One of the things I love most about having natural hair is its versatility. We can go from curly, wavy, kinky hair to straight, shiny locks in an instant and we have a billion different hairstyles we can experiment with.
Last night I decided to break my usual weekend hair routine and wash my hair. Normally, I don’t style it while it’s wet (because I hate the shrinkage) but I wanted a look that would last at least the rest of the week so I did the tried and true twist out, but I added perm rods to the ends.
Here’s what you need to do to achieve this curly twist-out look:
Before washing, detangle your hair and put it into 6-7 sections.
Wash and condition your hair while in sections to make it easier and to detangle even more. I used Cantu’s Moisturizing Cream Shampoo, Cantu’s Rinse-Out Conditioner and Cantu’s Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream.
Keeping the hair in sections, squeeze any excess water from your hair and comb through each section. Add your favorite oil and twist-out/moisturizing cream. I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie.
Begin twisting and roll the ends of each twist with perm rods. I used a small size only because those are the only ones I have. I’m sure any size will work.
Let your twists dry overnight by placing a satin bonnet or scarf over them.
In the morning my hair was still a little damp, especially on the ends since I used such thick sections, but by the time I left for work they were dry. The final look is really curly and the best part about it is that you don’t need to use heat!
