HOW TO GET LONGER LASTING TWISTS ON NATURAL HAIR

By Hadassah Agbaps - September 09, 2016



Hi people, what's been on?

I just had a breakthrough where frizzy mini twists are concerned and of course will share with you in a bit!

My favorite long term protective style after the "wash and go" is the mini twists.  I love mini twists because after the initial 4-5 hrs biceps and triceps workout installing them, they are very low maintenance. I usually install mini twists without added hair. This not only keeps my hair feeling light and comfortable, it also makes it easy to oil and moisturise my hair.

This means that by the time I'm taking down the style for the defined twist outs that follows, I have no breakage or dryness.

I take down my twists after two weeks. One reason I do this is because by the 2nd week, my twists become frizzy. To avoid retwisting after a short time, I enjoy the style as a twist out which I leave in for a further two weeks. So I finally end up with two styles and a protective style that lasts me a month with the least manipulation.

10 points for anti-breakage styling!

I did something a bit different with my most recent mini twists. Instead of twisting my hair alone, I added a little extension to each twist.

Why?

Because someone 'dashed' my mom a pack of white kinky hair extensions and I had to get in on the action! I needed an excuse to borrow some from her.
She wanted me to make a wig with it for her and since that one pack wasn't going to be enough,  she was only willing (grudgingly I must add) to spare me one little bundle.

I had also purchased a pack of Noble Gold Kinky Bulk in Color 1 to add to the wig so it would match her salt and pepper natural hair and on a second thought decided to borrow half of it to add to my mini twists!
Lol!
"Borrow borrow make me rich"

For each section of twist, I added a little kinky hair and loosely twisted to the end. I don't usually make my twists tight because my hair is fine and tight twists makes it look scanty. I also didn't use a lot of extension so it won't weigh down my hair and cause it to break.

Maintenance: Satin bonnet at night, oil and a little leave in in the morning.


One week, two weeks, THREE WEEKS later........

Oh frizz, where art thou????

I reluctantly took out those twists after 3 weeks and 5 days when they still looked sooooo good!!!!

Lesson learnt: ADD A LITTLE EXTENSION FOR LONGER LASTING FRIZZ FREE MINI TWISTS!!!!


THE END!!!
