Three Strand Twistout, Product Reviews and a Bonus

I decided to try a three strand twistout for Thanksgiving! As you know, I’ve done three strand twists to create a bun and I’ve always told myself I would likely never do a three strand twistout. It just seemed like it would take entirely too long to twist it.

Based on the poll, the majority voted for a twistout, but Shelli from Hairscapades suggested a three strand twistout. I decided to just go for it.

I washed and deep conditioned my hair before I twisted it. My hair was sooooo moisturized, but I used a ton of new products. I pre-poo’d with Vatika – Enriched Coconut Hair Oil (haven’t used it in a while), washed with my standard Selsun Blue shampoo due to my scalp, conditioned with NuNAAT Intensive Hair Mask (from my November CurlBox), then applied Giovanni’s Direct Leave-in (first time trying it).

The nuNAAT intensive hair mask is wonderful. It has a pleasant, light fragrance. It’s very creamy, which is one reason I generally like conditioners in jars. I followed the directions and left it on for 20-30 min. When I rinsed it out, my hair was soft and moisturized.

I am generally a huge fan of Giovanni products because I have yet to find one that I didn’t like. I was perusing Whole Foods after work on Wednesday and spotted it, so I figured I’d test it out. Now I see why it is so highly recommended. You can feel that it’s holding moisture in your hair. I’ve only used it once, but I’m pretty sure I’d buy it again. Another winner from Giovanni!

Here’s my twistout.



For good measure, here are my twists in October 2011 compared with my twists now. My hair is getting long! *squeal* You can also see the difference in a two strand twist vs. a three strand twist.



My sissy had a Great Thanksgiving/Birthday Braidout, so she gets featured!
