Saying Good-bye to the Twist-Out

Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone has enjoyed their holidays!! Sorry that I've been missing in action for awhile, but my holidays have been so busy for me. We traveled to Disney World around Thanksgiving and also had a death in the family a couple days after Christmas, but God has been so good to us. Okay, now that you have heard all of my excuses, now it's time to discuss what I really want to talk about.  During the holidays, I decided that I would plait my hair instead of twist it. I was a little apprensive about it, but the next morning I had bouncy waves that I could never achieve with a twist out!!! I was so amazed!! All it took were 7 plaits! I usually create at least 20 twists in my head, which usually takes at least an hour in a half to finish.  This time it took only 20 minutes.  Here are 5 easy steps to help you achieve a successful braid out.

  • First step is to section hair into 4 or 6 sections
  • Second step is to use a creamy leave in conditioner
  • Third step is to apply the leave in to the section you wish to braid ( I like to twist the ends instead of braiding all the way down)
  • Fourth step is to apply a natural oil to the ends of the hair.
  • Fifth step is to unravel the hair and fluff
I have to say that I'm in love with the braid out. Check out my results.

I woke up like this!!
