How I make my twist outs last - My twisting method 
So I thought I would share the method I used able to make my twist outs last for about 4-6 days. I am usually very meticulous when it comes to hair style, so a twist out is no different. This was an experiment, but it works for me. Hopefully, it’ll work for you too!
The Twisting Technique
 I have found that the more tighter the twist is, the better the definition, therefore resulting in longer-lasting twist outs. To do this, I gently tug down on the strands while carefully smoothing my fingers down the hair strands as I twist—I do this from root to tip. Doing this not only helps to “flatten” the roots to prevent puffiness when hair is in two strand twists, but it also helps to elongate my hair, and it provides way more definition and eliminates frizz. Though this method can be time-consuming, it is definitely worth it in the end, and you’ll be pleased with the results because it last for days. I make around 12-14 twists, which are pictured here.
Other Helpful Tips
When I remove my twists the next day, I use a light moisturiser to gently separate the twists by the roots, careful not to disturb the definition. I use Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine. It is non-greasy, moisturising, and prevents frizz!
I also use heavy butters that provide hold. I really like the Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter. You don’t need to use a lot of it either. It’s pricey (even for me), but it’s so worth it.
I also like to seal my ends with my DIY shea butter. Not only does this keep my twists from unraveling, but my ends feel super moisturised & defined like the rest of my hair. 
Also, you can read my post here on how I preserve my twist out at night. It’s also the same for how I refresh it in the morning. It’s a simple routine, but pretty effective! 
Let me know if you decided to try the twisting method, and if it worked out! :-)

Lunch. Baked red potatoes w/heirloom tomatoes and guac 🍅. I tossed the potatoes in smoked paprika, granulated garlic, a mix of savory herbs, and maple syrup! Baked at 400 degrees for about 40 min. 😊
