Two weeks ago I had the best twist out ever. My hair held up great through the weather, and re-twisting every night helped my hair stretch remarkably well.
However, knowing my hair I knew the following week would suck.
So what was I doing wrong?
•Re-twisting by spraying to much water.
Applying to much water allows hair to shrink up a lot. Or revert back to it normal pattern.
•Not applying enough shea butter.
Not applying enough shea butter causes the hair to dry out easily, and frizz up.
Most curlies love to use gels while styling.
If are going to us gels I suggest:
Twist your hair first with a light oil, then use the gel to seal. The Twists are going to shrink, that’s the nature of the style, but twisting without the gel will at least give you a little more length.
I stopped using gels in early spring so my hair won’t shrink as much. Since then my hair styles have been awesome.
I hope this post helps. 🙂
God bless beauties.
