How To: Maximum Protection Mini Twists

mini twists

Mini twists are actually pretty easy to achieve because they are similar to the process of prepping a twist out, but instead of unraveling the twists, you rock them as is!

The steps to beginning and styling the twists are easy-to-follow as well. In this post, we will be using mostly ORS Olive Oil products, but feel free to use what you have on hand.

How To Get The Look:

  • First, start off with freshly washed hair. ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo and Replenishing Conditioner are ideal because the shampoo removes all dirt and build-up while the conditioner brings your hair back to life with moisture and strength.
  • Then, detangle and allow your hair to partially dry before you begin your twists. Applying something light like the ORS Essential Argan Oil ensures that you trap in the softness and moisture, and keep your hair protected and nourished as you twist.
  • Now it’s time to start twisting! To keep your twists soft and firm, ORS Olive Oil Fix-It No Grease Creme Styler should be your go-to! It smooths out frizz, moisturizes, and hold the hair in place to give you a neat and lustrous look. Just apply a pea-sized amount to each section before twisting and you’re good to go!

The Benefits:

  • Mini twists are considered a long term protective style which means you can wear them for at least a week without having to do any touch-ups.
  • Like braids, twists styles lock in moisture, softness, and shine much longer than other styles. Intensely moisturizing before you twist will do you a world of good, and last you quite a long time.
  • Because you’re working with your natural hair, it gives you easy access to your roots and scalp for a quick cleanse. Plus, it is super easy to maintain and re-do when you need a touch-up.

Maintaining your mini twists: 

  • Do a quick mist of ORS Olive Oil Nourishing Sheen Spray to add some shine when your twists look dull and lifeless.
  • When it’s time for re-dos and touch-ups, ORS Olive Oil Smooth-N-Hold will help you achieve soft, shiny, and manageable twists with a nice hold and no flakiness; While ORS Olive Oil Edge Control smooths down the frizziest of edges.
  • When it’s time to take the twists down and you’re ready for a wash day, ORS Olive Oil Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo will give you a much-needed hair reset and cleanse.
