Twist out part 2

Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA. I have been busy with school and work. I have news though. So yesterday I washed my hair and decided to try a twist out again. I tried a twist out once before and I was unsatisfied, but I wanted to see how it would go this time. IT WAS AN EPIC FAIL. Now I will say, my twists were big and I didn’t have that many of them, but still. I was really hoping the second go around was going to be successful and I could switch between twist out and wash and go’s. I will only be doing wash and goes for now on. I just wish youtubers wouldn’t make it seem so easy when they’re doing theirs, when it’s totally not. Well you know what they say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. What works for someone else may now work for me. No one’s hair is the same and I’m okay with that.

Thanks for reading xoxo

Wash and go vs twist/braid out

Hello my naturalistas. I’m sure most, if not all, know what a wash and go is. For those that don’t, wash and go is when you don’t twist, braid, flat twist, etc after you wash your hair. If you big chopped or have a teeny weenie afro (twa), wash and go’s are probably your best friend because of how quick and easy it is to literally wash your hair and go. On the other hand, if your hair is a bit longer than a twa, wash and go’s probably aren’t as quick and easy as it use to be when your hair was shorter. I’m personally a wash&go naturalista or should I say wash&style naturalista. It takes me an hour just to apply product to my hair after I’ve washed it. Like mentioned in my previous post, I finger rake the product through my hair then let it air dry. I’ve tried to do a twist out once and my results after were horrible. I’ve never tried it again. Of course one time shouldn’t determine if I’m not a twist/braid out naturalista, but it was just sooooo time consuming and my arms were tired!! I will say this though, kudos to all my naturalistas that do twist outs, braid outs, etc because that definitely takes dedication! I someday hope I’ll be able to do twist/braid outs on my hair because I do love the volume others have from doing it. With wash and go’s, you usually have a lot of shrinkage, defined curls but less volume.

Below is a picture of my twists the one time I did it. What do you think?

Are you a wash and go or twist/braid out naturalista? Feel free to comment 🤗
