How to moisturize a twist-out?

Hola Chicas

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?
The Blog:

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.

Do you slick the moisturizer on each little curl or grab chunks?
The Blog:

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.

here's the vid

Or is it this????

Ditto.You can apply product by gently scrunching it on the hair instead of smoothing it on the hair which may lead to frizz.HTH

Hey Ladies!

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.
