What do you use for twist/braid outs
Im trying to do flat twist outs and ive made some progress but my ends are always frizzy. I used shea butter. Can i get some recs for products that will make my hair frizz when im separating my hair or any links where people have talked about this before. Thanks

I just saw a YT vid using Dark and Lovely Coil Moisturizing Souffle. They 2strands turned out very nice.

I use flax seed gel. It is important to
1. Twirl the end of the twist
2. You may need a trim. When I need a trim my ends get tangled up when I'm trying to untwist my hair.
3. Make sure your hair is moisturized by your products. Dry hair can caused frizzy ends.
4. Seal your ends. They're the oldest part of your hair and tend to be frizzier did give them a little extra care.

adding a bit of gel to the ends may help. also make sure you have applied oil to your hands prior to the take down process.

I like braid-outs and I style them with 10 braids. For my braid-outs, I use:
- Alba Botanica Leave-In Conditioner
- Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk OR Curl Enhancing Smoothie
- Castor Oil (to seal my ends)
I'm currently experimenting with layering DIY flax seed gel over my leave-in and moisturizer. So for it's working well.

I use shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie, castor oil or grape seed oil to seal and then eco styler gel. I twist on wet or damp hair, I just make sure that my hair is wet enough to coil at the ends after I apply my products. I put oil on my hands before I separate.

A lot depends on what you like your hair to feel like. Some people don't mind crunch but I do so I go for a softer hold and use conditioner and oil with butter on my ends. unless it's summer. Then I like gel for humidity control and usually fsg.
