Flat Twistout Fail = Side puff victory!
Hello ladies! So much has been going on in the world this is natural hair since my last post. I’d just like to say congratulations to all of you ladies creating companies, planning successful events and manufacturing great products for all of us. We would love to share your successes with everyone. So, send in pics of your events and we’ll gladly share them…Now, on to business.
I saw sweeteababy0427 on YouTube describing how she parts her hair for a flat twistout. It sounds simple, but she has a way of creating an “L” shaped part so your hair falls the right way. So, I thought I’d give it a try. I washed my hair (using Deva Curl No Poo Conditioning Cleanser…LOVE it), did a pseudo deep conditioning (just put on a shower cap, no heat) and then applied my Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner. Then, I sort of let it air dry a little….and then the fun began! I noticed that it was a little difficult to keep the 2 pieces of the twist separate, but I did my best.
This is the finished twisted product (sorry for the blurriness):
And here’s the failed twistout:
Some pieces are ok, but a lot of the ends are puffy. OMG! What am I gonna do???
Here’s my quick-fix:
Crisis averted! I’m excited, too because I get to wear my favorite hair accessory. It’s a clip that I picked up at H&M in NYC. I wish I had one in every color
What I learned:
1) My hair is too short to put into only a few twists
2) I should keep the ends of my hair wet when I twist to avoid the afro puff at the end of the twist
3) There’s no such thing as a bad hair day when you have natural hair!
How do you ladies fix your “bad hair days”?
