The twist out is a staple hairstyle for most naturals not just because it’s easy but because it looks great, is low maintenance and can be turned into a lot of versatile hairstyles like an updo.
The uaual method of doing a twist out is by putting your hair into two strand twists. But did you know that there are other ways to do a twist out?
Here are 5 different ways to do a twist out on your natural hair.
1) The two strand twist out:
This is the basic method of doing a twist out. You put your hair into twists and allow them to dry. Then you unravel the twists, gently separate and fluff with a comb or your fingers.
2) The twist and curl:
Some naturals experience their twists unravelling. Perm rods and flexi rods helps to prevent this. Other naturals use these to add more curl definition to their twist outs.
3) The flat twist out:
The flat twist out is like the cornrow version of braids. Unlike normal twists, you continue to grab more hair as you move down. Practice makes perfect and once you learn it, you might prefer it over normal twists for your twist outs.
4) Flat twist and curl:
The two combined methods will give you great curl definition especially at your ends. You can use perm rods or flexi rods.
5) The flat twist and Bantu knot:
Bantu knots are done by you wrapping your hair around itself to naturally curl your hair. So after doing your flat twists, wrap the end around itself at the base.
