I'm so sorry! Nope. The question is whether it is done twisting. So my friend has a bass and one of his room mates played a prank on him and loosened all his strings on his bass. Necks don’t tend to twist on their own; there had to be some opposing force working on the wood to cause the problem. Since they were loosened as much as it sounds like they were, the neck warped. When changing strings, you should do them indiviually. One corner of the wood is lifted by about 1/4"-3/8". Now he swears up and down that the loosening on the strings caused the neck to become twisted. And the instruments still work great because each string has its own straight-line plane between nut and bridge.

If it were a blank or rough lumber, you could feasibly rip it for laminates and see how they move. Deff can. BECAUSE THEY LOOSENED ALL THE STRINGS!!!

Why is the sexy image / persona important for female musicians if men don't  typically consume women's  music . Even when the tension is checked, wood is porous and adversely affected by heat and humidity and may need to have a good guitar room humidifier. Your friend is screwed. The strings of a guitar exert considerable tension than cause curvatures or twisting to the neck of the instrument. Don't eff around with instruments, it's really not funny. Oh and screwing with the truss rod could bend it too. This doesn't sound right from what ice read and heard. If the wood isn't properly selected (i.e., has straight grain) or is not properly dried before use it can warp or twist. If he let it lean against something or allowed some sort of weight to apply pressure on the neck for a while it could have warped.

A piece of wood that has twisted after being rough more than likely still has unfavourable internal tensions, they might well be in equilibrium right now but once you start removing more wood for neck shaping, you can't tell how these balanced tensions will continue to play out. FYI, it's a bolt on neck so I could recover later, but I don't want to invest time fretting and shaping the neck if it's going to be worthless. Those things don't come cheap! This doesn't sound right from what ice read and heard. I'd plane or sand it flat and set it aside to see if moves some more. Not sure how accurate this will be. If its left long enough and has some temp changes. In all honesty, twisting is a warning sign that you should consider as being a potential write-off. One corner of the wood is lifted by about 1/4-3/8.
