Have you ever said, “I don’t do Twist Outs – they never come out right.” Nor do you do Braid Outs, or Flat Twist Outs, or any kind of “Outs”, because no matter what you do, they just don’t look as amazing as what you pictured in your head.
Listen; we have all been there, and perfecting a style isn’t easy – it takes a lot of practice and time, but some of us do not have the patience to do something 50 eleven times just to get it right. Give us a fool proof method that works, it’s that simple!
There is a way to perfect every style that you do, apart from technique, which we can’t deny will play an important role as well. Let’s assume that you do know how to do a basic braid or plait and you can twist a bit too. Here are 7 fool proof ways to ensure your hair style looks fab every time:
Start with clean hair
You don’t have to start with clean hair, but if you want to guarantee perfection, then you must cleanse your hair of all impurities. Some naturals will tell you that they get the best styles from dirty hair, but what they don’t mention is that they know exactly at what point to do what style, because they know their hair.
Dirt and grime can make things unpredictable if you are not as in tune with your hair as a seasoned veteran is. So get the shampoo, cleanse, and give yourself a blank canvas, and a real shot at it.
Condition or deep condition
Healthy hair means sexy hair in the end, so do what you need to do to ensure that your hair has maximum moisture and strength if you add protein. This allows your hair to shine naturally depending on what products you use and the strength of your strands.
Strong strands gives you that natural luster and shine that we admire so much, so what you have to figure out is how to get it for you. Maybe add a little honey* to your deep conditioner*, or a little coconut oil* for sheen.
Pick the right product combinations
Do not take the moisture before oil recommendation for granted, you must hydrate your strands so that the style can last. Pick products that have water in them to moisturize, and then use your oil to seal leaving the styler for last
Stylers are pretty cool because that’s what gives you your hold and will enhance your hair’s natural texture. Use your styler as the finishing touch.
