But this is how it starts. Ha. My soaking wet, sectioned, freshly washed and detangled hair. I use a light leave in, lately just some Infusium to coat my hair thoroughly, and then I go through each section with a small palmful of castor oil.
THEN here is the fun part. I open each twist back up and work in a generous amount of WetLine extreme gel, using my fingers to smooth it through. I then retwist and move on to the next section. I don't really consider it a twist out because the twists are so monstrously huge, and only dry about 30%. When I take them out, it's very much like shaking out a wash & go, but the roots are a little dry, so the direction the hair falls is set.
The pictures below are from the end of the next day. When i first take the twists apart, I just kind of shake them loose. They are wet enough that my hair still has a lot of movement and thus a lot of shrinking to do. A LOT of shrinking :)
I'm happy to report that with the hold of the gel, this set lasts a week solid with little tangling. I just sleep on my silk pillow case, and sometimes put it in a ponytail.
