Using Clips to Reduce Puffiness at the Root of Twists

Beautifully Curled: Using Clips to Reduce Puffiness at the Root of Twists


This post is overdue but is an update to the previous post in regard to my experimentation of using clips to help reduce the usual puffiness that occurs after twisting damp hair. Z slept just fine with the clips in her hair overnight and they were all in tact the following morning.

I carefully removed each clip and was pleased to find that her roots were indeed tighter in comparison to allowing her hair to puff/shrink as it air-dried overnight. Her twists were laid in there intended positions around the fame of her face. The effect lasted a few days before her twists began showing signs of puffiness at the roots.

Overall, this technique is good in regard to creating a tighter look around the roots which helps the twists to look neater and last longer than usual. However, I do not intend on using this method every time I style twists in Z's hair. I believe this approach is more appropriate if I desire her twists to fall in a certain direction as they are setting (air-drying) especially overnight. Even so, I would most likely only clip the upper section of her hair where the roots are more visible in contrast to the back. This set of twists lasted two weeks and held up quite well.
