Stretched Twist Out

Long time no speak, but I'm back!  Hope you are doing well!

I tried to recreate a natural hairstyle that I saw on google images two weeks ago.  It didn't turn out that way, BUT I tried it lol:

Meh. I rocked it for two weeks regardless because it took 6 or 8 hours to do it.  I be dern.

Labor day weekend I took the twists down but left the flat twists along my hairline in.  I added some gold hair jewelry to the flat twists just because.

 I used Oyin Handmade's Burnt Sugar Pomade along with Olive Oil to help me take my twists down.

I planned on detangling my hair the next day so I banded my hair using cotton ponytail elastic bands made for children.  I get these particular ones at dollar tree:

please excuse that tag that is on display

I had somewhere to go and I didn't have high hopes for my banded hair turning out anything short of jacked up.  But I was pleasantly surprised when I took them all down.  My hair was pretty elongated and well preserved from the previous day:

One section that was released from the bands. The twist out is very elongated and well preserved.

I've banded my twist outs in the past, but I've always hated the outcome.  I believe the success of this go round is due to the fact that my twists were medium sized/small and therefore my twist out was well defined. So when I banded my hair, it was in small coils that could be stretched out.  Once it was released, the coils were stretched out and I did not lose definition in the process.

 The other times that I've tried stretched twist outs, they were done on a twist out from large/jumbo twists.  So once I banded my hair, the little bit of wavy definition I had, was completely lost and my twist out was ruined.

 And don't get me wrong.  I love my stretched out, undefined hair.  However, whenever I have attempted to band my hair from a twist out from big twists, my hair was not unified and didn't look like it was styled on purpose.

Banding my hair from a well defined twist out allowed my hair to maintain its shape and definition.

Give it a try and let me know how it turns out!
