Side note: I found that the twist-out looks much better if I leave my hair twisted for 24 hours or more before taking out. You could also try a hooded dryer to speed up the drying process, but I'm not really on that.
So at the end of April, I cut my hair to look like this:
Below is what a wash 'n' go looks like with the assymetrical cut
And finally below is what the twist-out I wrote about here AND here looks like:
Sorry about the blurry pics (had to steal them from Facebook). Anyway, I don't know if you can tell because of all the different textures, but my hair has grown a ton since April. I don't have any reason to straighten it, so I probably won't and you'll just have to take my word for it.
I LOVE the twist-out though and just like the wash 'n' go it starts doing it's own thing after a while, which is so much fun to me (y'all know I'm easily amused).
