"I did some small twists and wore those for a few days and now I have the best twist out I've ever had. But I can never seem to keep the results for more than a day, and I REFUSE to put all those twists back in every night. Anybody have any suggestions on how to maintain the definition overnight? I usually just put my bonnet on and pray for the best in the morning!."Jamila responds:
As with any protective style, always remember to moisturize. Before setting your hair for the night, I suggest spritzing with water or another moisturizing agent and sealing your ends with an oil or butter. Here are two simple ways to maintain your twists and twist outs for days!
-Pineapple: Pineappling refers to putting your hair at the crown of your head and securing it with a loose ponytail. Check out CurlyNikki's pineappling method here. If your hair is shorter, check out the multi-pineapple.
-Retwist: It may seem like a pain, but retwisting your hair at night is one of the best ways to maintain the definition of your twists. Don't worry-- you don't have to do mini twists every night to get the same look, you can retwist in bigger sections and get similar results! Check out two video tutorials below:
