My Valentines Day Twist Out

Hello everyone! I haven't wrote a hair post or review in a while. If you read my last hair post, Finally, A Hair Regimen, you know that I'm the queen of a wash and go. I decided to be fancy for my date. He has already said that his favorite hairdo on me is a twist out. Truthfully, it takes to dang long! I like to get in and get as quick as possible. I decided to take my time and look my best.

I started by using Mizani Puriphying (that's how they spell it) Shampoo. I followed it by Miss Jessie's Super Sweetback Treatment. I think I should have used a different shampoo conditioner combo. My hair was still tangled after the Sweetback Treatment. I usually use it as a cowash. Anywho, I'm learning... Next I combed it out better than usual. Then, I took small sections and two strand twisted with Miss Jessie's Stretch Silkening Creme. I wanted my curls to be more of a straight curl and not a natural curly curl. More on this product later. I put Motions Hydrate my Curls pudding on the ends. I love this product on my ends.


Next I put a head scarf around it and went to youth service at church. Hey, I can't leave the kiddos hanging for my hair lol. By the time I left church my hair was almost dry, winning! I decided to roll them with old school foam rollers. I usually go for flexi rods but I wanted a tighter curl. The next morning I took my rollers out.

The curls were perfect. I fluffed my hair at the roots with a big tooth comb. The I started separating each twist one section at a time. I didn't want to tangle the curl so I put a small amount of oil on my finger tips. Finished! The curl was tighter than I expected but that was okay. I had an appointment with my trainer so I knew that and a shower would loosen them up a bit.


I give the Silkening Creme a 6 out of ten. It really dried my hair out. It was just okay. I could have used my Motions all over. The good thing is my hair still looks good and its Sunday! (Left is VDay and right is today).

I hope this review and semi hair tutorial was helpful. Follow me on Instagram for more pics! Until next time...
