Twistouts are quick, easy styles to achieve fun, bouncy waves. It’s a great look for any party!

I’ve been styling my own twistouts for the past year. I think I’m getting better at it! It does take practice. Next time, I will show a step-by-step but for now I can outline the basics for how I achieve my twistout style.

1. Co-wash – I like to “co-wash” my hair with a conditioner. I don’t use a shampoo, although I have shampooed my hair about a week ago hehe. I like Herbal Essences Hello Hydration conditioner. I comb through it with a wide-tooth comb while it’s wet to help with even product distribution. Then rinse.

2. Twist – I prefer to twist while my hair is still damp. My favorite gel for achieving this style is LA Looks Gel Mega Hold (the yellow gel). I section a column of hair from my forehead to my neck, apply the gel and comb it through. Separate the section into 2 strands and twist from the top to the bottom. I like to secure the end with a roller so my ends are somewhat curly instead of straight. Continue the process until the entire head is twisted. Then cover with a silk scarf and wait.

That’s it! I normally twist before bed and by morning, my hair is dry and ready. I take the twists out to reveal bouncy curls! I like to shake, shake, shake my hair to let them loosen a bit.

The only issues I have with it now is that my hair is growing faster on the left side of my head so my shape is uneven. Not sure what I want to do about it. It’s uneven when I style it straight as well so I need to fix that with a cut. This style can last for several days. I either cover with a satin bonnet or retwist it a bit.

I hope you are able to try this style! If you do, I would love to hear about it!

  1. Great outcome!! I hope that when my hair gets longer, I can get the same look and texture!!
    I typically don’t use gel with my twist outs, but everyone does their own thing!! But I’m sure it maintains the style better!!
    Great info for natural newbies!!

    • Thank you for your comment 😀 yea that is true some people won’t need gel. I think my hair probably wouldn’t need gel so much except I straighten it a lot so my natural curl pattern is kinda less curly than it used to be. It’s a little wavy when wet but I dunno I should try it without gel to see what the outcome looks like haha I like your blog!
