Pineapple Twist Out


When Terysa, one of our GOC participants, sent me a link to her site, I fell in love with her fabulous twist out! She used a TnC technique and placement that I’ve never seen before and I immediately asked if I could re-post it on Hairscapades! She graciously obliged!

So, without further ado (I love to say that, don’t I?;), here is our first GOC Guest Feature!

Soooooo I’ve been trying to get my twist out ‘right’ for over a year!! Can you believe it???  Well, I tried again last weekend and it worked … correction, semi worked :-).

I will definitely try it again to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.

Products used:
Miracle 7 Leave in Mist – Sally’s
Garnier Fructis Texture paste – Walmart

I started with wet/damp hair:

1. I separated my hair into 4 (2 in the front, two in the back).

2. I then detangled each section and parted and flat twisted 3 smaller sections.

3. Allowed to dry about 85% and added Cantu Shea Butter for shine.

4. Carefully undid each twist and let alone, I fluffed on the second day – WAY WAY HUGE!!

Lasted for 3 days out and an additional 4 days for a huge bun! Picture overload below, kinda got camera happy.


Have you ever done a Pineapple Twist Out?  If so, how did it work out? If not, would you try it?

(I definitely want to try this one … that is, if I can figure out how to do a decent flat twist!! I even like the way it looks in the set! I’m sure there’s another style in there somewhere! I do think that I would have to let it dry 100% before releasing though.)

      • Terysa, have you tried the ORS Twist and Lock Gel? A lot of people seem to get great hold with it (have you seen KaiRox’s flexi rod set that she did with it? If not, go to the Video category under Style Library and you’ll find her youtube video. FABU!!!). I bought the stuff because of her, but have only used it to smooth my edges so far. So, not sure how it will work for me on a TnC yet. When I try it, I’ll give everyone a review!


  1. Oh I had a question. Between the day you let the twists out damp and didnt’ manipulate til the 2nd day, what did you do? Did you just put them under a bonnet and sleep? Thanks


  2. I love this. I have to agree that taking them out damp gives a more natural curl pattern. I like to do this on twist outs and it eliminates single strand knots.

  4. I’ve never been able to get a good twistout from single twists. Flat twist outs are where it’s at! I’ve never tried it this way though. The result is beautiful! Thanks for sharing the technique 🙂
