My First twistout- Washday

1. Prepoo w/ coconut oil & olive oil 25 minutes
2. Wash w/Kera Care Hydrating Detangling Shampoo
3. Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor- for shedding
4. Black Tea Rinse- started shedding too much this week 20 mins
5. DC w/ KeraCare Humecto creme conditioner, Hello Hydration by Herbal Essences, Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily deep conditioner, & castor oil 20 mins...  under my conditioning cap. I've been looking for something to alternate with the Humecto, that makes my hair feel just as wonderful. Hopefully the SilkDreams website opens shipping up soon so I can order the Vanilla Silk Conditioner!
6. t shirt dry for about 45 mins
7. My hair was about 70% dry once I applied my Kinky Curly Knot Today & detangled. I used to love this detangler/leave-in during the summer but for the past couple of months it has been giving me a sticky film on top of my hair. I'm not sure if I am using too much, or if it is just the weather, but I'm hoping I figure something out b/c I have 2 unopened bottles from Christmas:/

I let my hair hang dry for another 10 minutes, then I separated my hair into 4 sections. On each section I used my Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk mixed with a small amount of EcoStyler Alma oil. I distributed the mix throughout each section and sealed with coconut oil. Each section created about 4 twists, which created about 16 twists overall. It took about an hour to twist my whole head and apply satin rollers to my thin bone straight ends. I tied down my edges and put on a satin bonnet to sleep in.

The next morning results:
Not happy with the results... Great effort, bad execution. I may have to hold off on the twist out until after all my straight ends are gone.

Ended up pulling it back into a low bun.... thinking of trying a flexi-rod set soon!


  1. Buns can always save a busted braid out!

    1. Yes ma'am! I actually revived it last night my turning it into a braidout last night. When I woke up this morning and un-did 5 braids I like my results and ended up wearing my intended style today!

  2. I love braid outs!!! I always get more definition with them

    1. Yes me too! I may have had my best braidout ever this past weekend lol. I may even have to post pics!

  3. Haha! Reminds me of me this morning. I wanted to try a braid out instead of a Bantu knot out. So last night I washed my hair, did all the detangling and all. Then I parted my hair, braided the sections. This morning's result was horrible lol so I turned it into a bun too. I'm starting to think I'm really not good at anything "out" on my hair lol

    1. Lol we've just got to practice girl! This stretch I'm trying tons of low-manipulation/ no direct heat styles I want them perfect for the summer. Dont give up, maybe try a different braid pattern or product combination
