HELP! Foiled Again: The Elusive Twist Out!
Ahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! Why, oh why doth thou forsake me, oh beauty of The Twist Out? I adore you...but YOU? You got no time for me! Why must you ask me to partake of Romeo & Juliet's cup of eternal slumber rather than escort me & my glass slipper to Cinderella's Ball? Answer me! ANSWER ME!!!!
Whew. Now that I got that out of my system, I need you to strap an "S" on your chest Curlies, 'cause Natural Dancer needs some natural help! I LOVE twist outs. I've loved them before I knew they even had a name. But they are a stranger to me; laughing in the face of my coils like an evil kid burning ants under a magnifying glass! I mean every time I think I'm about to look fly & my curlies spry...FAIL OUT. No Twist-outs for you!
So tell me, kiddos. What am I doing wrong? See the above pictorial? Yep, I really thought I was doing something this time. I looked at Curly Chronicles & Naptural85 You Tube videos until my eyes blurred, trying to figure this here thing out. They're technique is on point, & the proof is in the tresses! But me? Uuuummm, notsomuch. You see the pictures. Maybe it's the product? I used the teensiest smidge of S-Curl & even less Curl Enhancing Smoothie to keep it from being too dry. Next day: poofy, stretched out coils. GGGRRRRRRRRRR. (At least I had a pretty cool fro though. I bounced it around until my neck started hurting.)
So what are your thoughts? Can you help me achieve the Great American Twist? Or am I banished the Kingdom of Coils for all natural eternity???? Just help. Really. Please. For real. Oh, and the last picture - just showing my shrinkage. Turns out my curls shrunk even more after twisting than when I let the fro fly free. Go figure.
Let me know your tips if you will, Sugarlumps. I don't wanna be a twist loser!
There's 2 sides to every FRIZZ,
