A few weeks ago, while I had my natural hair out, I figured it would be a good time to tell you what I do to refresh my twistout! This is not to say that you have to use this method. I am just sharing with you what I do to achieve desired results for my hair type.
Things You May Need:
1. Detangling tool (I use my fingers)
2. Water in a spray bottle
3. Styling creme of chioce
For this style I’ve started with a week old twist out that I’ve put in a bun.
After I have gathered all of the tools I will need and my hair products, I begin by splitting my hair into four workable sections. The top two sections I split where I want my part to be.
Starting with the bottom sections I did a few simple things:
1. Seperate a medium size peice from the section of hair I’m working on.
2. Spray my hand with water. Yes, my hand. I do not spray water directly on the hair. That way I can control how wet my hair becomes. I spray just enough to dampen the hair and lightly finger detangle to remove any shed hair.
3. Apply my Shea Butter mix to the section therefore completing the moisturize (water) and seal (Shea Butter mix) technique.
5. Twist the section to the end and give the end of the twist a twirl.
6. Repeat until entire head is in twist.
I let my twists set for about a day after I do them to let them air dry. This means that I usually do my hair on the weekends when I’ll be home with no real place to go. If I do have to go out I just wear the style outside as it drys!
A day later, after the twists were completely dry I applied some makeup and unraveled the twists.
I separated the hair where it naturally clumped in order to avoid unnecessary frizz. I then gave it a small tease at the roots to hide the parts and then I was ready for the day!!
Whelp! Thats it! If this wasn’t detailed enough please leave any specific questions you may have below!
P.S. Take a look at my About Me page! I also have a previous hair post about a hair day that I had with my SIC (sister in Christ) !!!
