As part of my "Hair Growth Challenge" I'm including, more protective hair styles; to my weekly hair care regimen.
Havana Twist seem to be; all the rage.
It's a nostalgic twist (no pun intended) on the very popular " Poetic Justice Braids" aka Goddess Braids as with many styles come and go, through out the years. Styles are usually updated, to fit the look of a current era, throw back with a tweak.
Havana twist: Are basically double strand twist by adding "Havana Hair or Marley Hair" for a fuller chunkier effect; on the actual twist. It's a great alternative to a protective hair style. Before you decide to install "HT" highly recommend; you do some research and or consult a natural hair care professional.
If you're interested in installing (ht) yourself ( DIY) you can watch some youtube videos. It's important to moisturizer your hair and don't forget to seal your ends. I actually install about 20 twist used 2 packs of hair, my twist are not as chunky, this was my first attempt.
Next time I'll add more hair and a few more twist for a fuller look.
Leave - in conditioner
Shea butter creme for moisturizing
Evoo to seal the ends
Eco styler Olive oil
Twist and High Bun
Solange Knowles rocking Twist.
It's recommended that you keep havana twist; in no longer then 4 - 6 weeks at a time. Don't get them installed to tight, your hair is susceptible to breakage.
Don't forget to keep your twist and your hair moisturize. "I spritz my scalp and twist; with my own concoction, conditioner and Evoo"
