Good things don’t happen over night, they take time…
I haven’t been wearing my natural hair for that long but before I started wearing my hair out, I scoured the internet for styles and hair care tips. I saw all these flawless styles and thought it was going to be a piece of cake, right? WRONG!! Why was I wrong? Everyone is different and that means EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT. What works for one person may not work for me the way they did it, so I end up having to modify it to fit my needs. And let’s be honest here, YouTube leads you to believe everything is possible. My friend Amy, from Llewsoba, and I were talking about how before people film a tutorial they never tell you how many times they had to try it before they dub it their “first try”.
So in all honesty, I have attempted many twist outs before and have never been fully confident with the results. That is until I added two new things to my hair regimen.
Before I show you the amazing twist out, allow me to share with you my bloopers.
To me, this wasn’t terribly bad but it wasn’t the result I was looking for. This was my first twist out ever and progressively the results became better and better.
This was about a week after that one and as you can see the twist out is a bit more defined. The difference? I did the twist out on damp, nearly dry hair using As I am Twist Defining Cream.
Even more definition I did smaller twists this time and I still used the As I am Twist Out Defining Cream.
THIS TWIST OUT GLORY HAPPENED!! When I took them out I said “Ahhh…success!” Bounce + Definition = Success in my book.
I added two new products to my regimen and I didn’t pull apart the twists. I only unraveled them because my hair becomes much to frizzy when I start pulling them apart. Plus, I prefer the more defined look.
You can find both of these at Authenticality Company and they have more natural and organic (yes, they really are natural and organic) hair and body products to choose from.
On the left is the 317 Total Moisture styling butter and on the right is Head to Toe Gorgeous conditioning hair and body butter. I can honestly say that both of these products have changed my hair for the better. My hair is frizzy and these two products have helped reduce the amount of frizz that occurs.
Remember, keep trying. Just because you don’t get the same results as someone else doesn’t mean that there isn’t something out there that works for you. And the first time isn’t always going to bring amazing results!
Have you repeatedly tried a style on your hair and got better results over time?
