Hair Archives: 5 Easy Tips for the Perfect Twist Out


Twist out on dry hair. For this set I did small twists and did not separate them.

Hey naturals! You guys always ask me about my twist outs, so not only am I working on a tutorial BUT I am sharing my secrets with all of you!

There are a few factors that go into a perfect twist out. It's a science!

1. Wet or dry
If you do a twist out on wet hair you will have tons of definition, you will need to allow at least 6 or more hours to dry (I usually dry overnight), and you WILL get some shrinkage. If you do it on dry hair you can leave it in for as little as 30 mins (I have done this before), will have a lot of stretch, and less shrinkage.

2. Products
On my wet hair I usually use a leave-in to moisturize and some type of gel/curl cream then seal with oil when I'm done. It holds the curl and prevents future frizz. On my dry hair I will either re-moisturize with a little spray leave-in or a creamy leave-in, then seal with a shea butter. 
3. Size of the twists
Try to do them relatively small, but not tiny. If you want a defined twist out, you want to do your twists small enough so that you dont have to separate them (which can cause frizz and ruin your twist out). If you want a more fluffy look, you can do medium-large twists and fluff it out
4. TakedownThe way you undo your twists also counts. No matter if you are undoing a wet or dry twist set, unravel from the ends to the root, with some oil on your hands.

5. Separatio
n and manipulation
If you do small twists you will not have to separate them, BUT if you do larger twists you will. if you do have to separate them, only separate them in 2/3 pieces but be careful! Unravel from the tip to the root, and slick your hands with oil before manipulating your hair to prevent frizz.

So that's it. There are my secrets. If you end up not liking your twist out (which happens sometimes), you can simply slick your hair into a puff, wet your hands and fluff out your hair, or simply do some cute pinned styles.
