My Hair: Twist Out On Damp Hair

I decided to try a new hairstyle, well not quite new but let's say I tried some new things in order to perfect a twist out I hadn't quite figured out how to master. I wish you could have seen my face and how long I spent in front of the mirror in admiration of how well it turned out! #girlyissues

 If I had to put the so called 'twist out success' down to just three things, they would definitely have to be: parting placement, products used and patience - here's the scoop:

Phase 1
So I washed my hair, then jumped out of the shower, chucked an old T-shirt over my head and then left my hair to dry for 20 minutes.

Phase 2
After 20 minutes I whipped the t-shirt off, sprayed some of my Homemade Leave-In Detangler onto the section of hair I wanted to twist, followed by a quick detangle with the Felicia Leatherwood Detangling brush, and then began to twist.

I usually part my hair on the right hand side of my face and then do two medium sized flat twists on each side of my parting, i.e. four in total, followed by about 10 single two strand twists. This time however, I skipped the flat twists and did medium sized twists twists all over using my much loved Aunt Jackies Curl Cream

Phase 3
Well that was pretty much it! After twisting I reached for my Misto Oil Sprayer #GodILoveThis and misted my hair with some Almond Oil. Then I chucked on my headscarf, went to bed and unraveled my twists with a little bit of Almond Oil the next morning.

So what made this time special?

- Gave myself a deeper parting to create a different shape 
- Dried my hair for a longer period of time [I usually only dry for 5-10 minutes]
- Took my fine time!
