A good twist out isn’t too difficult, but making it last longer than a day or so can be a challenge. With the right amount of moisture and drying time a long lasting twist out can be easily achieved. Just follow these steps to give your twist out the perfect shine and flow.
1. Let your twists stay around for a while
Instead of re-twisting your hair every night try to leave it in for a while if your style isn’t time sensitive. Even if it’s a few days or two weeks with the proper moisture you can wear a twisted up-do, cute mini-twists, and several creative other twist related styles. This will serve as a protective style and also enhance the twist definition when undone.
2. Apply the right amount of moisture
Along with water, make sure to add oil, conditioner, and other products that’ll keep your hair moisturized. Your hair will need moisture to stay strong and give your hair the right amount of flow when the twists are finally undone. If you’re wearing your hair in twists for a few days before you untwist keep adding moisture to the twists each day.
3. Use a paraben and sulfate-free gel
To avoid frizz and keep your twist-out looking amazing when its time to come undone, try adding an extra kick of gel or custard. Make sure you choose the right product that won’t leave your hair feeling crunchy and brittle. While you’re twisting your hair add some natural gel and oil to define your curls even more.
4.Allow your hair enough time to dry
Twist out’s tend to look better when you add some moisture, but whether you decide to twist up completely drenched or partially wet hair it’s important to give yourself time to dry. Drying time depends on hair density, length, and hair type. Only you know exactly how long you’ll need for your hair to dry completely. Some hair will only be completely dry overnight if the twists are partially wet, but not soaking.
