Last week, I came about this gorgeous twist-out puff! I say came about because I really did not expect it to look so gorgeous! Here's what I did.
- Two-Strand Twisting
- Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner (review here!)
I set my hair in about 35 twists after washing and conditioning it. I left the conditioner in to help the twists set to make a very defined twist-out pattern.
The next morning, I unraveled the twists for a twist-out.
Going around my head in a circle, I began smoothing the twist-out pattern only close to the roots and at the front, sides, and back of my hair. This helps the hair that won't be in the puff to stay smooth and flat against my head. After smoothing the pattern, I sprayed the smoothed section with water and used some aloe vera gel (review also coming soon) to help smooth down the hair even more.
I then gathered my hair using the faux puff method. You can see that the hair not in the puff is smooth and flat, while the hair in the puff still maintains the twist-out pattern.
The "puff" looks a little funny and flat, but once you start separating the twist-out, it will become full!
I separate each twist-out section, using a bit of Blended Beauty Hair Oil on my fingers as I was separating to keep the twist-out from frizzing. I love how well I was able to maintain the pretty curl pattern!
