I’m running out the door, late as hell, but had to share these results. This is my first dry twist-out!
On Sunday night, after washing with CURLS Curlicious Curls Cleansing Cream, and conditioning and detangling with Curl Junkie Rehab Moisturizing Hair Treatment, I blotted dry (75%), applied a bit of CURLS Milkshake and put my hair into 10 big twists. This was the ‘stretching’ process for the actual style.
On Monday afternoon I took down one twist at a time, finger detangled, and smoothed with my Denman Paddle Brush (reviews coming soon). With wet hands I applied a dime sized amount of CURLS Curl Souffle to each section and re-twisted. No rollers. I put on a satin scarf to protect my crown (twists dangling down), and let it set over night.
This morning, I took the twists down one by one, gently separated them, and used my fingers to rake through my roots. I applied a bit of Jonathan’s Polishing Gloss, and VIOLA! A soft, wavy, stretched set! The Souffle left my hair VERY moisturized, it doesn’t have much hold, so we’ll see how it looks after a day of running around in the humidity.
I didn’t think my dry hair would take to twists… I’ve done dry braid-outs in the past, but this is a first! I hope it’s something I can keep in my winter rotation. I think I still prefer to have the ends rolled because I like a shorter, bobbed look… what can I say, I love chin length hair! Plus, it makes my fine hair appear fuller. What do you guys think?
