ORS Twist and Loc Gel

I did a twist out last night using IC Fantasia Gel, ORS T&L gel and some Leave in Infusium 23.

I sectioned my hair in quarters, doing the front portions first. On the first 1/4 I used all products listed above. I noticed my hair was drying quickly quite stiff. I like hold, but not hard.

I experimented and did the next 1/4 using only ORS and castor oil. The results were awesome. It seemed that without the gel the ORS could do its job better. So I finished all the hair that way.

I did smaller twists than usual but I love, love, love the results! My hair is soft (for the most part...RIP IC) and the definition is amazing. I am posting pics of the twists, after I took them out and the now (after a whole day of rain and humidity).

I need this style to withstand 13.1 miles and humidity in the morning.

My hubby told me that my hair looked cute today!

I am was so excited because he hasn't been exactly favorable of my hair experiments lately. Not that he is against my natural hair but he liked my hair before I had to "experiment" better. He is being patient and bearing with me awaiting length and luscious curls.

I have noticed that our husbands, fiances and boyfriends have mixed feelings about hair journeys. Some are supportive, some not so and others no opinion at all.

So I want to know what is your experience has been with your SO during your quest to Curly-dom and how dealt with it.

Update on Me

Hey Curly Girls. I am trying to upload new pics and my latest styles, but my internet is holding me back...Argh!

I finally received the Kinky-Curly in the mail and I am ready to give it a try on a twist out as well as just a curl definer. I will definitely post results for curious curlies.

I have the McDonalds Half Marathon this weekend provided the weather permits (we are expecting a NorEaster). For that reason I will be getting braids again this week, for the race not the storm. Ha.

I am attaching a pic of my hair I took my last braids out as well as after wash, no product.

My hair really seems to be growing but I haven't done an official length check.
