Over the past few weeks, I have been on an adventure. Since cutting my hair, I have been on a quest to find what styles work best for my new, shorter hair. I remember in my earlier days of being natural that some of my favorite styles were comb twists and twist outs. With all of this in mind, I figured I would give several styles a try to see what works best!
1. Wash & Go
I did a simple wash and go with EcoStyler Olive Oil gel. I can definitely say that gel does make shorter hair curl up easily; however, it didn't have as much definition as I personally like. It's still a cute, quick style when I'm in a rush.
2. Twist Out
When my hair was longer, a twist out was my go to style. I figured I would give it a try on my shorter hair. For this style, I used Cantu Twist and Lock gel and although I liked it, it didn't give me the hang time I was looking for in the front. With my hair cut, my hair is longer in the front than in the back and I like for the front to hang a little lower. With this style, I wasn't able to achieve that. I did like the definition though unlike with the wash and go.
3. Coil Out
This is my new go to style for this hair length! I used EcoStyle Olive Oil gel again and took small sections, detangled them and made finger coils. I allowed my hair to dry for a full 24 hours and then untwisted my hair. It made beautiful coils and the best part is that it lasted a week without retwisting. Love it!
