Achieve Twist-out definition in 4 steps

Hey loves,

So I have some exciting news!!! I finally got a defined twist out after months and months of trying to deliberately get a good twist out. I was so excited during the take down that believe it or not I faux shot a you tube video in the bathroom. The movement was craayzee oh and I also got to enjoy a bit of length.

Excuse the vanity that will be displayed in this post. Seriously though, who doesn’t love a good twist out for themselves? Well today let us talk about how to get that definition in four steps. They are absolutely easy and you will only need just a few products.

It is IMPORTANT to begin with freshly washed hair because hair without build up does give good style results. I would recommend using clay (bentonite or rhassoul) to wash your hair because the feeling is awesome… and most importantly this is where the definition begins. Also a good conditioning /deep conditioning makes your hair very manageable.


-Leave-in conditioner

-whipped Shea butter

-comb (optional)


Beginning with freshly washed hair, apply your moisturizer… then seal in the moisture with your whipped Shea butter.

Section your hair into six sections, then in each section divide your hair to even smaller sections and begin to two strand twist.

When you twist ensure that you don’t borrow hair.

Add some more Shea butter to the ends of your hair just for some added love. Make sure to twirl the ends of your twist around your finger

Let your hair dry preferably overnight in a stretched style like banding.


Ensure your hair is dry before you take down

Apply some oil on your hands and on the twists to prevent frizz during take down

Gently take down the twists….and separate the hair only where it wants to separate

And voila… definition…

Love and love
