How Do I Soften Kinky Twist?

Q: I recently got kinky twist and the hair is so course that it irritates my neck. Is there a way to soften the hair so that it is not so irritating?


A: Girl, I know exactly what you're talking about and there is something you can do.

First boil some water and get a heat safe container and put a little bit of your regular old hair conditioner in the bottom. Pour the hot water over it so that it's a few inches deep.

Carefully lean your head over and soak the twists in the hot water and conditioner combination for a few moments.

Have a towel handy and take your hair out and squeeze the excess water out and let your hair cool before you let it touch your skin.

Your twists will have softened up and a bonus is that any little hairs that were sticking out will be controlled and lie down.

Synthetic Hair For Kinky Twists?

Can this be done on synthetic hair or only human hair?

Camille's Comments:

Kinky twists can be done with human or synthetic hair as long as it has a natural afro type texture to it.
