How To: 3 Strand Twist Out on Natural Hair

Hey Sistas! In this tutorial, I show you how to achieve a 3 strand twist out. This was my first time trying the style and I was extremely please with the results. If you’re looking for a new cute natural hairstyle, then you should definitely give this one a try. It seems a little difficult, but it’s really easy once you get the hang of it. Lets get started!

Products Needed:

  • Spray Bottle
  • Water
  • Styling product of your choice
  • Satin Bonnet
  • Coconut Oil or Jojoba Oil

The Process:

Step 1: Start with freshly washed hair that has been slightly air-dried
Step 2: Section your hair in the way you want your style to lay
Step 3: Start with the first section and spray it with a little water
Step 4: Add your styling product to the section
Step 5: Start the twist with a three strand braid at the root of the hair to stabilize the twist – you only need to braid 4-5 times down the section
Step 6: Take the strand furthest to the left and wrap it over the other two strands as tightly as possible in a circular twisting, not a braiding motion
Step 7: Keep repeating step 6, but be sure to smooth the hair avoid frizz as you continue down the twist
Step 8: Once you get to the bottom and you can’t three strand twist anymore, add the shortest piece of hair to a section and two strand twist
Step 9: Twirl the ends of the twist
Step 10: Sleep with a satin bonnet
Step 11: Apply the oil of your choice to your hands and gently unravel the twists the next morning, or whenever you’re ready to rock your twist out
Step 12: Separate the hair where it naturally separates and fluff

    • Have you tried different products? For me, the curl pattern depends on the amount of moisture my hair retains.
