Finally I can share with you what I have been using over the past week to achieve my super defined twist out!
Here they are…
For my initial twistout I used just the Reve Essentials on freshly washed hair. That twist out came out eh. After a few days of rocking that I decided to re-twist again but this time I wanted to seal my hair after I applied the leave in product(reve). Below you will see how my hair looked with just the Reve in it.
The day after these picture I retwisted. I sprayed my hair with water, applied reve essentials then sealed with JC nourish and shine. When I unraveled my twist I was left with super defined moisturized twist out. That is when I decided to tease you all on facebook. lol
If I am not mistaken I wore this twist out for about 2 days before I washed my hair so I could re-test these products to make sure that it was not just a one time wonder. What I love about this combo is that after MINUTES of having the twist in I unraveled one to twist it again and look! it was already taking form.
I put in small/medium twist that it why my hair looks more defined.I kept the twist in for about 2 days. I don’t think I’ll do that again. (For some reason, I can not leave in twist for more than a day or not my hair will start to feel dry and it gets knotty). I undid them last night after getting home.
I pineappled my hair last night and took this shot this morning.
Things I would do diffently next time are: Apply an actual leave -in like CJ smoothing lotion or CHC ultimate hair treat before applying reve . Make bigger twist. Not leave twist in for more than a day.
Thanks for reading!!!

Immediately after I posted my last post, I washed and detangled my hair in order to start fresh on my weekend hairstyle. I washed with CON Argan oil shampoo and detangled with Gvp Conditioning balm. I then parted my hair into 4 quarters and distributed some SheaMoisture sheabutter LI in each section.
I sealed with a little bit of argan oil and applied some Xtreme Wetline gel to each little section before I started twisting.
**If using this gel for twisting… Please be light handed. Unlike me I added a lil too much when I started twisting and the section turned white. Took a long time to absorb into my hair. So don’t use a lot.**
I stopped twisting before I reach the ends. I can not remember how many 2 strand twist I did, but I added a perm rod to the end of each one.
Recently I have been using my hooded dryer to speed up the drying process but I’ve noticed that my crown dries and my ends remain wet. So I decided to pile all my twist on the top of my head and wrapped a hair net around them like so.
I found that this helped my ends rather than letting them hang while the rest of my hair dried quickly. There is one thing that I hate about twistouts, braid outs ect., and that is waiting for my hair to completely dry before unraveling. So I ended up taking the twist down before they were 100% dry lol smh!!
In the morning my hair was dry the whole way but I was left with some frizz in the crown section (the problem child)
This was my final look for the day
Overall the only 2 things that I would change for the future is not applying to much get to each section and letting my hair dry completely to reduce frizz.
