As a new fan of twist outs, I have been thinking about the idea of wearing twists in my hair. I have seen other naturalistas rocking twists and have always wanted to try them on my hair.

Two summers ago I tried twists. They lasted for about an hour before I unraveled them and moved on.

On Tuesday I tried twists again. I made them smaller. Didn't worry about parting my hair to make the parts neat (the only part that I worried about was my side part...). I love the results. I've been playing with a couple of hairstyles as well.

How I did I achieve this look?

  • Started with freshly co-washed and finger detangled hair.
  • Applied Lacio Lacio leave in to my hair in sections.
  • Applied Shea Moisture Curl and Style Conditioning Milk and African Pride Oil to each section
  • Twisted my hair and sealed my ends with Jane Carter's Nourish and Shine

I'm currently on day four. I might be redoing the front of my hair because it's getting a bit frizzy. But this works as a great protective style!

Any other twisters out there have any great styling tips to share for the two strand twists?

Happy twisting everyone!
