New Hair: Marley twists

Hey Kids,
 It's been a minute.

Work, Life, Sleep and all that good stuff has indeed got in the way a tad!
I am not one to switch it up with my hair that often (which is probz why I still have my hairline and a sizable fro) but I have been eyeing up Marley twists for the longest time.
I haven't had extensions in my hair since teenage days and a weave literally twice in my life!
I have been totally obsessed with this beautiful twists formerly known when very small as kinky twists and I finally took the plunge and did it. Yay!

 My best friend and hair guru extraordinaire hooked me up.
She used to do my hair at school, so I trusted her 100% to look after my hair and scalp.
I am a bit of a researcher by nature and knew that i wanted to use the invisible method.
I sent over videos on how that was done. (see vids below).

1st day

Products used:
Ecostyler gel with Argan (mine £1.99)
Homemade Shea butter whip moisturiser
(recipe coming soon)!!!
Hair x 4 in colour 2 and 4:  Sensationnel Soft N Silky (Mine purchased for £2.79 per batch).

What do you think?

I have had them just over 2 weeks and
I absolutely LOVE them and will definitely be doing them again.
When done correctly they are an awesome protective style.
As my hair is a lot softer than the hair,
I think 1 month to 7 weeks is as long as they will stay in neatly. As you can see they were easy to manoeuvre on the first day and I had no tightness or pulling on my edges or scalp.

 I am not ready for box braids as my neck is still in heavy hair training but I look forward to getting my poetic justice on!
