- Wear smaller twists to make them last longer.
For some naturals, twisting down to the very ends of the hair can lead to twist-outs with frizzy ends. An alternative method is to twist until just before you reach the ends of your hair and then coil these ends around your finger.
- Twist hair when 25% dry.
Twisting on dry hair will produce a twist-out that only lasts for a short period; it’s important to twist on wet or damp hair in order to achieve optimal definition and a longer lasting style. Avoid twisting on hair that is 100% wet; fully wet hair is more prone to breakage via tension while twisting.
- Protect your hair during your beauty sleep.
Minimize frizz by using a satin bonnet; for those with medium to long hair, put your twist-out into 10-12 big twists and cover with a satin bonnet. In the morning undo the big twists and fluff into your style. For those with shorter hair, there is no need to re-twist prior to bedtime. Simply cover with a satin bonnet; in the morning, remove the bonnet and fluff your hair.
