Question Products For A Twist Out?

My hair is a mix between 3c and 4a and I was wondering what are some products needed for a twist out. like shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, hairspray (if needed) and mouse (if needed) or any other ones i should know about.

Well the shampoo & conditioner dosent really matter, just use a combo that you like that gives you good results. I use whats in my signature!
The products are whats important.. Ones that are TOO heavy for me leave my twistout looking unnatural and crunchy instead of soft and fluffy.

I like to layer my products a certain way no matter what i use. I usually put a quarter sized amt of oil on freshly washed hair (lately its just plain EVOO) then a leave in/moisturizer (on my avatar i used KBB hair milk), a tiny bit of some kind of gel (ecostyler or Aloe Vera Gel) & twist.. then i seal the ends with a butter for hold and moisture. To revive it the next couple of days i spray distilled water mixed with a little bit of whatever leave in I use on it. I used KCCC the other day as the gel but didnt like it, maybe I used too much? idk that stuff is too tricky to perfect lol!

Ive been looking for alternatives to the hair milk, some ive been recommended are Oyin Honey hemp, Beija Flor Naturals Creme Brulee, Afroveda Curl Define (i imagine w. this you wouldnt need the gel) & darcy botanicals madagascar vanilla creme. Unfortunately im waiting for all of these to come in the mail so i cant review them LOL!

I'm rocking a short cut, so I don't have enough of my own hair to twist, but I have a 8yo who I keep in twists and then let them down right before a wash.

For her hair I twist it wet and comb through a mixture of 1/2 shea butter (with olive oil, vitamin e oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and almond oil) and1/2 organics twist and loc gel. Sometimes when I want more hold I mix in some KK curly custard. I'll do this more this summer with the humidity. I part the hair into sections and comb this combination through each section. It appears a little white right after I'm done, but it dries clear.

I had great twist out results this week by using the Shea Moisture Deep Moisture Masque (sold @ target) to hold my twists in. It made them shiny and moisturized and had a lot of hold in the twist out!

As long as you have a product with moisture component, and one with a hold component you should be good. As Cassadie indicated, one product can serve both roles.

I wear a lot of braid outs and layer my products as well. After co-washing, I apply Darcy's Botanicals transitioning creme or hair milk, DB madagascar vanilla creme and DB Juicy Peach Kernel Nectar on my ends.

I've been using my leave-in spritz of EVOO/Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in/Water, followed my Boutique de Fluerzty Hair Butter, Oyin Burnt Sugar pomade...twist or braid and then sealing the ends with the Oyin for my braid outs. I'm loving the results.
