Hello mane embracers, I hope your crowns are flourishing and your skin glowing. Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my natural hair blog.
If you’ve been following me for a while you know how much I love two strand twists and my hair is in twists 90% of the time. If you missed all the twists posts, catch up here.
So, let’s talk about different ways I add moisture to my twists. You don’t wanna install twists, fail to moisturize & instead of retaining length you lose it, right? Read on.
I install my twists on freshly washed, moisturized, braid stretched & air dried hair. I love installing twists on dry hair because it gives me more length than twists on wet hair.
How I moisturize my twists;
- Moisturize after every 2-3 days. This is where I spritz my twists with either water and Aloe Vera juice or water and leave in and then seal with butter. Lately I’ve been trying Cheri Spritz and it’s pretty good. I also did an IGTV on how I do it, check it out here and follow for more hair tips and inspo.
- Moisturize weekly. With weekly twists moisturizing sessions I lay products each at a time from the ends to the roots. I section my twists, start off with water spritz, apply the leave-in from the ends to the root, then seal with oils or butter and seal the ends with castor oil since they dry so fast.
- Baggy moisturizing method. When I’ve time to spare, this is my go to method. I apply the leave-in and butter then wear shower cap for an hour or more to moisturize. Leaves my hair super soft.
