Dominican products don't just work for straight hair styles. Using rich, Dominican conditioners and sealants, you can get the shiniest, bounciest twistouts around. Not only do they add the rich moisture your hair needs, particularly in the colder months, but best of all, you avoid the stiffness that can often result from standard gels and mousses.
Dominican conditioners and stylers can give glossy, controlled results when you want to set your hair with twists. Since movement and shine and soft, touchable hair are a sine qua non of Dominican haircare, this kind of performance is built in to Dominican products. All these benefits, usually associated with Dominican Blowouts, are present in a natural style, too. Plus, swapping build-up prone, hard-hold products for a protective moisturizer means your hair gets 100% care as well as 100% style!
Start with a clean slate: Apply shampoo to your scalp, massage into a lather, then work the foam gently down your tresses. Rinse well. Then, double up your conditioners for gloss and control. Apply your favourite Dominican conditioner and fingercomb through your hair, so strands are smoothed and replenished. If wet detangling works well with your hair, this is a good time to do it. Follow up with your favourite Dominican Treatment for 5-15 minutes, remembering to rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Why double-condition before a twistout? Making sure your hair is well-conditioned lays the foundation for successful twistouts. Hair that is well-moisturized is more flexible and more compliant: just what you need for creating beautiful waves and spirals. On this soft, flexible foundation, the next step is a product which adds hold without dullness or stiffness, infusing your hair with moisture instead. The moisture minus stiffness factor is a good reason to use leave ins rather than fixatives to set your twistout. To make sure you're getting all the hold you need, the leave in needs to have a slightly viscous texture that smooths your strands together, to ensure it provides a natural looking hold as well as moisture.
Capilo La Aplanadora Leave In has a rich, almost syrupy consistency that both defines and adds gentle hold, so it makes a great twistout choice. For ultra-glossy sealing effects, top it off with the ultra-concentrated atrActiva Shine Drop Leave-In Serum sparingly; a little goes a long way.
