Okay, so you’ve lived that braided life, worn your weave like a total queen and even fluffed out your strands to incredible heights, but what now? Enter: the natural hair twist.
A sleek and stylish way to wear your natural hair, this look is suitable for everyday wear – all in 7 simple steps! So grab your favourite leave-in conditioner and let’s get twisting.
Section Your Hair.
Start by creating a box-shaped section at the back of your head. Remember, the smaller the box shape the tighter and more defined your end style will be.
Prep This Section.
Now apply a light spritz of a leave-in conditioner to this section of hair, as this will help to hydrate, detangle and make the styling process smoother. We like to reach for the SheaMoisture Miracle Hair Styler Leave-In Treatment that makes detangling super easy.
Apply a Cream.
For further hydration and to smooth down any flyaways, apply a moisturiser or oil like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil along the lenghts and comb through using a wide-toothed comb.
Split Section Into Two.
Okay, you’re all prepped and ready to style!
Now split the section into 2 halves.
Twist your right half over the left half (or vice versa) and continue the motion until you get to the end of your hair.
Repeat steps 1-5 over your entire head.
If desired you can sleep with the twists overnight, protecting them with a silk scarf or bonnet.
Lay Your Edges!
If you have any baby hairs, lay them using a toothbrush and some hair gel.
This will provide tonnes of control with a high-shine finish to keep your strands in place.
