The twists


⦁ If your intention is to moisturize only your ends, hold your hair in a loose pony tail, apply the moisturizer then wrap the ends and hold the plastic bag with hair bands or wear a shower cap.
⦁ If it works for your hair where it moisturizes your hair without causing itchy scalp or soaking wet hair, you can add it to your hair routine but don’t over do it, too much of everything is dangerous. Allow your hair to breath.

My baggy method review.

I moisturized my two and half old braids(with no extension) using mikalla moisture boost and sealed with ideal castor and olive oils. Wore my plastic cap and let it sit overnight (7hours).

The results were unbelievable, my hair felt super soft, the braids were bouncy and shiny, I loved the results and I feel like I’ll be doing baggy method weekly since I moisturize my hair weekly when in a protective style.

I would love for you to try and let me know how it goes and if you have tried the baggy method, did it work for you?

    I love the baggy method! I usually come back to it whenever my hair needs a bit of a boost; as it can get quite dry.
