I tried something slightly new over the weekend. I decided to do a twist out on slightly damp hair in hopes that I would gain some volume and more length with this technique. Although it doesn't have a ton of definition, I like that it is full of body with a loose wave. Here's what I did:
Added dime size amounts of both Chi Silk Infusion and Aveda Destination Smooth to each 1/2 inch section of hair I blow-dried. The Chi Silk Infusion coats the strands preventing frizz, and the Aveda Destination Smooth acts as a heat protectant, and humidity blocker. Both products offer great shine!
I blow-dried each 1/2 inch section of hair until damp on a medium warm setting using my Denman brush to add some additional body.
After I blow-dried each section, I used a dime size amount of Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia to twist the hair. This has the consistency of a thin hair milk, yet it didn't make my hair revert.
I had about 15 large twists and let them sit for two hours until dry. The result was hair that is fluffy, soft, with a slight wave. If you want to try this style, keep the following in mind:
- Larger twists left in a short period of time will yield mermaid-like waves
- Larger twists left in overnight will yield more of a deep wave
- Smaller twists left in a short period of time will yield a smaller waves
- Smaller twists left in overnight will yield more of a defined curl pattern
