Achieving the best Twist Out starts with hair that’s freshly cleansed, intensely conditioned, and moisturized. Although my regimen varies, I generally shampoo my hair every two weeks and co-wash once or twice a week. Currently, I’m using Godiva shampoo bar by LUSH, Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa conditioner, Giovanni’s Direct Leave-In or Cantu Shea Butter leave-in (both used as moisturizers), coconut oil, and castor oil.
Here are a few steps to achieving an awesome twist out.

Step 2: Shampoo
Without unraveling the twists rinse hair well and shampoo once (unless more is needed), mainly concentrating on the scalp. Blot hair with a t-shirt or microfiber towel, then apply conditioner. Gently squeeze it into each twist, cover, and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes. Preferably, in the shower, individually unravel twists and detangle under running water with a wide toothed comb. Follow up with a denman brush or tangle teezer for smoother results, and re-twist each section before moving on to the next one. Make sure hair is rinsed thoroughly.
