Stretched Twist Out Results

I told you I would share my results after checking out Whitney’s twist out method.  I actually liked the way it turned out and plan on using it when I want a stretched look.
As the week progessed and the humidity picked up momentum, it slowly ended up in a different style.
Again,here are her instructions:
·         Start on stretched hair (however you achieve) – curl formers, flexi rods, blow out, flat iron, etc.
·         Part down middle and split into 2 sections.
·         Grab a medium size section of hair and lightly mist hair for moisture.  Be sure to use too much water to   prevent reverting.
·         Add shea butter from ends to root to seal the moisture.
·         Finger detangle to get rid of any shed hair, knots.
·         Twist similar to flat twists, which creates definition.  After each twist, wrap it in bantu knot to keep it    stretched.
·         Once you have completed the entire head, unravel each bantu knot, grab the twist by the end, wrap it around the head to stretch and bobby pin it so it remains stretched.  This process elongates the hair and helps define pattern. 
·         Wrap in scarf for the night.

I suck at bantu knots!
