The Twistout!

Lately I have been trying my hardest to perfect my twistout. A twistout is when you take two strands of hair, wet or dry, and twists them together, they can be individually twisted or twisted along the scalp. The twists are then removed after drying to create a wave pattern. It can also aid naturals who just simply want to create definition in their hair. I try a twistout probably once a month and always end up with awesome definition in the front and a frizz ball in the back, but I digress. I believe this is because I always ambitiously start these twistouts late at night and once I get to the back section I’m over it and I begin putting huge uneven twist in the back. Well, needless to say, last night was no better! I began flat twisting my hair around 1 a.m. I had four awesome medium size twist in the front, two on either side, and two large twists in the back. I did my flat twist on old, stretched hair. I normally always do it on wet hair but I wanted to make sure my hair would dry completely by the next morning. I started by spritzing my hair with Elasta QP Olive Oil and Mango Butter Leave-In H2 Conditioner, I then sealed my hair with organic coconut oil, and lastly I put the Elasta QP Olive Oil and Mango Butter Moisturizer before twisting each section. I set the ends of my hair on perm rods, put on my satin cap and went to sleep! The results were okay, but I do realize for better results I need to stop being so impatient and put in as much love and care in the back as I do in the front! Next time I will document the whole process for you all but as of now, I can show you the results. I will also do a review on the Elasta QP products I used for this twistout. Please feel free to share your stories about trying new styles with me! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
