My ex mother in law took my daughter to get kinky twist. I know howbto care for my daughters natural hair ( which is long) but I'm not sure how to care for the kinky twists. I have read several articles online written by supposed professionals but I'm still unsure.

you dont have to do much of anything. Just keep moisturizing her roots. Kinky twists are a protective styling and low maintenance.

What I read, it to keep them moisturized... Some articles say with water and others say olive oil. Also none have been clear as to what to keep moisturized.. The hair or scalp? I have never had to deal with this type of style, I always had her hair done in a natural style. Lol but you know how nannas are.
Ty for your help.

Oil the scalp. Dont put oils on the twists. It will cause them to loosen up and fall out. Its really not a lot. My hair has been natural....forever. Ive had kinky twist numerous times. Im getting Senegalese twists next week in fact.

Ty. My daughter is only 10 and I had hoped we would avoid the extension styles for a while longer. Lol. I've had to argue my case so many times with her nanna over NOT processing her hair. So I gave in to letting her do the twists. Although I don't understand why she needs the extensions since her natural hair is as long as the extension.
