Hair Tutorial: Twist out on blown out hair

Hey Ladies!

After blow drying my hair for my length check I wanted to style it in a way to give it body and retain moisture; after wearing it big and wild for a few days šŸ™‚

Day after blow out

So I decided to take another go at a twist out. Last time I loved it but after a few hours my hair puffed up like a chia pet. I also have been wanting to try out some new products so this was a perfect time to do both.

I scored BIG on this conditioner that is on sale at Sprouts this week with a bonus coupon; only 5 bucks a bottle (I will be going back today to stock up). The argon oil I use for my take downs and also for my skin care routine. Not pictured is my coconut oil.

So now that I had my products, a sleeping baby, and some patience I got started.

Step 1:

Start with blown out hair. I have a tutorial for this on the blog as well. I also clipped my ends before starting (thanks mom) made such a difference in the results.

Step 2:

Section hair and decide size of twist.

Step 3:

Apply product. I went conditioner, coconut oil, and then reapplied conditioner at the ends half through twist. I make sure to add enough product to almost revert the hair. I actually add enough product at my ends to make sure my hair curls.

Step 4: Twist! I did flat twist. I am not the best at these because I always borrow hair which makes for a hard take down but I am trying to perfect this.

Step 5: I added rods to my ends. As I spoke about in my length check my ends are terrible so I added the rods for the extra help with curling.

Step 6: Sleep! I sleep on a satin pillow case every night to product my hair and keep moisture in.

Step 7: Rise and Shine!!!

Step 8: The take down. I add Argon oil to my fingertips to keep down frizz. I always start from the bottom up.

Look at that definition from the rods!

Halfway there!

All done!

Step 9: Style. I pick out my roots with a wide tooth comb and use a SMALL amount of the conditioner to smooth down my edges.

Finished!!!!

My niece wanted to sneak in.

And that’s it ladies. I LOVE this conditioner. It left my hair sooooo soft and no flaking.

Hi There! I'm a 30 something woman who thought if I did things just right everything would fall into place.... boy was I rudely mistaken. So I thought what better than to share my life journey with the world; reminding people that just because things don't go as planned, doesn't mean they are not going. So here's a toast to our 30's: when things get a little more complicated, your political voice dwindles a tad, and true friends shine through. Here is to all the weddings, break ups, weekend trips, and alumni events. Here's to gaining weight, losing weight, grad school, and student loans. Here's to babies born, jobs we hate, co-workers turned friends, and passport stamps. Here's to not forgetting memories shared, changes to come, remembering who we are, and of course love.
