Twist Out On Relaxed Hair

Friday, July 25, 2014

I decided to do a simple twist-out on dry hair with a few of my favourite products :). I'm quite pleased with the results as it was so spontaneous with little product usage. Below is a description of how I achieved this simple look. 

Step #1:
On dry hair, I moisturized with Scurl No Drip Activator and sealed with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I focused on my ends ensuring they were thoroughly moisturized. I then parted my hair in 5 sections (2 at the sides, 3 in the middle like a mohawk). I twisted each section making sure each twist was tight and secure. I grabbed 5 perm rods and rolled them at the ends of my hair for curl definition. I tied my hair with a satin scarf and bonnet and went to bed.

Step #2:
In the morning I removed all the 5 perm rods and proceeded to unravel each twist with a tad-bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my finger tips to prevent frizz. 

Step #3:
I separated each twist for fullness and lightly combed my fingers through my hair to "remove" the parts I made for the 5 sections. I kept my side part and lightly fluffed the hair in front for added volume.

That's it!

    1. It's tricky. Make sure you twist really tight from root to tip. Usually the twists will slightly unravel so that could be the issue. Remember to cover your hair with a satin scarf and/or bonnet for protection and to moisturize it well prior to.

  2. I love a good twistout, right now I'm using Shea Moisture style milk and EVOO
