The longer my hair gets, the more I love twist-outs!
For this twist-out look, I made my two-strand twist larger than normal. My twist were medium size; about as large as a crayola marker...I think...LOL!
I started with freshly washed hair. I then parted my hair in 7 sections and then parted those sections into 4's.
Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner
Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue
After I parted my hair, I added the Castro Oil to each of the 7 sections. And then added the Curly Meringue after I parted the 7 into 4 sections, (Curly Meringue was added when I was ready to start twisting the section that I was working on).
****New Method Alert****
After each section was done, I would stretch the twist by pulling them downward. I then added a metal "duck bill* hair clip at the start of the twist. I did this to help reduce the puffy-ness from the roots, (since my twist are larger than I normally do them), and to give my twist a little bit more "hang-time".
Once the twist were dry, I added Castro Oil and started to unravel. When unraveling, I split each twist into two's.
Enjoy the pics!

I tried Mini Twist on my hair this past week. I couldn't make them as small as I would had liked bc....well...I'm a very inpatient person..LOL!
By Friday, I unraveled all my twist with the exception of the ones that I have pulled away from my face. This actually gave me a good twist-out look!
Would I do this again...maybe! And next time I might do them even smaller!
For the Mini Twist: I used Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue and Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme (aka: My Crack)
To care for the Mini Twist: At night I slept in a satin bonnet. In the morning, I used a spray bottle filled with water and Castor Oil. I would lightly spray my twist. This kept my hair looking fresh and popped out my coily ends! Then I would rub a little bit of Baby Buttercreme to help seal in the moisture from my water mixture.
Enjoy the pics!
