This is not a twist-out

I put my hair in tiny twists (that took about 4 hours to do) and kept the style in for about a week.

I got the tiny twists wrapped nicely for work so that I would not have to bother with it during the week. See, I am trying to reduce how frequently I manipulate my hair! Check out the Length Check post here.

 I felt I was due for a trim because my ends were not looking healthy. So when the week was over, I trimmed my ends very carefully. Remember I am trying to grow my hair which means a trim is a trim not a hair cut.

After that I put some coconut oil on my hair and bagged it so that I could give my hair a much needed moisture and conditioning boost (see post on bagging here). I did the conditioning and bagging for another 2 or 3 days. After conditioning, before bagging, I would put the twists in big braids.

When I took out the big braids, I got wavy twists which I was not expecting at all. A pleasant surprise I must say! I had not put any thought into what would come out of braiding the twists.

This is not a twist-out

I had the wavy twists for another 2 or 3 days. People kept asking if the wavy twists were a twist-out and in true Omozo style I would excitedly say "No" and proceed to explain how I got the look. I enjoyed the style (*whisper* and the compliments too!). If you try it out please send us pictures and let us know how it looks on your hair.

Keep it natural!
