Here’s How To Get The Perfect Afro Twists In 5 Simple Steps

Wash and condition your hair with a shampoo and rinse out conditioner. Washing your hair is important because it gets rid of all the dirt and allows your hair accept products into it.

Step 2

Blow dry your hair. The major difference between Afro Twists and the normal ones is the fact that you need to use a blow dryer to straighten the hair. Put the blow dryer on low heat but high power. Don’t burn your hair or cause heat damage to it.

Step 3

Section your hair. You can first divide your hair into 4 sections. You’ll attend to your hair section by section. In these sections apply your leave in or gel or mousse onto the strands.

Step 4

In one section, “cut” a smaller portion to be twisted. Divide the hair into 2 and twist your right half over the left half (or vice versa) and continue the motion until you get to the end of your hair. Repeat this until a whole section is done then you move to the next.

You need to make sure you sleep in a hair bonnet. If you wake up and the hair is all over the place, arrange it properly and cover it with a scarf. After 10-15 minutes remove it and go your way.

We hope these steps help you out.
