If you’re just getting started on your natural hair journey, lots of questions will arise. From what your natural hair type may be, to what products to use, to how to retain length and keep your natural tresses properly moisturized.
Luckily, there are a few helpful tips to ensure your next twist out is successful. Sally Beauty offers textured and curly hair care products – which makes maintaining healthy natural hair is a breeze!
Consider these helpful tips while styling your hair.
Use A Cleansing Shampoo
Make sure you’re using a shampoo that specializes in cleansing. There are multiple shampoos on the market, but you want to make sure you choose one that cleanses your scalp.
Stripping your scalp while also maintaining moisture is the goal, because the products you use in the next steps will add moisture back in. Your scalp is notorious for collecting dandruff and excess oils, so don’t be afraid to start from a fresh, clean scalp when attempting a twist out.
Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen and Restore shampoo is a great option for cleansing and nourishing the scalp.
Because your scalp is the actual root of your hair, you want to make sure it’s getting a great start for a successful style. Proper scalp care will determine how hydrated and bouncy your curls turn out at the end of the styling process. So be sure to not skip this step!
Add Moisture To Your Scalp
Scalp strengthening oils like Mielle’s Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil is great for daily use and not only adds moisture, but a nice shine to your overall twist out.
Improper care of your scalp can cause issues over time, which can ultimately affect how your styles turn out.
Seal in moisture daily with lightweight oils like Mielle’s. Sally Beauty has a plethora of options geared towards textured hair to ensure you choose the right one.
Moisturize Your Hair Strands
Now that we have the scalp out of the way, it’s important to add moisture to your hair strands, with a focus on your ends.
Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie is available at Sally Beauty and provides shine, defines curls and reduces breakage that leaves hair soft and silky.
Hair smoothies are versatile and can be used as a conditioner after a wash and as a moisturizer after it’s been blown out.
Sally Beauty also features Texture ID Styling Crème that includes Shea butter, cocoa butter, honey and aloe Vera to name a few. Texture ID styling crème provides a medium hold for coils that need extra conditioning and moisture.
With clean scalp and moisturized strands, you can ensure your twist outs come out successful.
Whether you’re opting for flat twists, individual twists, or a rod set – be sure that your hair is completely dry before separating.
