Starting on freshly washed and deep conditioned hair, I separated my hair from ear to ear. So the back of my head was sectioned off from the front. Also, if you plan on having a part be sure to separate it off as its own section as well to save time and make your job a bit easier.
Then at the back of my head I took horizontal subsections from the bottom working my way up. Of course the subsection was large so I split it into 3 or 4 more vertical subsections which would become the twists.
I sprayed each small subsection with just a few mists of water (I find spraying too much water makes my twists weighed down) and applied a finger tip amount of Inahsi Naturals Aloe Hibiscus Leave In Conditioner and Inahsi Naturals Island Breeze Hair & Body Whipped Butter to seal the moisture in. I then began to twist.
I find that twisting in small sections gives you a TON of definition which will also result in your style lasting longer. I twist until there’s about 1-1 1/2 inches of hair left and then I coil it around my finger a few times to “lock” the twist. Most people coil the very ends of their twists but I like to have really nice ringlets so I coil a bigger part of it.
My hair takes forever to dry, especially with twists. So after 2 full days they were dry but I wore the twists for about a week just because I liked them a lot. Before I began unraveling I applied grape seed oil for additional shine and to prevent frizz. After I unraveled each twist I separated them 2 or 3 times depending on how many times that individual twist would naturally separate. This allows for more volume and definition. Then when I’m finished I pick my roots out for even more volume. In the after picture that was how my hair looked after I tied it up on the 3rd day of wearing the twists out.
