Kind of at a loss of what to do

Since my BC, I have been kind of at a loss for what to do with my hair. I know it takes time to find out what works for your hair, I know I have to work thru this....and yes, I know my hair will grow out & become longer and not shrink up into nothingness forever.

Friday evening, I did a quick co-wash and tried my transitioning staple, Bantu knots....much harder to do with shorter hair, I had to pin the majority of my knots. I also had a bunch of straight hairs which I clipped during the process. I kind of liked the look, but I definitely need to find something to help with the hold & the shine.

This evening, I co-washed with V05 Peaches & Cream, then DC with Coconut Oil & Joico Moisture Balm with 30 minutes of heat. I used Giovanni Direct Leave-In & Pantene R&N Conditioner for the comb out.

I must say it is so nice to be able to comb my hair without tangles & puny relaxed ends needing extra TLC!!! I still have a bunch of renegade relaxed ends, I am just snipping them when I see them.

I decided to try braiding tonight, but I did the front row in twists, since I plan on wearing my half cap. I added Giovanni LA gel to the front twists to see how that works. My twists or braids ends don't just curl under...I wonder is it due to my remaining unsnipped straggly relaxed ends, I hope so. My twists from Thurs. were frizzed out the next day, but I didn't really use any holding product on them. I'll report my results tomorrow.

PS - The twists seemed more defined, however one of the front braids was not dry...but off to work I had to go, so it kind of frizzed up immediately. I blended in the front with my curly half cap and whoop there it is....
