Twist outs make a wonderful natural hairstyle and the best bit about them, you ask? They’re super versatile. They can be styled in a number of ways – from well-defined to voluminous and bouncy. However, many a time it is quite common to not get desired results. Read on to know 4 common twist out mistakes you may be making too!
1. You Haven’t Detangled
Detangling is super important girl! If you haven’t detangled your hair before starting off, then it is one of the biggest crimes you could commit in the natural hair book…ever! So in order to get the best definition, your hair should be free from knots and tangles completely.
2. Too Much Manipulation
Fluffing and picking is great to add volume to the twists. However, over-manipulation of the hair can make the twist outs completely disappear. Instead, lay off on the manipulation and see how the hairstyle lasts longer. If preserved well, this too can lend good definition to the hair.
If you’ve been sleeping with your twists on a cotton pillowcase it can lead to your worst hair nightmare – FRIZZ! We ain’t no fans of that now, are we? Make sure you use a good satin pillowcase or bonnet to keep the twists in place.
