Alternate Styles For Natural Hair: The Twist Out
Today's featured hairstyle is the ever so popular twist out. It is very popular with a lot of natural haired ladies and I absolutely understand why. It is super cute. This natural client chose not to have any heat on her hair today but wanted something that would last for a few weeks.
First thing first, I started by prepping the hair by using Silk Hydration by L. Jones products. First thing was the clarifying shampoo to remove all of the residue and product build up off the hair and start with a clean slate. Next was the moisture shampoo to add all of the moisture and silkiness back in. After that I used the daily conditioner then the leave-in conditioner.
Next I twisted her hair up. I used Nairobi foam wrap and a soft hold gel to twist it. The only bad thing about a twist set is that the dryer time is excruciatingly long. I am talking a minimum of two hours, and even longer for thicker hair. This client was dry after about two hours and some change. When getting twist sets, the hair has to be completely dry or else it will frizz up.
After her hair was dry, I put a little oil on my hands as I untwisted it. It turned out great and she loved it. She handled the dryer time like a pro, and had her laptop with her to pass the time.
For maintenance she can re-twist it at night or simply put a satin bonnet on at night. In the morning she can fluff with her fingers. Some people like it more the older it gets. She will spray with Silk Hydration by L. Jones miracle potion no9 to avoid it becoming extra frizzy.
