Doing a Natural Hair Twist? Find out how it's really done!
More and more women are wearing their hair in natural styles. It takes time to get used to styling natural hair after years of relaxers or weaves. A natural hair twist is a good style to use on natural hair. The style is easy to achieve at home, once you have the hang of it. Once styled, it will last for days until your next shampoo.
Twists done with two peice sections of hair are a popular and easy hair styling option. This is a relatively easy style that can be used while attempting to grow your natural hair. You only need about three inches of hair to achieve this look. The style is easy to achieve at home without a visit to the hair salon.
To start this style you will need a fine tooth comb and some styling product.
Before you begin, condition the hair and towel dry.
Part the hair with a comb as desired. You can experiment with large or smaller sections to create a variety of looks.
Put some gel through the hair in the section before you begin to twist.
Separate the hair into two sections and begin to twist the hair downward in a spiral pattern.
Pull on the hair gently to help the hair hold the twist firmly. Continue this pattern until all the hair is twisted into two strand hair twists. This style will last from two to six days.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial:
Be sure to take care of your twists after you have finished styling. Protect the style when you sleep with a scarf over your head. Mist the hair with water each morning to bring your style back to life. Spray as needed using a moisturizing spray or natural oil to help the hair retain moisture. This will keep your natural hair twist style from becoming dry and will protect it from damage.
