PROTECTIVE STYLES (twists)
The two-strand twist has been a favorite in the natural hair community for a long time. It is low maintenance and a great way to protect your curls. How to get your twists to look like this make take a little finessing, but we have faith in you! Here is simple guide to help you achieve the perfect twist every time:
To start a great two-strand twist, your hair should be slightly wet. A clean foundation always helps initially (you can also achieve amazing twists on 3 and 4 day hair!). Wash your hair thoroughly with our Egyptian Rose African Black Soap shampoo to set the mood.
Blot excess water from your hair and part in 4-8 sections, depending on hair length. Apply a small amount of our Totally Twisted Ginger Almond Hair Butter to the section you are working on and smooth from scalp to ends.
Next, use one pump (or more for longer hair) of our Honey & Hibiscus Flaxseed Gel and distribute throughout the same section. Your hair is now prepped and ready.
Working on the same section, part hair into mini sections for the size twists you want and detangle gently with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb. Two-strand twist hair from roots to ends. A little spiral twist at the ends will give you this look.
If a twist is too damp, whether with product or water, the curl will not set. Give your hair plenty of time to dry completely. Before bed, wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf to help keep your strands smooth and moisturized.
