F.A.Q.- Twist-n-Curl and Frizz Fighting

By January 27th, 202110 Comments

Hey Nikki! Just had a quick question about your twist-n-curl. When you take apart your twists how are you combating the frizz? Between fluffing and pulling apart the twists I just can get around the frizz! Also, are you twisting all the way down to the ends, or are you leaving the ends untwisted? I notice that your ends come out in perfect spirals and thats the look i want. Thanks !

F.A.Q.- Twist-n-Curl and Frizz Fighting
Do you have any DevaCurl Set it Free or 100% Shea Butter? If you don’t, please invest in one or both. I use these products to smooth the frizz that develops after separating and fluffing. My separation process usually involves quickly taking down the twists, and then separating some of those into 4 (the original ‘two strands’ become 4). Finally, I use my fingers like a pic to fluff, separate and add volume. Some frizz is going to happen…I embrace it because it adds character to my hair. The ‘bad’ frizz is abolished by squirting Deva Set it Free on my fingers and smoothing, or finger twirling the stubborn curls, or doing the same action with Shea butter. Both work equally well- Shea butter elongates the curl, while DevaCurl shrinks it some.

Also, day 3 or 4 hair usually has halo frizz, and applying Shea butter really helps fix this problem too! I simply scoop up a pea sized amount, melt between my hands, and apply to the crown of my hair with my hands in a downward motion. It lays down all the flyaways.

Oh, and yes, I twist to the tip…not that I think it matters. The roller completely smooths the hair out anyway.

hth!

    Hey Nikki,

    How do you get your hair to shine? Is there anything I can try to get my hair to have that pretty sheen?

    You answered my question before I even thought of it. LOL

    I just put some shea butter on my night time twists.

    Hey guys, if you go to the video section, she's posted a twist & curl demo from beginning to end. On another note, I just picked up some Lustrasilk Aloe (green and smells awesome) and used it to do my T&C and my hair is soft and fluffy. I added some coconut oil for shine after I untwisted and fluffed.

    Your ends are SOOOOO healthy….I know you don’t need it to be said but I am so proud of how you’ve babied your hair to where it is today. You are nothing short of the goal of where us curlies aim to be with healthy hair.

    Thanks so much for this! I swear you should have a day where you just answer questions about your twist-n-curl routine because I am brimming with questions, and from reading your comments I see I’m not the only one :o)

    I just ordered some shea butter. Naturally Me is having a 15% off sale right now. I’m hoping it will help with the frizz.

    OK, I am still confused! Do you but your rollers on twisted hair or twist out? After you twist your hair you let it dry or do you remove the twist immediately after you have completed twisting all your hair? Do you put rollers in from root to tip or just at the ends? Lastly I noticed that you use the curl forms are they what you use for your twist and curl or somthing different? Thanks :0)
