Hey Sistas! I decided to make a video giving you my top 14 tips that will help you achieve perfect, defined twist outs every single time. I hope this helps!
Tips For a Defined Twist Out:
- Make sure your hair is damp, not soaking wet. Your hair is more fragile and prone to breakage when it’s soaking wet. After you wash your hair, add in your leave-in conditioner and oil and let it air dry a bit before you twist your hair
- Sectioning your hair is extremely important. I try to make sure each section will give me about 3-4 twists. This will also make detangling your hair much easier
- Make sure you have a great detangling product
- Finger detangle your hair after you add in your detangling product
- After you finger detangle your hair, use your detangling brush to continue the detangling process. It should be much easier since you finger detangled first. Start at the ends and work your way up to the roots
- Now separate the larger sections of hair into smaller sections of twists. Size does matter and the smaller your twists are the more defined your twist out will be
- Distribute the twisting product of your choice evenly throughout the section you’re about to twist
- Start your twist at the roots.The great thing is that you detangled your hair from the ends to the roots, so this step should be really easy. It also helps when you need to pick out your hair at the roots
- Smooth your hair and slightly finger detangle your hair as you twist it down to the ends. This helps to work the product into the hair and ensures you don’t have any tangles or knots
- When you get to the ends, leave a little bit of the hair untwisted, add a little more product and proceed to coil the ends. This gives your ends a nice, neat look when you take your twists down
- Make sure your hair is completely dry before you start taking down your twists. I usually wait until the next day since it typically takes a long time for my hair dry
- Split your hair into two big sections and and loosely secure them with a hair band. Doing this ensures that you don’t have any random twists left in your hair at the end of the take-down process
- Pull each twist from the section and gently unravel them starting at the end and working your way up to the roots
- To separate and add volume to my hair, I usually just run my fingers down a section that has been untwisted and pull it apart where it naturally wants to separate. If a section doesn’t want to separate, don’t force it as this could create unwanted frizz
Once your twists have been separated, it’s up to you to decide what style you want to do with your hair, but I love rocking a High Puff, or simply picking out the roots for a really cute and defined twist out.
