How to Do Afro Hair Twists

Get Excited! Let's talk beauty...


Did you know that twists and twist outs are great protective styles that give fragile hair a much-needed break from day-to-day combing and styling manipulation?

Pro Tip
Gently shampoo your hair, then rinse thoroughly.

Apply a conditioning product, preferably from the same product line.


Allow the conditioner to sit on your hair for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.


Towel dry your hair, and then spray a leave-in conditioner or detangling spray on the hair.


Begin detangling your hair with your fingers. Follow up with a wide-toothed comb to remove stubborn tangles.


Apply a moisturizer to the hair. Focus your moisturizing product on the ends of the hair.


Blow dry your hair on a warm heat setting for 5 minutes to reduce shrinkage and lengthen the strands.


Direct the blow dryer nozzle downward at all times to reduce frizzing. Do not dry your hair completely. Dry it just enough to lengthen out some of the kinks.


Use your finger to section off a piece of hair. The width and thickness of the section you choose depend on the twist size you desire. Slender twists will need less hair than thicker twists.


Apply a butter product to the section of hair for shine and definition. Separate the section into two strands of equal thickness.


Starting at the scalp, carefully twist the strands of hair around each other in a clockwise manner, left strand over right.


Twist the strand all the way down, leaving about 1/2 inch of hair remaining at the ends.


Twist the last 1/2 inch of hair ends around your finger several times. This will encourage it to curl and keep the entire twist intact on its own.
