead opt for heat protectant serums or sprays.
