My hubby and I went on a date and it was raining like crazy! My hair got soaked, but because it was in twists, my hair still looked OK and even if it didn't, it surely wasn't going to ruin our night. Between keeping up with 2 teenagers and a 2 year old, we both needed a break!
|My hair was so wet. I'm glad my hair drank the rain water instead of sitting at dinner with water dripping in my food!|
Once we got home my hair was dry. I looked in the mirror at my hair and was shocked at how full it was. It was late and I remember saying, "man, if only I could get my hair to look like this everyday!"
The next morning, I thought about what I had done to my hair prior to going out, how the rain wet my hair and how full, soft and the real kicker, how moisturized my hair still was once we got home. Usually when you get rained on, you're lucky if you have any moisture let alone a cute style when it's all said and done. So I decided to give this try:
- First I place a nice amount of my oil mix to my hair. I divided it into four sections and focused on one section at a time.
- Next I styled my hair exactly how I did in the above picture. It was a really simple style. I held my head down, did a french twist to the back section and stopped at the top of my head. I then used 2 bobby pins to secure my hair leaving the front section out.
- I then took the remaining hair that was left out and swooped it over to the side and secured with bobby pins leaving the pieces that fell out, so the style didn't look so refined and more on the effortless side.
- Last, I misted my hair with a nice amount of water (not soaking wet though!) and watched my twists plump up just as they had the night before.
If you too suffer from limp twist and want to fake the look of fuller ones, mist your hair with water before or after styling and watch the difference this makes!
What do you do to make your two-stand twists look fuller or am I the only one with this issue??
