In my continued effort to combat frizz, I decided to try a twist out style. After reading several natural hair experts suggestions on how to tame the FRIZZ.
The best way to get that natural curly hair frizz control, is to either define your curls with a product or to create a defining style like two strand twists, dreadlocks, braids, pin ups, etc.
While you can only tame frizz with different techniques and products, but getting rid of it completely is nearly impossible. So here we go…
BTW: this is my first Twist Out. (wish me luck!!)
Wide Tooth Comb
Hair Dryer (optional)
Satin Scarf or Bonnet
Step 1: Wash and condition hair.
Step 2: Dried hair with cotton tee shirt (Do not rub hair while drying)
Step 3: Rub moisturizing cream (used “As I I Am Double Butter Daily Moisturizer) into the palm of hand and applied throughout hair, concentrating on the ends. Gently detangled hair with fingers
Step 4: Separated hair into small sections with fingers.
- A wide tooth comb can be used, but that will allow the scalp to be more visible.
Step 6: Applied a small amount of Twists n Locs Shea Butter Brown to the section; root to tip
Step 7: Held a section of hair in hand and separate it into two parts. Started twisting the two parts around each another until they made one long twist. Continued twisting these two strands until the end of hair was reached.
· Add a little more Twists n Locs Shea Butter Brown to the ends to hold these strands.
Step 9: Once finished twisting, air dry hair
Step 10: Covered hair with silk scarf/bonnet
Post Care (a.k.a, In the Morning)
1. In the morning, added little water to hair
2. Rubbed a little hair moisturizer/oil in hand
3. Untwist hair and separate the sections
4. Finger combed hair to loosen twists and create some volume
