I used 1/2" size twists for this post. Stay tuned because I'm going to show the results of using larger twists. I also did a braid-out using the same size 1/2" braid. Stay tuned, that's coming up next. The most obvious difference is that the braid-out created a tighter pattern, but there appeared to be less shrinkage. It kind of doesn't make sense because you would think that the looser curl pattern would create longer hair, but that not the case. The difference is very subtle in shrinkage (about 1/2" more length with a braid-out on this hair). These are the major reasons why I prefer braid-outs over twist-outs, but we'll talk about that later. I should also mention that the twist-out was a little more voluminous and I guess that's why women who love "big hair" prefer twist-outs over braid-outs.
