3 Reasons Why Your Twist Outs Are Failing

twist-outTwist outs are arguably almost every natural’s favorite go-to style. The ease and simplicity of the style accompanied by the fact that it typically doesn’t take long to complete are all very rewarding.

However, often many struggle with waking up that next morning and finding the precious two strand twists you installed the night before just did not come out to perfection as originally anticipated.

The failed twist out then leads to some completely giving up on the style altogether without facing why the style is not working for whatever reason.

Though all twist outs are not created equal, because some will come out to be less than perfect, each and every set you install should not be a fail. There are most likely other contributing factors causing this negative outcome.

Are you struggling with crappy twist out results? Here are three common reasons your twist outs could be failing:

1. They are not completely dry during take down.

Almost everyone should know, but in case you don’t, the major key to a successful twist out is to ensure that your hair completely dry. If you take out your twists prior to this and your strands are still pretty damp you will notice that your hair exhibits more frizz and less definition. Not to mention, the style will most likely not last throughout the length of the week either. Sad sad day.


Tips to overcome waking up with wet hair include letting your hair air dry a bit prior to installing your twists, start wash day earlier so that your hair has the full day and night to dry, or use a diffuser prior to take down to make sure everything is all nice and dry.

Another option is if you wake up and the twists are still wet to touch leave them installed and instead opt to rock your twists for the day or throw on a head wrap.

I understand that every natural’s hair is different so you have to find a method that works for you to ensure that they are dry to completion. No more wet twists!
