My Flat Twist Out Results

I'm tired of wigs. I'm tired of wearing them, adjusting them, dealing with their heaviness...just tired. I made a decision last week that I have finally got to find a style for my natural hair that I like so that I can wear it out because I just can't do wigs right now *shakes head vigorously*. It was when I snatched my wig off that I remembered that I kind of like the look my hair has when I undo the twist I keep underneath the wig, so I decided to recreate it for my every day look to see how it would work out.

First I detangled my hair by separating it into 6 sections, slathering Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise onto each section, and brushing each section tip to root with a denman brush. I let the hair mayonnaise sit there for an extra 30 minutes before washing out.

Next I shampooed my hair with Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo, then conditioned with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner. I left this on my hair for two minutes, then rinsed.

I then towel dried my hair (I know some folks prefer using a t-shirt, I don't, I just don't rub the towel on my hair but squeeze instead) and then applied Sebastian Potion #9 leave-in conditioner. I started to flat twist my hair (about 9-12 flat twist), applying Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Smooth-n-Hold Pudding to each section (this product DOES contain mineral oil, so beware if that's a big no no for you) before twisting.

I left the twists in for a full 24 hours before unraveling. I moisturized my hands with jojoba oil and began to gently unravel my twists. Once they were all I pulled my fingers through the base of my hair to give it a little more volume, stuck a bobby pin on the side to give it some kind of style, and voila!




I really like my hair like this AND I'm wearing my natural hair out today at work for the first time. I've gotten soooooo many compliments! I'm happy because I think this style is here to stay for a while!

I so heart this video! I want to show it to every little brown girl I know to boost their hair confidence. It sure boosted mine!
