5 simple tips for an amazing twistout on natural hair (Video)

So, 90% of the time, I am wearing my hair in two-strand twists. I have been wearing this protective style for years. Once I ‘discovered’ that I could do this, it was on! And I love the twistout that I get.  And I have been getting consistent results using this technique for years!

After washing my hair, I detangle and twist my hair at the same time. I only started doing this recently and it has cut down my twisting time significantly. Like, significantly…..it still takes me hours to complete the style, but not nearly as much time. I wash, detangle and twist every fortnight, and about 3 days before my next wash, I unravel the twists and wear it out. I have found that it is easiest way to protect my ends, and have a low manipulation style for an extended period.

I have created a step-by-step guide to how I create my twistouts.

Five Twistout Tips – Step by Step Guide

Do you know the secret to my twists to make them stay almost two weeks? I braid or plait the first inch or so of hair! So here are the rest of the steps that I take to achieve amazing results!

  • Make sure your hair is properly detangled. I finger detangle, then use a wide tooth comb
  • Well hydrated and moisturised hair helps make for a smooth twist. I create my twists on damp hair to cut down on breakage. I try not to manipulate dry hair to often. I also use the LCO method for prepping my hair i.e. I layer my leave-in conditioner, then a styling cream then an oil (in the form of a pomade).
  • Plait the first inch of hair then twist
  • Keep your fingers close to where the two strands meet instead of being lower down the length of hair.
  • Twist each individual strand before twisting the strands together.

And here’s the video! Enjoy! Let me know what you think and what are your favourite products to use for your twistouts.

Festive New Year’s Eve party makeup on dark skin!

New Year's Eve party makeup tutorial main

 

It is the very end of 2016! The very last day! I am not going to go into how crazy this year has been. I’m going to keep it really upbeat.  This is a festive New Year’s Eve party makeup tutorial that will also work for the upcoming Carnival fete season.  We are officially in the Christmas period, but since Christmas night, deejays have been playing the latest soca offerings for 2017.  We doh make joke with Carnival!

I decided on this look when I saw a video posted by the legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath, portraying her latest Skin Labs offerings.  Cream and powder metallic and glitter eye shadows in silver, bronze, gold and copper.  I did not pick any of these kits but loved the look so much for its simplicity and its impact.  

Here is the look

I could not decide on the lip so I am showing you both!

I am using many of my favourite products for 2016 as well as some more recent purchases.  If you don’t have the exact products that I used, pick up some great inexpensive alternatives from NYX, and ColourPop Cosmetics.  

The complete video tutorial is below and I have listed all the products used.
