Why Protective Styles for Natural Hair?

Curlfriends, let's talk about the hair love that goes beyond looks – the magic of protective styles. From the timeless elegance of twist-outs to other chic options, these styles aren't just about aesthetics; they're the key to healthier, longer, and more vibrant hair.

Protective styles like twist-outs act as moisture guardians, reducing breakage and stress on your strands. Their low manipulation nature promotes natural hair growth, while also safeguarding your ends, encouraging length retention. And the best part? You get to flaunt versatility without sacrificing the health of your precious curls. So, whether you're rocking twists, braids, or other protective styles, you're not just styling; you're nurturing the growth of your beautiful natural hair. It's a win-win! 🌿✨

Washday Wonders for Curly Hair:

The foundation of any great twist out is a clean canvas. Begin your hair care routine with our Tree Naturals Shampoo & Conditioner Bars to gently cleanse your tresses without stripping away essential moisture. For a deeper clean, our Tree Naturals Detoxifying Earth Mask works wonders, detoxifying your scalp and leaving your hair ready for the perfect twist out. 

Or you can grab everything you need in our luxe Wash Day Kit! 

Tip for Fine Hair Types: Use a light hand when applying products to avoid weighing down your fine strands. Opt for our Tree Naturals Hair Milk to add moisture without the heaviness.

Tip for Thick Hair Types: Embrace the richness of our Tree Naturals Deep Conditioner to ensure every strand is thoroughly nourished. Don't shy away from applying a generous amount for that extra hydration boost.

Stretching Your Strands: Setting Options

Before diving into the twist out magic, it's crucial to stretch your natural curls. Whether you choose to embrace heat or go heat-free, we've got you covered.

Heat-Styled Stretch: If you're a fan of the blow dryer, set it to low heat and gently stretch your curls using the tension method. Be sure to apply the Tree Naturals Leave-In Conditioner to protect the hair. 

Heat-Free Options: For those who prefer avoiding heat, consider stretching with flexi-rods or rollers. Our Tree Naturals Curl Leave In Conditioner is your go-to product for achieving smooth, bouncy curls without the need for heat.

Damp and Wet Setting Options

For damp hair, generously apply Tree Naturals Leave-In Conditioner and create small, tight twists for defined curls. If your hair is wet, opt for Tree Naturals Curl Cream to strike the perfect balance of moisture and hold, resulting in a blend of definition and natural bounce.

Here's a pro tip: Adjust the size of your sections based on your desired outcome. For more volume, create larger sections and use a minimal amount of product. If maximum definition is your goal, opt for smaller sections and a touch more product.

Experimenting with these variations not only allows you to discover what works best for your unique hair but also empowers you to embrace the diversity of your natural curls. The Twist Out Chronicles is your roadmap to achieving the perfect twist out, tailored just for you.

Drying Methods for Natural Hair:

Ensuring your twists are thoroughly dry is crucial to banishing frizz. We've all been there when you spend all day twisting your hair only to rush through the drying process and unravel your hair too soon...leading to the puffy roots and ends...arggh!

Choose the method that suits your preferences and schedule:

  1. Hooded Dryer:
    • Set your hooded dryer to a low or medium heat setting.
    • Sit under the dryer until your twists are completely dry.
  2. Air Drying:
    • Allow your twists to air dry naturally.
    • For a faster drying process, sit in a well-ventilated area or use a fan.

Add Shine with our Hair Growth Oil 

Once your twists have set, unravel them gently, being mindful not to disturb the curl pattern to reduce frizz. Fluff and shape your curls to your liking. You can also fluff your roots with an afro pick for added volume. To add an extra layer of shine apply our Tree Naturals Hair Growth Oil over your finished twist out. Revel in the beauty of your defined, luscious curls!


Congratulations, Curlfriend! You've now mastered the art of the perfect protective style AKA the twist out, tailored to your unique hair type. With Tree Naturals products by your side, your natural hair journey just got a whole lot more fabulous. Not to mention the added hair growth and length retention in your future.
