Dry Twist Out

My funky dry twists.
Hello everyone!  I said that I would update you all about my twists I installed Tuesday night.  I didn't wear the twists today because they were fuzzy and even though it's summer I still need to look presentable for work.  So, I decided to wear a twist out.  I had some serious big hair going on this morning.  I mean big fro!  I loved it, but knowing it was going to be hot and humid I decided to pin the sides back and wear a flower.  I know all of you are super surprised that I wore a flower!

Anyway, I learned something through this experience.  When I twist my hair wet and then do a twist out I get some serious definition.  When I twist my hair dry and do a twist out I get little to no definition and big hair.  My hair was stretched a little, but big.  So, in the future now I know what kind of look to expect depending on if I twist my hair wet or dry.  I'm actually thinking about trying a Bantu Knot out on dry hair because I love how big my hair got with the two strand twist out.  I think that would be a great look to wear with a headband.  Until next time...
Blessings!

    1. If you want big hair this is the way to go.

  2. I've tried a Dry Twist Out. I normally get the same results that you got. I prefer the definition of Wet Twist Outs, however, I get more stretch from Dry Twists Outs. I guess either one is fine.

    1. I do like how big my hair got with the dry twist out, but hands down the wet twist out is the bomb.

    2. Knowing how your hair will respond to whatever you do to it is the key. Now you can add to new look to your style repertoire!

    3. Words of wisdom! Now I want to figure out how to stretch my hair without taking forever because I want to try Bantu knots for a knot out.

  3. Both styles are nice. Styled wet or dry your hair is super curly. Love it!

  4. I prefer dry twist outs because I get bigger undefined hair and no tangling. Both styles look good on you and I like how you accessorize and style your hair. Plus I can see you are perfecting your hair plaiting. Cute style you did on your niece.
