How I Maintain My Twists...In A Nutshell

1:37 AM

I've mentioned my twists maintenance a couple times before but I still get lots of comments and messages asking how I do it. So I figured I'd explain with pictures this time lol! Note...These steps are usually done at night, so the pics are of my hair the next morning after all these steps were taken the night before.

Step #1: I begin my night prep by oiling my scalp using Bee Mine's Hair Growth Serum. I've never seen a significant amount of growth when using this product, but my scalp loves the ingredients and it really soaks in, making my roots soft and shiny...not oily. I do this step every other day and when I'm not being too lazy, I give it a little massage. 
Step #2: Next I divide my hair in two sections and spray the ends, until damp, with water or Bee Mine Moisturizing Spritz. I then gather the twists in to a low ponytail and cover the loose wet ends with a plastic sandwich bag and secure it with another ponytail holder. Doing this will keep your ends moist throughout the night....like a mini deep conditioning for your ends. You can even do this step in the day time when your at school or work, just cover your hair with a pretty and no one will ever know lol! Then I smooth a little Avocado Shea Butter to the edges and crown to smooth down fuzzies and cover with a satin scarf.
Step #3: Well there really isn't a "step 3", just remove the scarf, ponytail holders plastic bag and go! In the morning I hardly ever need to add anything else, the twists are soft, moisturized and have a great sheen. The low pony does leave behind a slight bump, but it doesn't bother me too much because I usually where them up and off the shoulders.

In the end, your ends should feel smooth and well moisturized. And the length of your hair should be soft with a nice sheen, without build up on your scalp. Simple and easy! If I ever need to retwist, I use SM's Shea Butter Masque, the same thing I use to twist with. If there's anything that your still unsure about regarding these twists please let me know in the comments below!

  6. I surely wish my ends would curl as your do...Nope! Not at all!! I've concluded that my hair is wavy and s shaped...not coily!! This has been my main downfall when going for a mini-twist look...not to mention it makes me look kiddie!

    However, this week I am rockin medium twist, 36 exactly and they fair well! I need to go look at these bee mine products that you've mentioned...**writes down coupon code**

  7. @LoveNWright If your ends have a hard time coiling, first try finger coiling them by tightly twirling them around your finger. Or you can set your ends on very skinny rods for the coiled look. Let me know how it goes :)
