Twisting my hair is one of my favourite ways to reduce shrinkage. To do this, split your hair into 4 sections, spritz with water until lightly damp and apply your That Good Hair Custom leave-in conditioner
and hair oil
and then finger detangle. My formula is infused with Aloe Vera Juice, Coconut Oil and Allantoin for their lightweight conditioning properties and definition. Then twist each section gently pulling the hair so that you stretch your hair out to its full length. The twists stop it from jumping all the way back up and once the twists are dry, I untwist them resulting in beautifully defined stretched curls. I split the curls into individual strands so they aren't stuck together anymore. The reason I love this method is that it's a really simple protective style that doesn't really require any skill. It is simply twisting two strands of hair together but it has such a beautiful result. While my hair doesn't come down to my waist it is still a lot longer than if I just left it to dry out and shrink up. This style can alternatively be done with plaits instead of twists, I alternate between the two but I prefer the way my curls look after twists rather than plaits.
