The Twist Out Results

The other day I put up a post entitled “Natural Hair- Those Twist”. In that post I mentioned that I considered doing a twist out later on in the week. This is a quick post just sharing the results of the twist out.

Tip: As I took the twist a loose I made sure to put oil  on my fingertips. This helps keep the hair from becoming frizzy.

That’s it everyone. I truly hope that your week is going swell. Take care and God bless!

Natural Hair – Those Twist


all finished

Approximate time needed: 2 hours 30 minutes (that is from beginning to end, which includes stopping along the way to take care of my baby girl. If you don’t have to stop then I would say maybe an hour and thirty minutes).

How I achieved this look:

Step 1: Start with a clean head of hair (shampooed, co-washed,  detangle entire head, and conditioned with my lotions and oils). start

Step 2: Section hair into three sections (1-2) in the front (3) in the back. (I began with one section in the front and one in the back. Once I reached the front I divided it into two).

Step 3: Twisting the back section first is my preference. My twist were between small and medium in size.

*How I do them*

I grab a rather small-medium portion of hair. I apply my moisturizer of choice from root to tip. I divide the portion into two and begin twisting. As I twist one strand over the other, I smooth the hairs in that strand down. I do this all the way to the end of the twist.back finished

Step 4: I move on to the front section and now I divide it into two sections, and I twist one section at a time in the same manner. I twisted the right side going to the right. front side

Step 5: I twist the last front section in the same manner going down to the left until I was all done. all finished

Step 6:  Pin and style as you please.

Tips:

-Style on clean damp hair, so you may need a water bottle.

-After co-washing, I moisturized with lotion and sealed with oil  in rather large sections, made sure to detangle, and then twisted each large section.  I took the twist a loose and that is where I begin dividing my head for the twist. Then as I did each twist I added more moisturizer the each twist.

My Thoughts

This was a simple and easy style to do. I did this style on Sunday for work on Monday. Later on in the week I may do a twist out with these twist. I really like that this was easy and versatile.

Before I end this post someone wanted to make a guest appearance.

Natural Hair – Simple Pin Up Updo

 

 

Approximate time needed: 1 hour and 30 minutes  (that is from beginning to end, which includes stopping along the way to take care of my baby girl. If you don’t have to stop then I would say maybe 45 minutes total).

How I achieved this look:

Step 1: Start with a clean, damp head of hair (shampooed, co-washed, and conditioned with my lotions and oils).

Step 2: Section hair into 4 different sections: 2 in the front and 2 in the back. (In a “t” formation)

Step 3: Add additional oil to fingertips and begin making medium sized twist all throughout each section.

Step 4: (optional) Add 3 1/2 inch perm rods to the ends of each individual twist. I didn’t even roll half way up. I only did enough to secure the rod to the hair.

3 1/2 inch rods

Step 5: Cover with a scarf and let it be.

Step 7: Thoroughly oil your fingers and take your twist a loose.

Step 8: Pin and style as you please.

Things that you will need:

-Water Bottle                                                  – Oil of your choice                            -bobby pins

-3 1/2 inch perm rods (optional)                     – scarf

Overall Thoughts

I was pleased with the final outcome, and I like that it did not take a lot of time to achieve this look. My goal was to create a style that I could keep up and rock for 5-6 days.  At night I moisturize with lotion, seal with oil, re-twist my hair, and put on the scarf. These steps will help me keep this style nice until my co-wash day.

I hope that this was helpful. I encourage you to try new things with your hair. Whether it’s a success or a flop, I encourage you to rock it like you did it on purpose.  Have a blessed day everyone.
