46 Weeks Post Relaxer: Twist Out


I have done exactly ONE twist-out since the start of my HHJ. I always liked braid-outs better, but I decided to try a twist out last night. Well..it's more of a twist-n-curl. This was one of the styles on my list :-)

So..last night I:

  • washed the twists I installed 2 weeks ago with WEN
  • Airdried the twists for about 30 minutes so my hair was still very damp
  • Took the twists out in sections
  • Once each section was taken out, I finger combed it
  • Then applied a mix of Aloe Vera Gel and EVOO/Coconut Oil
  • Twisted the section
  • Bobby Pinned the roots down 
  • Then curled with small flexi-rods
  • Let the set sit overnight and removed in the morning

****I did a total of 11 twists. Now, if I planned on keeping my hair out longer, I may have done more..but my hair is going back in twists on Monday.

I ran out of small flexi-rods, so I used a larger one to secure two twists. 

Because of that larger flexi-rod..that side came out JANKY!



So, I used my handy dandy  Caruso Rollers! 
I put in about 5 small rollers and kept them in for 8 minutes. I liked the results much better although it still didn't look EXACTLY like the other side. 

But, I still liked the results!





One thing I must say I like better about these.... is that there is less breakage while installing. 
I may stick to twist outs in the future especially since it doesn't look much different than a braid-n-curl.

Note to self: buy more small flexi-rods
