Super Chunky Twist Out

Hey ya'll! Hope you are having a fabulous 2012 so far! This weekend I unleashed my hair for this bangin' chunky twist out right here:

  Alright, let me run down the list of everything I did to achieve this look. So sadly I remember the exact day that I put the twists in that made this twist out possible because it was the day Whitney Houston died :( 

That day I shampooed my hair with the Herbal Essence Rosemary and Mint sulfate shampoo.  Normally I wash my hair with the Honeywash sulfate free shampoo by Oyin Handmade but my hair was extremely dirty from the build up of all kinds of foolishness on my head (oils, creams, gels...you name it and it probably was on my hair).

After that I conditioned my hair with the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner for about 20 minutes and then proceeded to twist my hair into big chunky twists using World of Curls curl activator gel.

I wore those twists for almost two weeks and the night before I took them out I decided to "experiment."  I put my hair into bantu knots using the Kinky Curly Curling Custard:

And when I took them down I got this right here:

All the humidity in the air killed my curls from the bantu knot out. 

That's why I usually try not to get too fancy with it and stick to the basics because my hair is too porous to hold most styles for an extended period of time.

I didn't care for the look that much AND it got rained on.

So I twisted it back up that night while my hair was still wet into more big twists and rocked the twists for a whole day and unleashed them to get this:

now this was a winner! 

Every night I just retwist my hair to help preserve the look.  If you have any questions about the style, don't be afraid to leave them down below.
