My Blow Out Process for Natural Hair + OOTD

Hey kurlies,

There is nothing like a blow out! Blow outs equal full, stretched hair and tons of fun! In this post, I'll describe the steps I take to blow my hair out. 

 The products:
Wide tooth comb, hair clips, a dollop of my homemade moisturizing hair mix, Fantasia IC Heat Protector Straightening Serum, and a very old Gold N' Hot blow dryer (it's definitely time for an upgrade but it will do for now)

This is an up close look at the Fantasia IC  Heat Protector Straightening Serum. I really like the way this feels on my hair. It gives my hair a soft, moisturized feeling.  

The Process: 
#thetwists #shrinkageisabeast

1. I started out with freshly washed and detangled hair. See my wash regimen here.
2. I let my hair air dry for thirty minutes while I polished my toe-sies! 
TIP: Letting your hair air dry first will cut down on the amount of time you have to use on your hair. Less heat, less opportunities for heat damage! 
3. My hair was slightly damp after 30 minutes. I left my hair in the twists and placed my twists in four sections using the hair clamps to hold them in place. 
4. To blow dry, I would undo one twist and apply my homemade moisturizing cream and the heat protectant. Then I would hold my hair tightly to use the tension method as I blew my hair out. No combs or brushes were used during the blowdrying processes!!! Also, I would alternate between hot and cold air when blow drying my hair. 
5. When the section was dry, I would use a wide tooth comb to comb the section of hair. 

Results of Blow Out: 
Big hair, don't care

I placed my hair in four Bantu knots while I got dressed, which took about 45 minutes. When I took my hair down and fluffed it, I got this...

Wait for it!
Wait for it! 

BAM!!! Got compliments all day! 

The bigger the hair, the harder they stare!  

Quick outfit of the day: Kimono (thrifted), tan spaghetti strap top (Forever 21), 
and black bodycon skirt (Forever 21)
