If you feel that you like a more defined curl without the effort of rollers and curlers, a twist style is the perfect choice.

Once you have rinsed out your deep conditioner, add moisturising products to your hair when it’s wet along with defining hair pudding. Remember to be generous with product.

Divide the hair into small sections. With one section, roughly 2cm x 2 cm, make two pieces and make twists all the way to the end. Once you are done, go along the scalp with some scalp serum and allow hair to dry completely.

We suggest you go about your day and rock your twists as curly hair takes ages to dry. On day 2, open up your twists to reveal beautifully defined curls. Pick at your roots with an afro comb to create volume. Viola!
