How To: Twist-out On Relaxed HairMonday, December 22, 2014
When I’m stretching my relaxer I like to do low manipulation styles to camouflage my new growth. Twist-outs are fun and playful. They give me just the right amount of volume and wave to spice up my hair. The best part is, they are super easy to do and great for any occasion!
I like to moisturize and seal my hair first to lock in moisture. I then part my hair in 5 sections. I apply 1 pump of my favourite foam lotion to each section. Twist it up and clip. Take one section, split it in two (2).
I grab one of those sections and begin to two-strand twist all the way down to my ends. I twist each section tightly for more curl definition.
Starting from my ends, I roll the perm rod all the way up to my roots.
I continue to twist my entire head until complete. Each section should have 2 two-strand twists with perm rods on the ends. I have a total of 10 sections. At this point, I go under the hooded dryer for 15-20mins to allow the foam lotion to set. I throw on my satin bonnet and go to bed.
Are you a twist-out fan? What method do you use?
