Twists are a very versatile style because there really is no right or wrong way to do them! Experiment, have fun and let your personality shine through! There are endless different styles to create and enjoy! Twists are also a great style to wear all your favorite accessories with, bobbles, clips and bows... the possibilities are endless! As well as being easy to create, twist styles

can stay in for several days which means less stress on those tresses! They can be easily refreshed and can also be transformed into a twist out style!

A twistout style is created by unravelling the twists from the ends up to the roots creating a defined curl without frizz. A twistout style is best achieved by allowing the twists to completely dry before unravelling, and it's also good to apply some oil to your hands before unravelling to help prevent frizz and achieve the perfect twistout!

Twist styles are great for children of all ages. They are very simple to do and also do not require a lot of time to complete! Which is great for moms on the go!

"Your Curly Kids are sure to love experimenting with twists, and I am sure you will enjoy all of the benefits of this amazing protective style!"
