I normally do braidouts when I want stretched hair because I know I’ll get consistent results. The same is not true when I do twistouts. Sometimes when I take the twists down, my hair is fuzzy and puffy before I even leave the house. Other times I have trouble getting the twists to stay so the end result looks messy and not as defined as I would like.
This time I decided to use something to give the twists some hold and definition. I reached for my Eco Styler gel (a staple) but thought maybe I should give the Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Creme a try. The only other time that I used it was to do a wash n’ go style on wet hair. I had really good results with it then but since I’ve been back to using my Eco gel I haven’t had much
use for it.

for a spiral curl on the ends
For this twistout I started with clean hair. First I applied my Paul Mitchell The Conditioner leave-in along with the Hollywood Beauty Olive Creme moisturizer. I wanted to make sure that there was plenty of moisture under the Curls Unleashed product because I remember it having a firm hold. I applied the Curl Defining Creme on top of the other two products and started doing two strand twists in medium size sections. At the front I did flat twists on either side of my middle part and for my bangs. Once all of the twists were done, I used small grey perm rods to spiral curl the ends. I always use end papers for this step because I don’t want any of the ends to slip off of the rod while I’m sleeping.
