Ten Steps to achieving the perfect Twist-out

Start with clean, moisturised hair: Begin by washing and conditioning your hair with our Black Moisturising Natural Shampoo and Moisturising and Detangling Conditioner. Moisturised hair will hold the twist out better and result in more defined curls.

Detangle your hair: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle your hair, ensuring there are no knots or tangles. This step is crucial for achieving smooth and defined twists.

Apply a leave-in conditioner: Apply a generous amount of our Leave-in Conditioner to your hair to provide moisture and help define your curls. Make sure to distribute the product evenly from roots to ends.

Section your hair: Divide your hair into small sections using clips or hair ties. Working with smaller sections will make it easier to create neat and defined twists.

Apply a styling product: Apply our Twist and Curl Pudding to each section of hair, ensuring thorough coverage.

You are five steps away from achieving the perfect Twist-out!

Twist your hair: Take a small section of hair and divide it into two strands. Twist the strands around each other tightly from the roots to the ends. Continue twisting until you reach the end of the section, then secure the twist with a hair tie or clip. Repeat this process for each section of hair.

Allow your hair to dry: Let your hair air dry completely or use a hooded dryer or diffuser attachment on a low heat setting to speed up the drying process. It's important to ensure your hair is completely dry before unraveling the twists to prevent frizz.

Unravel the twists: Once your hair is dry, carefully unravel each twist starting from the ends and working your way up to the roots. Avoid separating the twists too much to maintain definition and minimize frizz.

Fluff and style: Gently fluff your hair with your fingers to add volume and shape to your twist out. You can also use a pick or wide-tooth comb to lift the roots and create more volume if desired.

Set with oil or serum: Finish by lightly applying a bit of our Hair Growth Oil Elixir to your hair to add shine and seal in moisture. Focus on the ends to prevent them from becoming dry and frizzy throughout the day.

Now that you have the perfect Twist-out...

Remember, practice makes perfect! You can experiment with different techniques to find what works best for your hair type and desired look. Also, keep in mind that the humidity in the air will determine weather this style lasts all day or just a few hours, so always have a plan B!
