The post below this one was a twist-out. I did the same thing as I did with the braid-out except instead of 20-30 single braids all over my head I did 12-15 single twist. Notice how the twist-out gives a loose wavy look while the braid-out gives a tigther wavy look. Just an observation. One major bonus with the braid-out is that it lasts much longer than the twist-out. My twist-out started having a limpy look by day 2, while the braid-out is still going strong at day 4, actually as the days go by with the braid-out it looks nicer because the hair falls a little better as the wave loosens.
TIP: One thing my loctician told me is when I do the braid-out to use lock butter or hair oil on my fingers as I braid each braid because it moisturizes the hair and it causes less strain on the hair which can stress locks....(I use Carol's Daughter Lock Butter and Tui Hair Oil)
