Whether you’re relaxed, transitioning, or full blown natural, we can all agree on the enormous frustration that comes after a failed Twist-Out. You’ve done your research, stayed up watching YouTube videos, and even splurged on a few products, and still for some reason the Twist-Out was a major fail. We’re here to tell you the only for sure way to perfect at Twist-Out is through trial and error. Now you’re thinking ''So wait, you mean that I have to keep spending money on all these products and ''maybe'' I’ll find the right one?'' Not necessarily, we’ve done a little research ourselves and curated a list of our top 4 go to products for the perfect Twist-Out, all for the lowest price!
1. Up first is the OGX Biotin & Collagen Conditioner. Having hydrated hair is a major key to a great Twist-Out. OGX’s Biotin & Collagen Conditioner combines ingredients like vitamin B7, collagen and hydrolyzed wheat protein. This sulfate free conditioner will add shine and volume to any hair texture.
2. A good cream curl definer will do just the trick when your looking to moisturize and smooth your hair. Our cream of choice is none other than the Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. Besides the fact that this product has won Allure Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Awards 2 years in a row, this light weight creamy formula is sure to moisturize your tresses while combating frizz. Combining ingredients such as shea butter, neem oil, and silk protein the Curl Enhancing Smoothies works wonders for anyone who is relaxed, transitioning or natural.
3. Maintaining that beautiful ''S'' pattern curl is the most important part of the hairstyle. The products you use to hold your hair play a large role in the definition you get from your Twist-Out and how long it will last. Eco Style’s Black Castor & Flax Seed Oil gel is one that holds a special place in our hearts. Not only does this gel offer UV protection but it also has a maximum level 10 hold! Stated to help grow and repair hair, this product combines flaxseed, castor oil, and wheat protein to give a weightless hold. Oh, and it smells amazing!
4. Taking down our Twist-Outs is when most of our frustration occurs. Either we take it down too soon and its not dry or we take it down without using oil and its super frizzy. Having extreme frizz after you’ve spent all night twisting your hair can be annoyingly disappointing. We recommend always using an oil when you unravel your twist. Our oil of choice is the Creme Of Nature Argan Oil Gloss & Shine Mist. This oil which can also be used as a heat protectant, protects and repairs dry hair. With anti-humidity properties and real argan oil this product is sure to be your go to for combating frizz.
To be completely honest, this hair game is one of trial and error, but having a good starting lineup takes out some of the hassle. We would love you to see some of your Twist-Out styles so be sure to tag us @boxbeautyco !
