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.
