My “Curly Nikki” Twistout Results

February 3, 2010

Ok, I finally tried the Curly Nikki hairstyle. It’s not hard at all… You just section your hair, twist, and use rollers, rods, or flexis to curl your hair. I didn’t like my results at all. Again, my relaxed ends were not playing well and just looked thin compared to the rest of my hair. I’m convinced that the only curly hairstyle that works for me while I’m transitioning is a flat twistout. Anyway, when wearing it out didn’t look like it was working… I went ahead and pulled it into a ponytail, added a headband, and went out the door. Pictures are below…

I have the same problem. I am at 6 months transitioning and my hair is long but has almost no curl definition in many areas. It is curly/wavy when wet but once it dries, it is just a frizzy, straight/curly/wavy mess…The only thing that has worked is the braid-out and that is not even on a consistent basis. Maybe with more new growth, the curl definition will grow in. I have my fingers crossed.

Kiarah, I’m still crossing my fingers too, lol. What you described is exactly how my hair looks when I try to do twistouts and most braidouts (they are hit or miss). A hot frizzy 3 texture mess! Have you tried a flat twistout hairstyle? It’s the only hairstyle, outside of straightening, where my ends don’t look too thin.

The flat twistout definitely works better for me than a regular twist out. And braidouts almost always come out nice for me. It’s my go-to style.

Hey I saw your other post about the flat twistout and was wondering if you thought a style like that would work on relaxed hair. My hair is too thick and way to course to deal with natural (I can barely deal with it relaxed) but I want to try something new. What do you think?

Ty, I think it will work fine. Just finished styling my little cousin’s hair in a flat twistout and she is relaxed. I used the exact same method that I use on my own and it came out great!

what products do you need to transitioning to relaxed to natural hair. How to you grow your regrowth during the transitioning. Do you cut off the relaxed during your natural hair transitioning.

i think i’ll try this style when my natural growth gets another 2 inches on it. What seems to work for me right now is a braid out. i cornrow my hair the night before and take it out in the morning. Good results. yet i have to do it every night or else i look like a used cotton ball, like today. Humidity

Did you set you hair while it was wet or dry?

try a bantu-knot out, i’ve been transitioning as well and those perm ends will look great after you take the knots out. if possible after you knot them (while wet) sit under a dryer for about 30minutes-1hour, but if not, be sure that they are completely dry b4 u take them out
