An Unexpected Twist Out w/ The Mane Choice 24K Gold Twisting Gel

24k gold glistening twisting gelYes, fine hair can achieve volume. Let me clarify.

Fine hair with a moderate amount of density can achieve volume.

You can have fine hair but if you have a pretty decent amount of it, there are some products you can use like the Mane Choice 24 Karat Twisting Gel to pump up the volume.

1- Pre-poo’d with coconut oil (Because I don’t dare wash my fine hair that’s already prone to breakage without pre-pooing. Discover why the pre-poo is so important here)

2- Shampoo’d with Mane Choice Easy on the Curls Hydration Shampoo. Volume is more difficult to achieve on dirty hair or hair that’s got build up. That’s why I opted to shampoo vs. cowash.

3- Deep conditioned/strengthened with Mane Choice Since Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote Hair Mask. Moisturized hair that’s healthy with movement starts on the day you wash it; deep conditioning isn’t optional.

4- Cool Rinsed and finger detangled to seal the cuticle and prepare the hair for styling.

5- Working in sections, applied Mane Choice 3 in 1 conditioner as my leave in, layered with the Mane Choice 24 Karat Glistening Gold Twisting Gel.

6- Created 5-6 twists on each side of my head.

7- Allowed twists to air dry fully (for like 4 days) before releasing them.

I had quite a bit of frizz since I didn’t release my twists right away. I was sleeping on a satin pillowcase each night but that did nothing to alleviate the frizz monster that attacked when I tossed and turned every night.

It was actually not my intention to do a twist out. I was going to do some short term protective styling with my twists but then the hot bipolar NY weather took a break so I decided to set them free!

In spite of the frizz, this twist out came out better than anticipated. The Mane Choice 24 Karat Twisting Gel is so light that I was able to smooth a bit over some of the frizz areas and revive some of the definition.
