Since your hair is relaxed you already have that going against you so choose which side you want your hair to fall and part your hair into sections accordingly.
When applying the hair gel you only want to use just enough to provide you with hold. If you over apply you could develop a gunky buildup. Adding a curler or perm rod at the end of your hair will give an added boost necessary for a twist out for relaxed hair to come out well.
Style tip! You may need to apply just a bit more gel to the ends before wrapping them onto the curler.
You can allow it to air dry or you can go under a dryer. Once your hair is complete dry it is now time for take down. Adding oil to your hair will increase its shine and to tame fly-aways. You want to pull the twists apart slowly and gently as to not disturb the pattern too much and not to introduce too much frizz. You can tease your roots with a comb or you can gently massage your scalp with your fingers for a teasing effect. This will get rid of your part marks and will give your roots some lift, giving your hairstyle a more voluminous look.
And you are done! You have completed your twist out for relaxed hair and if you followed all the steps correctly your hair should be looking amazing right now. If you need to manipulate your hair add some oil to your finger tips and work slowly so that you don’t disturb the twist out pattern too much.
