7 Steps to Washing Twists

Hey Curlies,

Today I am going to wash my kinky twist, which will be coming out soon! Although I use Tea Tree Oil on my scalp, I am getting the itchies and some buildup. Here are 7 my simple steps to washing twists.

7 Steps to Washing Twists

  1. Take your favorite shampoo, I am using Organix Moroccan Oil, and find a cup or small bowl.
  2. Fill the small container up with half shampoo and half water, then mix. (Diluting the shampoo makes it easier to wash)
  3. Rinse off twist using water (This could be in the shower or sink)
  4. Pour the diluted shampoo on to your head or if it is a bit thicker, take some in your hand and rub it solely on your scalp. ( focusing on the scalp is important because it is where all the buildup is)
  5. Wash the scalp and slowly move to the actual twist. (Don't rub them too much, this could cause the hair to unravel)
  6. Rinse and repeat the same steps using your favorite conditioner, I am using Herbal Essence Hello Hydration.
  7. Finally, dry using a soft towel (blot dry) or using an old t shirt.
