So, last night I gave in and decided to try something new...a twist out. I co-washed my hair as usual, and then applied some Giovanni Direct Leave In mixed with Kinky Curly Knot Today. I then sealed my hair with some coconut oil and then applied my styling agent. For my styling agent I used a homemade Eco Stlyer gel custard. This stuff worked AMAZING! My hair dried soft and without any crunch! I will discuss how I made my custard in another post though. But anywho, it took me about an hour to twist all of my hair up last night. I then put on my satin bonnet and let my hair dry overnight. I think my curls in the back were elongated...which I like. However, I prefer my natural curl pattern in the front over the pattern the twist out gave my bang area. Overall, I think it is best for me to just do wash n' goes at this point. It's quicker, and gets the job done. The twist outs might be a great way to style the back of my hair though. That way it loosens up some and blends better with the front. Either way, it is safe to say I will probably save the wash n' goes for a time when I get more length. My results are in the pics and video below! Enjoy!
