Since becoming natural I’ve tried a ton of different styles but have stayed tried and true to one of my favorite styles…the twistout. I love twisting my hair out for a few reasons.
1. It allows my hair to form a uniformed pattern and texture throughout my entire head.
2. Elongates my curls throughout the week.
3. Its so easy to maintain and allows for my hair to stay moisturized within my weekly regimen.
4. Twistouts allow versatility being the simple base for a plethora of styles such as buns, pinups, and loose braids.
Just recently I decided to switch up my normal regimen by going out and purchasing a few packs of flexi rods. Here’s how I used them while implementing the flexi rods into my normal 2 strand twist routine.
I twisted my hair with Cantu Shea Butter Leave In and a spritz of Lotta Body Setting Lotion. After each section was complete I spiraled the hair around each flexi rod and secured the base by bending down the top of the rod. I let my hair air dry and untwisted each section using a bit of Vatika oil for shine.
I decided on a Curly Loose Pony as my style for the day with the soft stretched hair that the flexi rods created. Armani says hi.
Later that night I twisted my hair only adding a bit of Vatkia oil to each section.
The next day I took down my twists and fluffed my hair pinning back the sides.
I absolutely loved the results from such a simple step added into my normal twist routine. My hair was stretched, light and airy as compared to the textured hair that I am used to with my traditional twistouts. I plan to use this technique from time to time especially since it was so easy to do.
