Twist styles are a great way to wear natural hair and forego the cumbersome ritual of combing your tresses in the morning. Plus, these styles are versatile. Therefore, you can get as creative as possible. Making natural hair twist styles take shorter than braiding, so goodbye to spending hours at the salon.
On top of that, you can DIY on a lazy Sunday afternoon as you catch up with your favorite series or TV show. The style is easy to maintain and can last up to several weeks if done correctly. If you’re looking to create a natural hair twist style, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
How to Twist Natural Hair
Section your hair into four parts and use hair bands to separate them so you can work on one of the four sections at a time. Next, section a small part from one of the four sections. It should be the size of the twists you want. Split the sectioned part into two equal parts.
Take one section and twist it around the other, starting from the root and working your way down to the ends. Some people use gel or mousse to keep the twists in place. Nevertheless, avoid using too many hair products.
When you reach the ends of the hair, secure each twist with a small elastic band if it unravels. However, our textured hair holds twists without unraveling.
Here are a few ways you can style your twists.
