Twist Series: Growth & Length Retention IV
|Micro twists (real hair)|
- I want to know how often should you moisturize in twists? I tend to do it everyday, and my hair ends up fuzzy!
I moisturize 1x a week, thus minimizing frizz, fuzz, and shrinkage. I'm a big believer that if a moisturizer is doing what it's supposed to do, one wouldn't have to use it daily. Try experimenting with other products if the one you are using just isn't keeping your hair moisturized. Additionally, look into what you are using for your deep conditioner. In my experience, a good deep condition and moisturizer on the day of twisting is key! (Other than this method, you can plait your twists until they airdry to minimize the fuzz.)
- at what length should you start wearing twists for length retention? i have about eight inches of hair all around and any time i try to do twists, it just looks ridiculous if i don't pin it up into a style. should i just refrain from doing twists until i get more length?
You can start wearing twists at any length that you are able to do so. I will admit that when my hair was shorter, I felt ridiculous wearing twists to work. However, after playing with them for some time, I was able to find a "suitable" style that was comfortable for me. Eight inches is actually a good length for versatile twist styles. In the next post, I'll include some pictures of style ideas for all lengths. Stay tuned ...
