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.

My niece wanted to sneak in.

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