    Default Twist out/Braid out Partie DEUX

    I thought we could keep this thread going y'all It's really nice to be able to look at your many successful twist out attempts...well some of you anyway (looking at you GG and Padme ) and share techniques.

    So continuing from the other thread...Psyann, I don't think you'd have to do more sections for a band out than you do for a regular twist out. I do between 20-25. Do you usually have more twists than that?

    Annnd thanks for the compliments, especially on my avi. I tried to wear the two puffs to the cafeteria and my friend told me I looked like a five year old or a haggard soccer mom...so I took them out I'm glad some people appreciate them lol.

    I usually don't care very much for my twist-outs when I do larger twists. But this one I like.

    oh, Dezi you are a pro! That looks great! I wish mine came out like that.

    I washed my hair last night and put in some large twists for a chunky twistout. After styling it today, it looks like a Maxwell-esque afro.

    my braid out looks turr'bul!! and i cant find my camera!! i'll have some one take a picture of it once i get to where i'm going and will post later

    see what had happened was.... 6 hours airdrying and 1 hour under the hood dryer was apparently still not enough. the roots were still wet all over and i still had patches of dampness all over. but it's OK i salvaged it to something cute

    Thanks starlight. I'm on day three and it still looks pretty good. I have to remember the next time I do large twists not to twist tight at the roots. My hair looks thicker that way. I think that's why I like it so much right now.

    I actually got compliments on my hair tonight y'all - from 2 of my white classmates, at that! I washed yesterday and put my hair into 12 2-strand twists with rods on the ends. I used Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. It was close to dry this afternoon when I took it down and finger combed.

    Dezi, I'm loving the definition.
    Wargoddess, can I borrow so hair? lol

    So I finally took my hair down. I didn't oil my fingers while doing it because I was in a rush, so some of the twists in the back got really frizzy. I just fluffed it ahead of time, and rocked a twistout fro. I got MAD definition on the front right side. It was shiny and squiggly. I know exactly what I did to get it that way, so next twistout will be done using a lot of water. Sorry for the crappy pictures, I used my cell phone. I didn't have my camera on me.
