Natural HairStyle of the Week: Kandis Foster Shares How She Does Her Vibrant Twist Out

Fellow natural haired sistah, Kandis Foster comes with many answered questions for us! Specifically, about her gorgeous two-stranded twists!

Her disclaimer: “Keep in mind, what works for me, may not work for you. Experiment ladies…”

Products she uses & steps:

  • Spray bottle (water): makes her hair much more manageable.
  • Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie: Separate hair into manageable sections. DETANGLE, & moisturize, paying close attention to the ends.
  • Olive Oil: Seal in the moisture with oil.
  • African Pride Shea Moisture Curl Pudding: A butter or cream product is always best as a styler or curl definer.


She started on stretched hair from a flat twist out that was about a week old. Style as you go, one section at a time; after using products 2 & 3 from the previous picture. Kandis also notes: Defined parting isn’t necessary for this style. Just grab small to medium sized sections.

Keep twisting until your hair is all two-stranded twisted up! Let hair air dry completely!


  • When she gets to the ends, she don’t continue twisting, instead she coils them around her finger and watches it curl up!
  • When hair has dried completely, put a little oil on your hands (minimizing frizz) and separate, separate, separate until you get the desired volume and look that you want. Take an afro pick and lift your roots to get rid of spaces. Shake, shake!

Voilá! Magic!

Hope this helps…

xo, Kandis
