Hairstyle | Big Fluffy Twist Out

Today I wore a twist out for the first time in months. I've not been able to wear a twist out in so long as the curls haven't lasted recently. I tried the 3 strand twist method this time around (instead of the 2 strand twist), twisting freshly washed hair before bed and unravelling this morning. I used  tutorial from Alyssa but I used tights as one of the 'strands' as shown in my braidout tutorial . It gave my hair the perfect definition at the ends, blending the multiple textures on my head. 

It's already dark by the time I get home from work so the lighting in the snaps isn't the best, but you can get an idea of how big my hair is. 

Ever since I started committing to my transition to texlaxed (more info ) my hair has so much more body and fullness. I don't think my hair has ever looked so thick. At the beginning of my transition, I must admit I felt a little overwhelmed by my thicker, fluffy (and seemingly gravity defying) strands. Now I can't wait to chop off my lifeless bone straight ends, though I'm not going to just yet. 

How have you been styling your hair lately?

Hairstyle | Side Front Twist & Braid

Side twists and braids are naturally my go-to option when I don't feel like bunning or using my hot tools and I came to rely on these hairstyles a lot whilst I was in Scotland last weekend.

To do this particular hairstyle I sectioned off the front portion of my hair, placing a rough parting about 2cm behind my ear on each side. I then split the front section into two, parting it on the side in line with the arch of my right eyebrow. I twisted both sections around my head before pulling them together on one side into a ponytail. I then braided the ponytail loosely, leaving out any short pieces of hair. After I reached the bottom I secured the braid with a hair tie and wrapped the short pieces of hair I left out earlier around the base of the ponytail to finish.

This hairstyle didn't take long to do and you don't need to be any good at braiding to try it either. I always find with braids and twists that the messier they are the better. 

What hairstyles have you tried lately?

Hairstyle | Super textured braidout

In the midst of filming a totally unrelated video for YouTube I thought I'd share today's hairstyle - a super textured braidout.

I've got so much texlaxed hair and 16 weeks of natural new growth now it's just easier to do my hair in several small braids as opposed to the 2-4 I used to do for my whole head. Doing several braids has kept the tangles at bay as putting them in has made me actually detangle my hair fully for a change. I'm so lazy usually and just throw my hair up in a bun 24/7 when relaxer day is imminent.

I think I did about 4-5 braids on each side for this style before bed and slept on them overnight before gently unravelling the next morning. With this many braids I end up with big, textured and fluffy hair. When I only do 2-4 braids my hair seems to stay more compact and smooth usually. I've always loved big hair - though not normally on me - but I'm really starting to love how thick my hair can at least appear with super textured styles.

Do you like to do braidouts?
