The Perfect Twist Out vs The Perfect Wash and Go

Hello everyone! I have been one busy lady these last couple of weeks. So busy that I forgot to post the best twist out that I've ever done lol. I've been soaking up so much info over the last two months and applied all of it to my tresses in order to pull off (what I refer to) the perfect twist. I used my transitioning kit (even though I'm fully natural) that I spoke about here.


First, I washed my hair with the cleanser (smells divine). After a thorough wash I applied the Coconut Curlada for about 30 minutes. I would be lying if I said I rinsed it all out. I left a little in my hair. Next I towel dried and then I applied the defining moments curl defining serum to combed out hair. I created four sections. Now time to start my twist!

I used a technique I learned at a hair event. I started off with a braid. Mid way I stopped braiding; split the middle sections, and twisted it all the way down to the ends. I sealed the ends and my edges with the edge control. Once I was done with all my twist I let them partially dry. Once they were partially dry, I added foam roller to the end. Time for bed!

When I awoke the next morning my twist were dry. I took the rollers out and separated my twist with oil on my fingertips. I find that my hair is so much smoother if I have oil on my hands when I take my hair down. Now fluff! I start at the root then make my way down. I use a comb at the root and my fingers everywhere else. All done! It lasted four days. Below is how my hair looked all four days.

I call this the twist, roll, separate, and fluff method!

Now for my go to style! The wash and go. If you've read any other article on my blog about hair, you would know that this is my all time favorite. The reason why I'm calling this one my favorite is because my hair was so soft and it moved with no wind lol. That's how light it is. I was blessed to be a presentation model at a hair event Tuesday and was able to get some pretty great samples. I also purchased some product as well.


I washed my hair with the sample of  You Be Natural (a Lusters product) moisturizing and detangling shampoo. My hair was put in Bantu knots so I needed this in order to wash the style out. I had my conditioner on stand by just in case it didn't detangle. Low and behold it did! I love this shampoo. I try to only shampoo my hair twice a month. I co-wash twice a week. BUT this product may make me add an extra shampoo in the mix. After I towel dried I applied Sapote Hair Lotion by Pura Body Naturals. I won it at an event. It is super light and it smell soooooo good. Made my hair even softer than it already was. After, I applied the You Be Natural Defrizz Define & Shine Serum. You can tell by the pictures up top how shiny my hair is. I put on a bonnet and went to sleep. The next morning I got up and shook my hair out with my fingers and went to work. Bottom left corner. You can't tell how shiny it is because of lighting, but it was still shiny and it was fluffy. I will be using these products on a normal basis.

What are your go to products? What techniques do you have for a perfect twist out or wash and go? Please share with this product junky HA! Until next time....................................

  1. your hair looks amazing.I tried this Curls product but it didn't yield such great results for me. Just goes to show that what doesn't work for one will work for another.
    I now use Shea Moisture products which have worked really well.

    1. You're so right! Some of the Shea Moisture I love and some I can't do. I learned at an hair event that it's your porosity not your hair type that decides what products work for us the most. I just usually waste money and pr samples and try stuff. Thanks for stopping by. I will be making my way over to your blog!

  4. Hello fellow natural lady! #newfollower I've been natural 6 years & I'm currently using SofNfree Nothing But line. I can say I've never used an entire product line and liked everything. I often mix and match. Glad you found something that you like. Do you think you'll keep using Curls?

    1. Hello and thanks for stopping by!!! I also LOVE to mix and match. Nothing But didn't agree with my hair. I liked it at first and noticed that some of the products left a residue. Curls didn't leave a residue. I love to try new products and just about everywhere I go I get new samples. Sometimes I mix it with my staple products and sometimes I try the whole line if it's given to me. I refuse to by all those products lol.

    1. Thank you Nikki! The first three years all I did was wash and goes and get it pressed. I think I only had 3 products under my sink. Now I have over 20 lol. I convinced myself to step out of the box and be better at taking care of my hair. I'm glad I did. Most of my techniques come from hair tutorials on you tube and at hair events.

  6. Your hair looks great. I've never heard of the twist out method (braid then twist) that you used. So, I'm going to try that the next time I do a twist out. Did they explain the reasoning behind this technique? I'm just curious.

    1. Hello Christyl! Thanks for stopping by. I've seen Chary Jay do the opposite on her youtube channel. The lady who showed me this method stated it gave her twist out a better look. It worked for me as well. I noticed my ends looked better when I twisted them instead of braiding them all the way down. About to check out your blog now. I would love to see your results!

  8. Hello every body my name is Cynthia Morgan, am from United Kingdom England, I just want to share my experience with the world on how Dr iayaryi, help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn't work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience because I strongly believe someone out there need’s it… You can email him through his email.(driayaryi2012@hotmail.com)
