- Starting with moisturized and detangled hair will make it more manageable and more likely to produce desirable results. Dry, rough hair will achieve a not so finished look.
- Using moisturizing products that have a light hold and evenly distributing it through your hair is key. Butter and pomades are best for this, as they moisturize and smooth the hair preventing frizz while giving your hair some added hold.
- Section your hair according to how you plan to style it. This is so important, as parting can make or break your final look. Map out how you want the results to be then knot and part accordingly. Honeycomb-like parts are easier to hide than straight or triangular ones.
- Don’t over twist. This will not produce better results, and it is bad for your hair. It can put too much stress on your strands, making them potentially fall out. The key is keeping the twist smooth and uniform.
- Unscrew the knots with care. If this is not done properly, you will end up with a frizzy mess.
- Maintain your look at night by either re-twisting or pulling hair into the pineapple method.
Tightly curled. If you don’t mind this youthful look, it’s a great way to rock your freshly unraveled knots. The curls will begin to drop naturally on their own throughout the day!
