The twistout or twists hairstyle is definitely my favorite. For the look above I did a flat twistout. I just sectioned my hair like I was doing cornrows and instead of braiding it, I twisted two strands of hair around each other until it looked like the picture below.
Once I finished each section I placed the twist onto a perm rod and curled it. I did that so they would not come apart before I take them down. I experimented and tried a different combination of products this time around. And it’s definitely a keeper! I washed, deep conditioned, and applied my leave-in conditioner. Lacio Lacio is my leave-in of choice and one of my hair staples. I’ve found that six flat twistouts are the best number for me. Mainly because it’s easier for me to detangle at the end of the week than when I do it with more sections. On each section I sprayed a moisturizing mix that included water, glycerin, and aloe vera (the liquid form) from a spray bottle. After I sprayed the mix, I sealed it with coconut oil. And then I twisted my hair.
I did this Wednesday night and let my hair air dry overnight. Seriously, there is no difference in results if I sit under my bonnet or let my air dry… I did not take it down until this morning. And I snapped the final picture of the hairstyle while I was waiting for my train to school, lol. Yes, a sista is up early blogging purely for the love of hair … The result was the best for me to date. My curls are very defined and shiny(at least in person…they look kinda dusty in the picture, ha!).
I’m going to try to maintain this hairstyle for the week. I will pull it up after the weekend and accessorize it with headbands, flowers, and such to make the style different day-to-day and looking fresh.
