Textured Twist Out

Great morning luvs!

Today I wanted to share with you all my best tip for achieving a super textured twist out. You know that bomb 3rd or 4th day twist out look? I like to get that look on day 1! 

   

 Don’t get me wrong, I love a defined twist out, but I love a nice, fluffy textured one more 😊. So, how do I achieve this look? Here is the step by step for this look:

1. I used my OGX Beauty Coconut Curls Hair butter to twist my freshly washed hair. 

2. I let my hair get about 80/85% dry 

3. I unravel the twists

4. Separate the twists towards the front  slightly

5. Fluff roots

Here is what my hair looks like after (still damp)

   
  

 

Here is my hair about 90% dry.  

   

 

And this is my hair completely dry.

   
   
That’s it! My preferred twist out/twist out method. I adore this look! That’s it for now luvs 😘

XOXO

My Ideal Curly Fro

Hi Luvs!

I hope everyone had an awesome Independence Day! My long weekend started on Friday with hubby and I spending the first half of the day shopping for the new house. I loved pending time with that guy ❤

When I woke up in the morning I really felt like I wanted to go with a simple wash and go for the day. The only problem was we were completely out of Eco Styler which is generally what I would use. I was a little discouraged until I saw this sitting in my product closet  

 I had used this foaming mousse for a flexirod set and a couple of twist styles but never a wash and go. I decided to give it a shot. I wet my hair in the shower and applied the product using no particular method at all. I just got a hand full of product and ran it through my hair. The results? This BOMB curly fro!  


 
 These are the kind of results I would get from a 3rd or 4th day wash and go, the absolute best days for the style as far as I’m concerned. The bonus with this product is I can achieve those same results on day 1!! Not only that but my hair was incredibly soft! No crunch at all to this wash and go!

 I was so impressed with this look that I attempted to duplicate it on the Saturday.  Instead of just applying the product to wet hair I tried to add some methodology to the process by sectioning my hair and applying the product to each individual section.  The results were nice but I think my no method messy application on Friday yielded better results 

 

Either way I was very pleasantly surprised with my wash and go results using this product. 

Curly Fro!

So you all know how much I LOVE rocking a fro. Well, today of course is no exception. This curly fro today is giving me so much life! Something about its shape is just amazing.

I think I was able to achieve this look by wearing a chunky twist out yesterday (using Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk) and not doing anything to my hair before bed. I just wore my bonnet as usual. And this morning, applied some Eco Styler Gel and pow! In love!

Work Fro Fun

I work in a corporate environment and because of that one of the most fun things for me to do with my hair is rock a nice big curly fro. My co-workers are so intrigued and amazed by it. It’s far from conventional but my big goal is to kill it every time. I think I managed to do it again.

Message: don’t be afraid to rock a fro at work. You are beautiful and so is your fro!

Pushing the Corporate Envelope

I LOVE pushing the envelope when it comes to wearing my natural hair at work.  I’m in a corporate environment Monday – Friday 7:30 to 4:30 so every day I do my hair in the morning I’m thinking of yet another way that I can do something a little more outstanding than the day before.  Being one of 3 african american individuals on the floor I work on, blending in isn’t really an option.  And I am truly thankful for that!  Outside of the fact that the Book calls me the salt of the earth, intended to offer a bit of spiritual flavor to an otherwise bland atmosphere, I love the idea of contradicting a corporately correct fit with a curly fro or super high mega bun.  I love being different.  My natural hair affords me the opportunity to be different every single day.  Holy Spirit lives in me and my every day goal is to change the atmosphere he puts me in.  Some love me and others love to hate me.  At the end of the day the only thing that matters is that I love me.

Don’t be afraid of wearing your natural hair styles at work. Don’t fear that they could potentially hold you back from advancement. God is your source, your job, is just a resource. Love yourself. Be yourself. And the next time you think about wearing that style you’re just not sure is ok for work…go for it. And don’t just wear it, OWN IT!
