How to Get a Natural Hair Twist Style in 6 Easy Steps

Let's get to twistin'!

Looking for an incredibly easy and fun protective style to wear? The natural hair twist is a great choice! We love this style because it adds texture and makes caring for your hair much easier. This style is easy to create, but we must admit, it’s a little time consuming so only attempt when you have some free time. Once you get the hang of the twisting process, creating this look gets faster and this could become a go-to protective look on your roster.

Tutorial to create the perfect natural hair twist


Section hair.

Hair hack: Create a box section at the back of your head. The smaller the size of the section, the more defined the style will be.

Apply a light spritz of conditioning mist to the section to prep your hair. We highly recommend TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Leave-In Hydrating Mist!

Moisturize and twist.

Add some moisturizer from roots to ends and work in. The Good Stuff Intensive Nourishment Cream is perfect to hydration. Now, split your hair into two sections and weave the right section over the left. Continue all the way down the section.

Define and repeat.

Twist the combined end to give a more defined curl pattern. Repeat this process over your entire head until all of your hair is twisted.
