The desire for that perfect twistout is something that every naturalista strives to have. It can even be more difficult to maintain this style for kids, however with the tips I will share that has help us, you will be able to do it.

TIP 1 :: DO ROPE TWISTS
Rope twists give the best definition because not only are you doing the standard twisting method to create the curly effect a twistout gives, you are also twisting one strand first before you twist the other strand on top of it. This method of twisting minimizes frizz that can make hair appear messy.

TIP 2 :: USE GEL
After sectioning the hair, apply your non-glycerin moisturizer of choice and then a non-alcoholic gel. The gel helps to further keep the frizz at bay and freezes the curl pattern the way you want it.

TIP 3 :: STAY AWAY FROM GLYCERIN

When used in humid areas, Glycerin has a way of pulling moisture from the air and putting it into the hair. This results in very puffy twistout styles. Look for products that don't have glycerin in it to twist your hair.
