Twists vs. Twist Outs

Twists or twists outs?  That’s the question for today! The answer isn’t quite that simple however. Let’s talk about the pros and cons of each.

Pros of Twists

1.  I love the look – Generally speaking I love the way twists lookM on me. 

   
   

2.  They’re protective and give my hair a break – Lets face it, sometimes even I get tired of styling my hair. This is a great way to give it a break and its a great protective style! Twists are very low maintenance not requiring much at all.

3.  They’re still versatile – I still have the luxury of being able to style twists which helps me not to get bored

   
   
Cons of Twists

1.  Limited styling capability – Although I’m able to get a little creative with styling my twists I am definitely limited.  I can’t do nearly as many creative styles as I can with a twist out.

2.  I miss my texture – After about a week or so of wearing twists I very genuinely start missing my texture. I crave my chunky twisted updos 

Pros of twist outs

1.  Definition – I do enjoy curl defining styles every once in a while and this is probably the easiest way for me to achieve some great curl definition.

   
   

2. Unlimited styling capability – There is no end to styling options when working with a twist out
   
    
 
3.  Fairly protective – although they don’t offer the same level of protectiveness or low maintenance as twists, twist out updos are still fairly protective. 

Cons of twist outs
1. Longer to style – I don’t often care to wear my twist outs out. 90% of the time I style them in updos which believe it or not it always takes me a bit longer to style. I fight against the definition to get the shapes I want which means I end up using a ton of bobby pins. 

So….as for preference, I honestly can’t chose! I love both of these styles. It really just depends on what I’m in the mood for.  You’ll definitely continue to see me rock twists and twist outs.

What’s your preference?
