How I Stretch My Hair for a Twist Out

Hello everyone!  It's been a LONG while since I've blogged.  It seems like this month has just flown by!  But I'm back, and I'm here to show you in a series of blog posts how I have been wearing my hair over the past month. 

You may wonder how to stretch your hair for fuller and bigger twist outs.  Well I will show you in this post!

Usually, when I do a twist out on on freshly washed hair (without stretching) my results look like this:

Very defined hair - twist out day 1

To stretch my hair for a fuller twist out, I now pin my twists back with clips and the back with a pony tail holder.

 Which results in this look when fluffed.

See the difference?  As my hair grows, I love it's fuller, fluffier look.  I think I adore BIG hair!  I'm also discovering that while I appreciate definition, I also don't mind a little frizz.

On Day 5, it's obnoxiously huge!

What say you...do you like the fuller or more defined look better?


  1. Genius!! I would have never thought to use clips to stretch. I love the look of my 2nd & 3rd day twist outs.but they always looked (and felt) dry. So I would rewet my hair and so the vicious cycle of shrink age would begin.Most times with my twists would crumple and bend in odd directions while under my satin bonnet while sleeping. With using the clips I'll have better control. I'm definitely going to try this. Thanks Nita!

  2. I like the fuller version too. I always prefer my twists two to four days after the wash because the hair is fuller - yeah, a little frizzy but I don't mind that either. I'm actually okay with a little less definition if the hair looks fuller and softer. Good tips!
