Now that I'm wearing twist-outs (or t-n-c's) as opposed to wash-n-gos, I've realized that moisturizing my dry 2nd and 3rd day hair leads to mega frizz and a severe reduction in definition.
I like wearing my hair out as opposed to up in that bun, and I feel like a low mani style like a twist-n-curl is a great alternative. I retained a couple of inches while wearing protective styles, and I'm hoping the retention will continue even though my hair will be out. I DT before I style...everytime, and I use 3 moisturizers on day 1 (WDT+Deva+AOHC). I'm hoping that the infusion of moisture in the beginning will prevent me from having to moisturize the ends on the days in between, but I'm not so sure.
I feel like I should be moisturizing, but I don't know how to do it w/out causing frizz. Any thoughts?
I moisturize my ends about every other day when I'd wear braidouts and twistouts. Just dab the ends with an oil/moisturizer mix. No need to work it through too much and mess up the style. I just concentrate more towards the ends.
I'm still tryna figure out what is and how to do the twist n curl. Do you two strand twist or two strand cornrow then put the rollers on the bottom? cause I don't wanna confuse it with the twist n curl product for straight hair that I saw on youtube.
I find the best way for me to maintain and re-moisturize a twist or braidout out for a week is to retwist or rebraid every other night. When I do this I usually do it in larger sections than the original twists or braids. I just spray each section with plain ole water and add a lil Knot Today and seal with coconut oil. Now if it's humid and my hair has more frizz factor I will add a lil bit of KCCC to that mixture. This method works very well for me. Keeps hair moisturized and my curls defined.
ETA: When taking the twist/braids down I always glaze my finger tips with either coconut oil or MJ baby butter cream and spritz w/water. This adds shine and more moisture while I'm finger styling the hair.
