One of our favourite youtubers is Naptural85, her channel has a wealth of information and we love her for her simplicity. As we were both looking for simple protective styles that do not rob our hair of strands, we decided to watch the following video.
Naptural85 has changed our lives ya'll. She has changed the way we do our twists and opened up different ways of protective styling for us. We have always relied on braids as protective styles which were robbing our strands!
In the spirit of mini twists, one of us took the challenge of spending a whole day watching movies while doing twists. See below for the results,
I am hoping to keep the twists in for 5 weeks and will be documenting how they hold.
Happy Sunday Folks
Scrolling through the comments, you Kurlies have been asking how I prepped my hair for the mini twists
- I co- washed my hair and then did a henna gloss ( 7 tablespoons of henna mixed with Suave Lavender conditioner and 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil) I allowed this to sit in my hair for about 4 hours
- I rinsed the henna off and detangled and divided my hair into 6 sections. I then twisted each section with some castor oil
- I slept and begun work the next morning on dry hair which was stretched from the twists
- To twist, I spritzed some water and conditioner mix on each section and used a rat tail comb to part the small sections for twisting. The only product I used to twist was Aloe Vera Gel.
Hope this helps
