Creating picture-perfect twist outs can seem a lot tougher than it really is. With a little prep, practice and the right extensions (we recommend Darling’s Kingston Braid extensions), you can create the most stunning twist outs in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
1. Washing and Detangling
Gently wash your afro extension with a cleansing shampoo and conditioner. Separate the hair in large sections and detangle it with a wide-toothed comb. Make sure you apply a good quality leave-in treatment on damp hair so the extension can retain the moisture while you prepare your hair extension for twist outs.
2. Parting And Sectioning
After you have gently detangled your hair extension, start dividing it into small sections. The smaller the sections, the thinner the twist.
3. Start Twisting
Once the hair is divided into various sections, you can start the twisting process. Pick a section of hair from the nape of your neck, twist the extensions to the bottom of the hair and divide the strands into two halves and start twisting them into one another. Keep twisting until the end and lock the edges. Repeat this process all over your head.
4. Seal the twists
Use a good Mousse to finish the look and keep twists looking tidy.
