Twist-outs after one week

Hi everyone,

Well, after wearing my twist-outs for the entire week here is how they look. I admit I went a bit overboard with the number of pics. I got a little hypnotized by the clicking shutter sound on my IPad camera.
I used castor oil and Eco-styler Gel (Olive Oil), what do you use to do your twist outs?

    Tina, Your twist-outs look great. I just read your post on the Washington Post and wanted to share my well wishes as you make this transition. I'm in the same space with regard to hair, but I came to mine a little late in the game :)Here's my first blogpost on the subject. take care,Adaeze

    Well, imo it does have a masculine look to it. Is there a way that you could flat iron it a bit and let it grow out some? The glasses look cute though

    @ Adaeze, thanks so much for your compliments. I'll be sure to check out your blog. @ Anonymous, thank you for your comments too, I hadn't thought about flat ironing my hair. Please let me know if that suggestion would be to straighten the texture, lengthen my hair or both? Thanks, I am working on my glasses wardrobe! 🙂

    You look fabulous. I loved your video when you cut off your locs. A site I like posted it and that's how I found out about you. Glad I found your blog.
