Summertime Hair Styling for Naturals & Transitioners | The Twist & Curl

I’ve received a few questions about summertime styling options from both naturals & transitioners alike. My hands-down favorite go to style while I was transitioning was the twist & curl. This style gave me the “natural look” while also allowing me to blend the two vastly different textures I was working with.  Instead of doing a video myself on this style & its variations, I though that I would just share with you some of the videos that personally helped me along the way.

Starting with freshly cleaned & conditioned hair, the twist & curl method consists of starting the two strand twist style with the styling products of your choice.  My favorite products for this style are the Cantu Shea Butter leave in on top of the Cantu Shea Butter Hair & Scalp oil. Using a combination of these two products kept me from seeing white flakes from the Cantu leave in.  After twisting small to medium sections of hair, roll the ends of the hair with perm rods & allow hair to completely dry.  I recommend a cool hooded dryer if you don’t have the entire weekend to let your hair air dry.
