Getting the Best Twists
Every style is a learning step. As you learn how to master your styles, remember to keep note of what worked and what did not work. Here is how I do my twists and some tips that have helped me create juicy twists.
- Hot oil treatment using Vatika Hair Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
- Co-wash using Trader Joe's Conditioner Balanced Moisturizing Nourish Spa.
- Deep conditioning treatment overnight using Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp & Tamanu Grow & Strengthen Treatment Masque
- Applied my swag oil mix on my scalp and did a scalp massage
- Used Giovanni Direct Leave-in conditioner as my leave in
- Let my hair air dry up to 80% dry
- Part my hair to create a side bang and use clips to hold down each section.
- Twist Tip 1:
- Make sure to twist your hair in the direction that you want your hair to fall
- Taking a small section of hair, apply Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
- Apply a little EcoStyler Gel (Argan) and make sure to apply to the ends
- Apply a tiny bit of Shea Butter to the ends.
- Twist Tip 2:
- By applying a moisturizing before a gel, it reduces the crunchiness that gels give to the hair
- Start twisting. When you get to the ends, you can comb the ends to smoothen it and then twirl the hair around your finger to lock in the curl
- Twist Tip 3
- Do not borrow hair from another section. If you run out of hair while twisting, just twirl the remaining section with your finger (like a finger coil)
- Twist Tip 4
- If you see any whitish residue, gently spritz that twist with a little water and massage the product into the twist to help it penetrate into the hair shaft.
