Twist outs have never been my strongest area when it comes to natural hair care, mainly because i’m a bit impatient and i guess you can say a tad bit lazy haha.
I’m a believer in the least amount of manipulation for your hair, pulling and tugging sometimes cause damages, it may not be extensive at first but it can lead to that. This is why twist outs can be quite helpful, as it is also a protective style, which doesn’t require much, a few will do just fine.
I’ve been asked numerous times about how i keep my hair looking so healthy and full of life. I honestly don’t do an awful lot. I basically keep it moisturised, i also do a lot of styles that will ensure it stays protected, i try to eat healthily and stay in shape, these factors do help believe it or not!
So basically this is quite a quick and easy process. The products i’ve used are:
2.Eco styling gel
I made sure to detangle my hair, with a wide tooth comb after i’ve saturated it with water, not drenched otherwise it’ll take a longer time to dry.
I then use my moisturiser to soften it up, add a bit of coconut oil to seal in the moisture. Then use a pea size amount of gel to ensure that the twist stay in tact, this will make them last longer too.
I apply all of the products mentioned to each twist. I let it stay over night, then take them down the following day.
I think the trick is not to mess about with the hair too much, otherwise all the curls will be lost and that’s how we arrive at unsuccessful twist outs haha.
That’s how i get a bit of definition in my hair. Sometimes i do two to three twists using the same products and i get similar results. Hope this helped.
Thanks for stopping by.
