How to Maintain The Simplest Curly Styles For More Than One Day

Woman with hands in her curly hairYou ever spent hours on your hair creating a style for the week for it only to get frizzy and a total mess warranting a do-over the next day?

Keeping a style intact for a couple of days is a dream and a lifesaver for many who just do not have the time to keep doing their hair every other day.  Here are some simple styles and the ways you can maintain them throughout the week.

Style one

Twist out – Before there was a twist-out there were some twists! One of the most ideal ways to maintain a twist out is to start out with a clean slate.

Ensuring that your hair is properly cleansed for your style not only helps your hair set well, but gives your products a fresh canvas to work on.  Leave your twists in for a day or two until your hair is completely dry and then untwist for a perfect twist out.

Key things to remember:

► It is best to use products with a little hold when you are doing your twists so that the definition of your curls remain intact and you reduce frizz.


► Ensure that your hair is properly moisturized and the moisture is sealed in with oil for your week long style.

► Let your hair fluff naturally, do not unravel or disturb the hair too much, as the days go by your hair will take on a life of its own.

► The night time routine is very important, gather the hair together in a high ponytail aka a “pineapple” with the lowest amount of manipulation add a pony tail holder and cover with a satin bonnet. In the morning, release, fluff and go!

Style Two

Wash and Go – A wash and go is literally washing or co washing (washing the hair solely with conditioner) styling and going about your business. Wash Go’s are rarely ever just stepping out of the shower and going to work, most of us have to add a few products to set the hair especially if you want the style to last all week. A wash and go is a special kind of style because the result is unique to the hair on your head!

I have to retwist if I am wearing a twist out. Also using the LOC method. Also wearing either a Satin scarf or bonnet at night.

Two strand micro twists. I rock them at least 8 weeks, washing every week.
