I Twisted Izzy!!

Finally, I was bored enough to give twisting another try…I spent the afternoon experimenting with product combos…so come 7pm, my hair was still wet. I cannot stand sleeping on loose, wet hair, and I needed to detangle anyway, so I decided to twist my girl Izzy up. I only used my Donna Marie Cocoa Hemp Buttermilk after cowashing with my Devacurl. I separated my hair into about 10 sections, applied the Buttermilk, then clipped them up. As I took each section down, I detangled with my Tangle Teezer after letting the Buttermilk sit. It took about an hour and a half, but golly, I felt like I was twisting forever!!!!

Here are some pics –

    I absolutely love your twists .. I think these are the best I have seen yet!!!!! Teach me 🙂

    Elle….That does it!!! You have inspired me to style in twists. 🙂 I am only hesitant because I understand twists on soaking wet hair = shrinkage. (My hair soaks water like a sponge and takes almost 2 days to completely dry). Any suggestions?

      LOL…honestly…I expect and accept shrinkage. If my twists aren’t dry and I don’t want to wear them out, I wear a hat or a wig.

        My hair takes forever to dry as well. I wish I knew the secret. even doing time under the hooded dryer doesnt cut it.

      Thanks! I just put on a satin scarf tied loosely and went to bed. In the AM they weren’t messed up. I’m not a wild sleeper though.

      LOL, awww!!! No way, I’m Team Wash n Go forever…just got bored. I don’t know how people do this crap as their main style – especially the mini twists! Naw heck naw…

    Oh Elle they look really good! I can’t wait to see how they look when you take them down!!! I’m looking forward to the day I feel comfy with doing twists but for right now I’m a WnG girl 110%

    I feel the same way about twists! I think it takes time to get used to wearing twists. But yours look very pretty! You would have to pay somebody to do your whole head in smaller “wear outside” twists because you have waaaayyy too much hair! can’t wait to see the twist-out!

    Most of the time when you’re not planning a particular hair style your hair comes out looking great. These are great twists to say you did it on the fly. Due to my different hair textures twists and twist out became my BF this winter. I really think I have it down to a science now. For me twists on wet or damp hair works the best for me. I use oyin’s hair dew as LI and twist with myhoneychild’s buttery soy and that’s it. Soft, shiny and defined twists. I know you didn’t have the myhoneychild jelly but some of her creams are awesome for twists and a lil goes a long way. Can’t wait to see your twist out!

    What exactly is the Tangle Teezer? I’ve seen it mentioned several times in the past couple of weeks. Does it make a big difference when you detangle? You did a great job with your twists! I’ve only tried to twist mine once, but I ended up looking like Buckwheat’s little sister – LOL!

    • HB says:

      It’s basically a detangling brush…I don’t think it makes much difference compared to my paddle brushes, but a lot of ladies love it. There are some long threads on it on lhcf and nc.

  7. Halibel says:

    OMG! Those twist look absolutely delicious….like fat noodles I want to eat. ‘_’

    …….okay that sounded weird, lol.

    Gosh, how do yall have the strength to put that many twist in your hair. I would of been depressed and threw in the towel. lol

    But soooo beautiful, ELLE!

    Awwwwwwwwwwwwww its so pretty!!! And I like the multicolored-ness (is that even a word?) of your hair! Wish I could achieve a mutlicolored-ness (there it is again) of light browns and blacks.
    Any-whozil, I guess since so many of us arent used to seeing homegurl Izzy here all twisted up, we are all “ooh”ing and “ahh” ing ^-^
    Please dont take this the wrong way but your hair looks so healthy and happy c:

    That’s the first thing I thought too! In twists, my hair looks like Ramen noodles! I do chunky twists at night (on dry hair) to sleep but even those aren’t so thick!

    • HB says:

      Lol thanks! The sad thing is they are that plump and I did a BUNCH!!! I didn’t count them this time but I think there were around 20 one each side…
