You want to twist with pressure
Use pomades, butters, or oils if you hair is medium or high coarse.
Use holding gels/waxes or holding sprays if you hair is mixed or soft.
Recommend RedOne Gel wax
Find your curl pattern, clockwise, counterclockwise or maybe both!
Stay away from water. If your hair is too wet, the comb will NOT be able to grab your hair.
Hair mousse, creams, and leave in conditioners will soften the hair and application of these products are recommended after your hair is twisted. Not before.
Every hair texture is different and has its own unique process.
