Reviving a Twistout on its last leg

I had to take my twists out due to the hair tangling and matting together . I like to wet my hair frequently which is why I need to stick to box braids and not twists but that's another story. If you want to revive a twist out whether or not its on its last leg or you just want a little oomph to it , add your favorite leave in conditioner. Not a lot , just enough to coat the hair, then wet your hair a little so that the leave in conditioner allows your styling aid to slide better. If you don't feel the need to add the leave in conditioner you can go straight to wetting your twist out and applying your styling aid.. You don't want your hair to be soaking and you don't want it to be too dry either so try to find that happy medium. The styling aid plus water gives the twist out a little more definition and a slightly different look then starting out.  I can usually get another 2-3  days out of my style.

 I used Elucence MBC as my light leave in and Darcys Botanicals Natural Coils Curling Jelly
