TWist-out on Short Natural Hair

General Tips/Considerations

  • The size of your parts will vary based on the length of your hair. The shorter your hair, the smaller the parts.
  • Be prepared to spend more time than those with longer hair. If you’re growing out your hair, this is good practise. Don’t give up. You’ll be doing twist-outs in just a few minutes if you keep practising.
  • If the ends of your hair are blunt and won’t stay twisted, create a bantu knot at the end of pin the ends onto your scalp to secure it.
  • Re the last point – using bantu knots create a more curly fro look with pinning can help to stretch out and lengthen your twist-out. Both methods can be used regardless of hair length.
