Mini-twists have gained a lot of popularity this summer on social media platforms. Their appeal comes from the amount of diversity this style allows. The style is hands-off and can last for a few weeks at a time. This means less manipulation and tension on the hair and scalp. However, it’s important to remember to cleanse and detangle your hair regularly, even with a style like mini-twists. If you don’t, you might loc your hair on accident!

With mini-twists, you have the ability to wear your hair in different ways, such as space buns, half-up half-down, low ponys, or loose without any tension. Mini-twists are a great way to have a less hands-on style that doesn’t require a lot of manipulation. It takes a couple of hours to install, depending on experience, hair length, and twist size.

This style goes hand-in-hand with twists, which is one of the reasons we LOVE twist-outs. Any twist style can be taken down and worn. You can boost the longevity of your hard work by wearing twists, cleansing them at the week mark, and then taking them out for another cute style. Whether it’s for a fun night out or just an average day, this style will turn heads and leave you or your child feeling confident. Twist-outs can last and stay defined when the proper takedown techniques are used and the hair is covered securely at night.

Tip: You can use an oil that has a high-quality formula while taking down your twists. Lightly coat your hands with the product then untwist your hair. About a dime-sized amount will work for your entire head. Remember, the point of this oil is to help with the takedown process, not to heavily lubricate the hair. We only recommend using oils that have been formulated for the hair, so avoid raw oils such as jojoba or castor straight from the bottle. Using too much oil can cause your hair to reject water during the cleansing process. This can cause your hair to become dry and brittle due to dehydration.
