Tish says to keep this barrel twist updo in “salon fresh” condition, you should simply wrap your hair at night with a silk or satin bonnet to protect your locks from contact with cotton. Cotton has a tendency to remove moisture from the hair. Cotton can leave residue on your locks also. In the mornings, Tish suggests using some type of light oil to keep your locks and scalp moisturized.
