Twist Out for Short Natural Hair

Twist Out for Short Natural Hair
I really enjoy having my hair natural.  The versatility of being able to wear my hair curly or straight is great!  I've been natural for 3 years and I like wearing my natural hair short in twist outs because it takes less time to prefect my hairstyle than me doing a twist out on long hair, also the drying time is much faster.

Women stop me in public all the time wondering how I do my hair and what products I use. 

Here is a step by step guide on how I create my twistout  look:
Twist Out for Short Natural Hair

1. On freshly washed hair, I make sure to use a leave in conditioner and comb it through my hair. ( Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner )

2.  I part my hair in four detangled sections and add Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine to hold in the moisture in my hair.

3. In each sections, I add Eco Styling gel Super Protein Black in small sections I've created and twist my hair.

4. When my hair is fully twisted, I spray Shea Moisture's Raw Shea Elixir throughout my hair to give it a great shine.

5. I allow my hair to air dry or I use a hand held dryer to speed up the drying process.

6. Once my hair is fully dried, I put a bit of olive oil in my hands and start unraveling my twists from roots to tip.

7. For a much fuller look I use a pick comb to pick it out.

8. For next day hair, I add a bit of water to my hair using a spray bottle, oil, and Jane Carter's Hold and Lock Spray and retwist my hair every night until wash day again.  On my 3rd day hair, I use a bit of Eco gel to retwist for better hold.

Since it's Winter time and I've been very busy with family activities, I've started to blow out my hair and then adding Eco gel before twisting.  I haven't had a problem with heat damage because I make sure to use heat protection.  Jane Carter has a good one that I like to use called Jane Carter Hair Nourishing Cream.

  1. Your hair always looks so nice. I told myself I am going to give natural a try. But, my roots are screaming for a relaxer right now. I would love to find some advice for those just starting out. Thanks for linking up at #ThrowbackThursdayLP

    1. The transitioning part is very hard and I did mini chops to cut off all of my relaxer ends. YouTube videos helped me out a lot during my journey. But I'm glad I went natural and I'll never go back to a relaxer!

  2. Very cute hairstyle. And, I love using olive oil, it is so good for the hair.
