Twistout Using Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Creme

I normally do braidouts when I want stretched hair because I know I'll get consistent results.  The same is not true when I do twistouts.  Sometimes when I take the twists down, my hair is fuzzy and puffy before I even leave the house.  Other times I have trouble getting the twists to stay so the end result looks messy and not as defined as I would like.

This time I decided to use something to give the twists some hold and definition.  I reached for my Eco Styler gel (a staple) but thought maybe I should give the Curls Unleashed Curl Defining Creme a try.  The only other time that I used it was to do a wash n' go style on wet hair.  I had really good results with it then but since I've been back to using my Eco gel I haven't had much
use for it.

Small Grey Rods are great
for a spiral curl on the ends
For this twistout I started with clean hair.  First I applied my Paul Mitchell The Conditioner leave-in along with the Hollywood Beauty Olive Creme moisturizer.  I wanted to make sure that there was plenty of moisture under the Curls Unleashed product because I remember it having a firm hold.  I applied the Curl Defining Creme on top of the other two products and started doing two strand twists in medium size sections.  At the front I did flat twists on either side of my middle part and for my bangs.  Once all of the twists were done, I used small grey perm rods to spiral curl the ends.  I always use end papers for this step because I don't want any of the ends to slip off of the rod while I'm sleeping.

When I woke early the next day, my hair was still damp so I decided to let it air dry completely rather than sit under the dryer.  The resulting twistout was so soft and defined I almost didn't believe it.  The thing I liked most was that even after fluffing and styling my hair there wasn't any frizz.  I like big hair and usually lose some definition when I separate and fluff.  I think I'm going to continue to
use this product when I want a nice twistout.  For now here are pics of my first try.
