Imagine this: You just saw the hottest video on how to get the best defined twist out. You wash your hair do your natural hair regimen and begin your two strand twist. Now your simply waiting for drying time. Low and behold when your twists get dry you find your roots starting to poof up. Have you been in a situation like this? This happens a lot among naturals and can get irritating to say the least. Here are 3 ways to prevent your roots poofing up so your twist and twist outs can be on fleek.
Depending on the product can make a tremendous difference from poofy to flat roots. A crème mixed with a gel can help with having your hair remain flat on the top. Also making sure your two strand twists are as taut as you can get it to resist your roots from swelling up. My favorites are Shea Moisture Crème and Shea Moisture Gel soufflé or Entwine Couture butter creme and jelle styler.
Clips/ Bobby Pins
I use to think there would not use of my clips when I got rid of locs but they help so much with helping your roots stay flat. Twist your hair as usual then make sure you use one hand to keep your hair flat while you hold your hair place the clip or bobby pin so your roots remain flat. Once your hair completely dries take your clips/bobby pins out and walah flat roots to match that perfect twist out.
Extra tip: Place the clips at the twisted ends for extra elongation
Flat twist help with being able to have your ends not poof up since it will be within the twists. I’ll be honest this is probably the one style that I’m still practicing to perfect. Have the flat twist out already in the style you want. For example, if you wear a deep side part make sure to have your flat twists parted and sectioned of so as soon as you take your flat twist out you already can take out, fluff and go.
