The Bomb Twistout!

Hola curlies!

So, I've always been apprehensive about wearing twists because I didn't think my hair was long enough to look right. But I wore them for three days last week (sorry no pics )and got rave reviews so now that it's starting to get warmer, instead of opting for a wash and go like I used to, I'm going to consider wearing twists. It's a lot less work and my hair is unbelievably soft (which surprises me because the water at school is ridiculously hard).

But you all know what a good set of twists brings: a BOMB twistout! Twistouts show the length of my hair a lot more than a wash and go does. Observe:




It doesn't look as chunky as I'd like it to look...in fact, it just makes my curls bigger. But this is by far my favorite natural hairstyle. To keep my twists looking fresh, at night I spray them with water and Rosemary EO, twist in the direction I want them to hang and then tie it down with a silk scarf. In the morning, I undo them, let the breeze ruffle my hair while I'm driving to campus and then wa-la! A cute twistout!

The only drawback: People wanna dig all in my hair. lol

Just felt like sharing

Too bad you didn't take any pics of the twists. Woulda loved to see how they came out.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

Honestly, I didn't use many products to do this twistout. When I twisted it last Sunday (and I wore the twists for three days), I remember putting a bit of shea butter all over my damp hair before I started, but that's it. To keep them fresh midweek, at night, I took my dollar store spritz bottle, filled it with water and about 10 drops of Rosemary EO and just sprayed every section of hair before I twisted it. When I woke up, I got marvelous results!

My hair is usually damp when I do twists and I had twists all over. They were about the size of my pinkie finger.
