Carm’s Twist out.

26 Aug

Twist out use to be my go to style and way to manage my hair when I transitioned a few years back. Honestly, the only reason I don’t do it more often is due to utter laziness. I do find when I do it, my hair is more manageable and looks more styled. Here are some pictures showing the process. I first shampooed and conditioned, detangling in the shower using a Goody Shower Comb.

 Shea Moisture Shampoo and Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner.

 I never fully rinse out the Honey Hemp.

After the shampoo and conditioner, it had some what air dried, I managed to sit on my bed and eat vanilla wafers before starting on my hair. I then started section by section twisting. I never have any rhyme or reason.

Here are the products I used. I first grabbed a section, mist with Oyin Greg Juice, then apply some Oyin whipped pudding (these two are a guarantee for moisture!).

Not sure exactly how many twists I did

Then I finished by applying Hairveda vatika frosting to each twist.

The next morning is below, I sleep with a satin bonnet.

 

Twists taken down

Viola!

Really all I needed to do is take down, maybe apply some gel, yet I kept touching it. The front ended up getting poofy . Go figure.

 

  I will do another with smaller twists and let you ladies have a look.
