Twists

3 Jan

Happy New Year to you! I hope your New Year is filled with bountiful blessings beyond your imagination. 2012 was a challenging year for me but I made it through all obstacles that came before me and I have a new fresh outlook for the New Year! I haven’t ever been so motivated to make a year success than I am about 2013. This is going to be a great year for me and for you as well.

The week before Christmas I installed some twists with extensions in my hair. Some call them two strand twists, rope twists, senegalese twists, etc. I have been wanting a protective style for a while now and I was determined to do my OWN. I tried the twists before but I couldn’t get the grip right for some reason. So I watched a few more YouTube tutorials, practiced and I did it. I mastered the twists better by starting with a braid about an inch long and then two strand twisting.

It took me about 5 hours to do my whole head. I was surprised that I did them that fast. I made the middle section bigger and then I ended up taking out the middle because all of that hair was too heavy. I used about 4 packages of 100% Kankelon Hair and it can be found at any Beauty Supply Store. Since the middle was not unfinished, I had to wear the twists in a bun, which is no biggie for me because I love a bun of any kind. I wore them for a few weeks and then took them out. I was over them. LOL Plus now that I know how to do it on my own I can do them at my convenience. If you are interested in trying your own twists or box braids there are tons of techniques and tutorials on YT, just take your pick and find the technique that works for you.
