My Most Defined Twist Out on my Natural Hair to Date



How in the world did I get all of that definition though right? It was hot as crap, humid as ish, and I was sweating like a mug, yet and still my definition is off the chain.

For starters, I didn't use my trusty Worlds of Curls curl activator gel as my moisturizer.  Worlds of curls curl activator gel is a humectant based product, and if you use it when it is significantly humid and/or the dew point is relatively high, then your hair will absorb the moisture from the atmosphere and it will cause your hair to POOF! 




This was just an experiment for me.  I wanted to see if my hair could be defined and moisturized at the same time.  I washed my hair with Suave's Rosemary and Mint sulfate shampoo and then conditioned it with Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner.  After that, I then moisturized my hair with Shea Moisture's Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner.  This product is discontinued, but you can still find it in some beauty supply stores and online too. 

As I found out with this experiment, it doesn't work to well for me as a moisturizer and is better suited to be used as a supplement to my moisturizer.  I also shellacked on some Hairveda Almond Glaze for good measure.  Why, I don't know as I already knew it doesn't provide moisture but I just wanted to use it anyway.



Overall, my was dry as a bone.  And that is why it kept its definition.  The thing is people, you can't have it both ways (at least "I" can't).  If I want a super defined twist out, then I will have to sacrifice moisture.  If I want moisturized hair then it can't be defined at the same time. It just doesn't work that way for me.



So in the end, I rocked this super defined twist out for that day, and then I immediately spritzed it down with water and drenched it in Worlds of Curls.  As I type this, it is currently one week after I added the Worlds of Curls to my hair and it is still soft and moisturized.

So my question to you is-have you been able to achieve super defined AND moisturized hair at the same time?  If so how?


Until we meet again ladies, be blessed <3

  2. Say it ain't so, I can't have moisture AND definition?! lol I can actually have moisture and definition in the cooler months. I'm in search now of a good product that will hold me definition now that it's much more humid out.

  3. Wow, this is lovely. How do you maintain your twist-outs for a whole week? How come it doesn't change form when you sleep?

  5. I have. I've noticed with the Let's Jam custard and the ORS twist and loc Gel, my hair does keep its definition AND is very soft and bouncy. So in my opinion, it's either those products or my hair being in good condition with my modified curly girl method or a combination of both.

  6. I have been able to, the key for me is wet hair and Qhemet Biologics products mixed prior( in a bowl )
    OR

    Dry stretched hair styled with a hair milk to rewet it a little and a styler type product over the twists.
