Okay…so boost! Usually when I do twist outs, at the end of the day I don’t really find them to be worth it because at the MOST, my hair will last two days, and I often redo it after one day. But this time…I took my twists out on Thursday, and kept it out until I got home on Sunday night. Yes, Izzy’s twist out survived Vegas! In addition to doing smaller twists overall, I took some additional steps in order to make the style last, because I cannot stand doing my hair on vacation! On the last day, my hair was beginning to hang in my face a lot and I had to drive, so I just put half of my hair up in a ponytail…randomly, I got so many compliments. I didn’t even do my regular routine the night before (thanks booze) and slept on a cotton pillowcase! Anywho, here is what I did:
1. It seems that my hair frizzes out the most on the top and front of my hair, so on Thursday night I retwisted those parts – it was probably about ten twists or so and did not take long. I used Mizani Moisture Stretch. This stuff basically goes against everything I look for in a product, but I thought the mineral oil and silicone would seal my hair so it would not poof out while being outside a lot. I kept them in until I about to go out, because I knew I was going to touch my hair, lol.
2. I did not use ANY water based products on my hair unless I was retwisting. To fluff my hair out, I used Mizani Supreme Oil. Again, I wanted to make sure my hair was sealed.
3. I wore my Sue Maesta hood to sleep – which does not flatten my hair as much as pantyhose or a scarf, and still allows me to keep my shape for the most part, even if my hair is smushed.
4. I kept my hood on and wore a shower cap in the shower. With wash and gos, I usually don’t wear anything because I want the steam to get me some moisture, but I didn’t want that this time.
The pic is how my hair looked on the third day (I snuck and snapped a shot of my hair when my friend went to the bathroom, lol). Yes, I was in a bar taking pictures of myself. Don’t judge me. My hair was soft and fairly defined, and not greasy at all. I was so excited – I actually didn’t wet my hair for over seven days. Next time I do a twist out (not sure when that will be since I joined a summer bun challenge), I will definitely do this routine again.
