Twist-outs can be very tricky! Sometimes they turn out great, and sometimes (when you need them to look awesome) they just fall flat. Ugggghhhh…..I know, that can be frustrating! But all yah gotta do in that situation is to slick it back into a bun or a puff. The secret to a great foolproof twist out lies in 1. the products that you use, 2. making sure that your hair is completely dry before removing your twists, and 3. proper detangling techniques. In my last post I shared 13 tips that can help you to achieve the best twist out of your life, and I promised then to share some products that will help to create a great twist out. In this post I’m going to share with you 5 natural hair products that you can use to ‘slay your mane’.
5 Natural Hair Products to Create Your Best Twist Out
- Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
The curl enhancing smoothie is a staple in many a regimen, and many women with afro-textured hair claimed great results with this product. There are also women who have reported that it does not work for their hair, but as with any product it may work for some and not for others. This product contains protein, so I would recommend that women with low-porous or protein sensitive hair proceed with caution when attempting to use it. The results vary from person to person, so trial and error is your best bet when trying to figure out what works best for your hair.
2. Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter
This is a very moisturizing and nourishing twisting butter that’s perfect for your curls. There are many great ingredients inside this product such as honey, sweet almond milk, almond oil, etc that adds moisture, slip, and promote length retention (paired with other healthy hair techniques). This product is on the pricier side of the spectrum, but if you are ‘splurging’ on new products then this should be a must try.
3. As I Am Twist Defining Cream
This product is very popular among the natural hair community members because it gives the hair shine, moisture, and most of all it’s affordable. I’ve read reviews about this product and women claimed that this is a staple because it made their hair very smooth, frizz-free, and manageable. If you are looking for something to tame those curls then this could be a great option for you. It’s available at Walgreens, Walmart, Sally’s, Amazon, everywhere (You name it!!!).
4. Eco-Styler Gel
This right here is a holy grail for many women when it comes to styling. It provides excellent hold if you are looking for a style that lasts a long time, and it also provides some degree of softness and pliability. I’ve never used this gel in my personal hair routine, but I’ve seen videos of women who reported that they have not experience crunchy hair or flakiness. The results vary from person to person, so take the time out to experiment until you find what works for you.
5. DIY Shea Butter Mix
Word of advice…..Don’t sleep on your DIY Shea butter mix!!! Shea butter is an excellent conditioner and sealant, but it also works well in creating the perfect twist out. I use it every time I do my twist outs and it makes my curls so soft and manageable. Just apply a small amount to your hair after applying your moisturizer to seal in moisture and shine.
Those are my 5 natural hair products that you can use to create better twist outs. There are many products out there, so go out and find what works for you.
