Whether your social media platform of choice is Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or Instagram, you have probably stumbled upon this new twistout method for natural hair. First posted by @msrokia on Instagram, it has quickly become a sensation on the web. Weeks after the original post, you can still find the picture and renditions of the style circulating the internet.
This style is such a new take on the traditional twistout! We often try so hard to create new looks, but this shows you that it is as easy as 1-2-3. When twisting your hair it is important to remember a few things:
- The direction you twist your hair will play a major role in how your hair will lay when taken down. If you want to switch up the look of your twistout, then simply change the direction of your twists!
- The use of curl rods, flexi rods, and bantu knots can add soft curls and volume to your twistout.
- Separate curls to create a more natural looking curls with lots of volume.
To achieve this style, @msrokia has said on Instagram that she used Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and flat twisted her hair while wet and let it air dry. How beautiful is this style?! More volume is created around the front with this twistout method vs. the traditional. It is simply gorgeous!
