The twist out is very common among African American natural hair styles ladies, it’s a favorite among many naturals for many reasons, which we will discuss throughout this post. What’s great about the twist out is the fact that one can gather just a few easy methods to achieve voluminous, defined, and glorious spirals.
Start out be cleaning and condition you hair so that it can absorb products for setting and styling. If your hair is not washed there can be product buildups, which result in your hair not being able to grasp additional products. If there is too much products that will result in scalp flaking and longer drying time. So it’s important that you start with a clean head of hair.
If you’re looking for well-defined twists, the smaller the twists the better because you will have more definition. But, it is equally as important to have de-tangle you hair before you start twisting. Divide the hair into section, this will allow the de-tangling process to be smoother. De-tangling help determine how your hairstyles come out. So it is very important that you get all the tangles out while your hair is wet by combing it gently.
Now on to the twisting part. When you begin to twist make sure you have a tight hold to your roots while making your way down. Simply twist with the strands tightly between your fingers to help stretch the hair pattern, if that’s what you’re going for, and it helps the twist to last longer. If you want a more defined twist out you need to work with smaller sections. You need to divide the parts evenly.
Once you’re done twisting allow the hair time to dry or sit under a heated dryer. Let it dry completely before taking the hair out in order to minimize frizz. Once it dries now it’s time to unravel, add some oil to your hands and begin to separate and fluff up your hair.
Feel free to add moisture like oil, and spray with water if you’re doing it on dry hair. If you happen to have fine hair type, you might want to use less product. And, if you happen to have coarse hair type, then use as much products as you can. There are many reasons to love twist outs even as other natural hairstyles like mushroom hairstyle, braid out, flat twist, and bantu knot out styles are available.
