3. Twist It Out!
Twist-outs are great if you want to stretch your natural hair and create more texture. They can be done on hair of almost any length, I even did them on my TWA.
Twist-outs can be done on wet or dry hair but if you want the best definition, your hair will need to be damp or wet to set the curls. Moisturizers, water, setting lotion, and leave-in conditioners are all good products to apply to your hand beforehand.
Here are some tips to get you started:
- You can use perm rods* on the ends of your hair to create a twist and curl.
- If you’re having trouble gripping the hair, try decreasing the size of your twisted sections.
- Flat-twist your hair downward to get a neater twist-out!
As you can see, twist outs can be achieved on all textures and lengths:
