wet hair- twist and loc gel
dry hair- use a hair butter or shea butter mixed with oils
for defined look do more twist/braids like 12- 16
at night to the pineapple method to keep the style longer
accessories: headbands, clips/clips with teeth, decorative bobby pins, beanies
for best twist/braid out: stay close the scalp when starting, keep it tight while styling, curl the ends with fingers

Make sure your twists/braids are even/the same size. Think of how you want your hair to look and braid/twist accordingly. The direction is very important. You don't necessarily want to twist/braid the front, the sides and the back in the same direction.
My hair gets better curl definition when I do flat twists as opposed to regular, loose twists. Organic root stimulator Lock&Twist gel is your friend. It will make the curls pop more and the texture is non sticky and lovely. It won't come out as nice if you use nothing.
 You might want to use rollers/flexirods on the ends of your hair so that they don't look messy.
When you untwist/unbraid your hair, dip your fingers in either coconut oil, castor oil or olive oil to avoid frizz while separating your strands. When you separate your strands, don't force it. If you're in the right spot, it will separate easily and naturally.
 
 
I re-twist every night but it's not necessary. Lots of women can keep a twist out looking fresh for several days. If you don't retwist every night, make sure to pineapple your hair (use scrunchies on at least 4 sections of your hair) and cover it with a silk/satin scarf. If you don't have a scarf, at the very least use a satin pillowcase.

If you do a wash n go, stretch it by banding, then do a twist out when it dries, you will LOVE it.

It's just one or several high ponytails. Nothing fancy to it. I usually section my hair in 4 with my fingers and use a scrunchie. it ends up looking like 4 high puffs or pineapples (you know, how they do little kids' hair???)
 
Anyway. Here's a YouTube video. She only does one high ponytail and she uses one of those Goody ouchless bands. It's up to you to figure out what works best. Hair length is obviously factor.
If you moisturize, be careful not to use too much, it might mess up the curl pattern.
 
Most methods that ladies will reference on BHM, you can look up on YouTube. Somebody usually has a video floating out there

This is how I do my flat twist. I do it on dry hair and apply leave in which is my tresemme naturals condition which is silicone free, then apply whatever twisting creme I want to use and a little bit of oil or coconut oil or even shea butter to seal. But my twist outs work better on my hair while dry and stretched. I like the definition better when doing a flat twist then a twist out. also, It's this Shea moisture gel souffle that really has got my hair defined with a twist out but It's heavy. Cantu Shea twist and lock gel is good for me and their coconut curling creme.... no flake or residue!
