Natural Hair Tutorial | Twist Out With Dry, Stretched Hair Tutorial

Twist Out With Dry, Stretched Hair Tutorial
This is one style that I definitely got right!

The secret:


I used to do my twist outs on damp hair and would end up unsatisfied, because my hair would be "poofy" by the middle of the day and very tangled. But I learned during my HAIR WARS that the dry twist out set better, had more shine, had less tangles, flowed in the wind, had less shrinkage, and lasted for about 3-4 days without touch up.

Yes! Let's begin...


Sew in Weave Thread (purchased from local beauty supply)
*use any products that will make your twist out the bomb


Start on freshly washed, damp, ***moisturized***, and detangled hair.

Measure the thread is three to four times your hair length (I am at APL...I measured from head to hip twice).

African Threading To Stretch Natural Hair

Use sew in weave thread for African Threading process. Air dry and make sure the hair is completely dry before removing the thread (My hair took about 4 to 5 hours to dry)

Once your hair is stretched, separate your hair into three sections (top, middle, and bottom). Start with the bottom and separate it into 3 sections.

Braid at the root (maybe 3 passes) then begin twisting until about an inch to the end (I braid at the root so my roots won't be too puffy)

Get a dab of oil/cream and finger coil the ends until secure

Twist Out With Dry, Stretched Hair Tutorial

Do all over head until full of plump twists. Cover with a satin bonnet for the night. The longer you leave the twists in, the more defined your twist out will be.

The next day, undo your twists gently and with extra-care. Use a bit of light oil to take down each twist, if you like to reduce extra frizz.

Once taken down, style your hair the way you see fit then TAKE A SELFIE!

And that's it!

Natural hair says: find that go-to style for your own hair. Sometimes it will take a minute to figure out how to do the style. But once you try many times, you will figure it out for your own hair.

***Notice: I used my moisturizer while setting my hair and not after my hair was dry. I also did not apply more moisturizer to my hair when setting and only added light oil/cream to my ends. To execute a fluffy and flowing twist out, try not to use so many products. The more product you use, the more your hair will weigh down.***
