I get these questions quite often, how do you achieve all that definition?? How do you split your twist without frizz?? How does it last so long?? And honestly, it's not as hard as you think. For some, it may take some time, but when you get the hang of it, girl you're going to do it with your eyes closed. I addressed this a few times on Instagram but I figure it should have a home on the site as it's frequently asked. So let's get to learning, take out your pen and paper kids, it's about to get real! Just kidding!!!
Step One - Foundation
"You can't build a great building on a weak foundation." Gordon Hinckley
Start with a clean hydrated foundation by shampooing or co-washing and deep treating using effective products. And while I'm on this subject lets debunk this Shampoo myth. Using natural shampoos and conditioners will not take away the protective oils from your scalp, no need to fear shampoos. Product buildup is the enemy of properly functioning hair.
Shampoo raises your hairs Ph by removing products so the cuticle can lift and accept moisture. Conditioners lowers your Ph back down to its normal range. If you just co-wash you risk weakening your cuticle layer and can possibly experience elasticity lost.
Step Two - Frame-work
Use a leave-in that helps hydrate and detangle your curls. Only detangle your hair with the leave-in, from there you would proceed to apply your styling cream of choice, ensure it offers moisture along with mild to strong hold depending on your preference. For twist-outs I prefer a mild hold for that soft bouncy feel.
Step Three - Styling
Now, this is an important part before twisting to get the best definition. You got to pay me for this tip! DEFINE your curls BEFORE twisting it. *what wow mindblown right* DO NOT brush your hair out after applying your styling product of choice. Once your hair is detangled via your leave-in, apply your styling product, define your curls and twist/braid it. Medium size twists or braids always do the trick. Your definition would be on point🔥and it would be much easier to separate when unraveling.
It's that simple, I hope this was helpful.
