Last week, I decided to try my very first twist out. I was getting a little bored with my hair and wanted to try something new. I didn't wash my hair before doing it but wet it with a spray bottle. I used a combination of As I Am leave in, olive oil and Cantu Shea butter.
I didn't realize how long my hair really was until now. It kind of shocked me. When I finished, I wrapped it with a scarf for the night.
That morning I rolled the ends up for about an hour and a half while I roamed the house trying to figure out how a toddler can make a mess in so little time.
This is what it looked like when I took it out. Next, I started taking it all loose with a little bit of olive oil on my hands. For some reason, it didn't occur to me that I would need to fluff, pick, pat, slick, etc, etc. I'm going to blame that on exhaustion. I was hoping it would come out something like Cate's. Just done with little or no manipulation but shorter.
Chunky twist out
And then there was me.
After I had finished taking it loose. I ran my hands though my hair and just stood there.
Not too bad for a first try!
Thanks for reading.
