Loose Twistout with KinkyCurlyYaki Afro Coily Clip Ins

Folks have been asking me whether you could style my KinkyCurlyYaki Afro Coily Clip Ins, and while my gut reaction would be to say no duh, I realized some people just need to see stuff in action before they believe it. Well I went ahead and did a super chunky, loose twistout with the hair just to see how it held up with moisture and product, and I’d have to say – it looked pretty darn good!

What I Used

My hair was washed and prepped with Fantasia Haircare’s Aloe Oil line.

Afro Coily clip ins were set in 15 chunky, loose twists with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-in Conditioner and Miss Jessie’s Stretch Silkening Cream (I’ve had beef with Miss Jessie’s before, but I received this from CurlKit and I’m testing it out – so far it’s alright, but haven’t used it on super wet hair).

The Process

How Long It Lasted

Now I did these twists on a Friday morning, right before heading to Nashville for Dollar General’s A Day of Beauty (btw check out fellow blogger Christina of Love Brown Sugar’s recap here), and took them down on Saturday morning. I then wore the look until Wednesday night, either plopping on a bonnet, or sometimes putting my hair into two huge twists before the bonnet. Every day, I would spray some more of the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-in Conditioner on the Afro Coily, and if I was really feeling extra, I’d use the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Perfect Edges for some control around those parts.

Now I will be honest and say my own hair was super dry by Wednesday – I wasn’t spraying anything on it or using any moisturizing creams, and since it was all the way underneath and between layers of clip ins, moisture really wasn’t getting to it. For this reason, I’d suggest only wearing this style, or any style with clip ins where your hair is still exposed – and I’ll do a future video on how to wear the look while protecting most of your hair – for a few days.

What do you think of this look? Do you manipulate your kinky extensions or do you wear them as is?

  1. I’m rocking clip ins right now as we speak. I love the versatility of the look. I haven’t tried a twist out yet but best believe I will be now!

  2. Looks great! I love the way it looked when you first took out the twists. Blends really well. I’ve yet to wear clip-ins or anything but I’d most likely do something similar.
