1 Grab a small section of hair from the section of hair you are working on and split it into two pieces. Begin by twisting your hair normally (it is best to twist away from the face (twist back) so that when your hair is taken down it does not “fall” in your face). As you work your way down the section of hair, you will pick up small pieces of hair every time you twist to add to the twist (similar to a french braid).

1 Using an oil of your choosing, (coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, argon oil), place a small amount of oil in the palm of your hand. Smooth over all of your twists. Doing this will seal the moisture into your twists. Different oils have different benefits: Coconut Oil: Coconut oil can penetrate the hair shaft leaving your hair moisturized all week. Olive Oil: Olive oil helps to seal the moisture into your hair. Castor Oil: Castor oil helps to seal the moisture into your hair while also helping to grow thicker hair. Argon Oil: Argon oil helps to strengthen the hair shafts. 2 Expect shrinkage. To prevent some shrinkage, stretch each twist across your head. Take the front twist and stretch it to the opposite side of your head. Secure with a bobby pin. Complete the above steps until all of your twists are stretched across your head. 3 Let your hair dry overnight. 4 Before going to bed, wrap your hair with a satin scarf. Doing this will secure the moisture in your hair. Part 5 Taking Down the Twists
