If you want a look that is more defined, you can try a two-strand twist out. This style works well on long 4c hair. This style can be achieved on freshly shampooed and conditioned hair or on dry hair that you revive with a leave-in conditioner or gel.
There are a few different techniques to use when doing a two-strand twist-out. We are going to go over one of the most popular ones.
Start off by sectioning your hair into small boxed sections. Detangle the section of hair with a Denman brush. Apply your 4c hair product such as a gel or leave-in conditioner. Take two strands of hair in each hand and intertwine them.
When you get to the bottom, curl the ends with your finger to create a small coil. Allow your hair to air dry or sit under a hooded dryer. When your hair is completely dry, place some Argan oil on your fingertips and carefully untwine your two-strand twists.
It’s important to not rack through the curls at this point to help keep the style intact. If you would like more height and volume, take a pick and use it towards the roots of the hair. This will help to lift your hair up.
