Kelli has really long hair. It’s based her hip bone, and with any extra head of hair around the house, it can be a lot of work! Most of the time Kelli is wearing braids. I’ve attempted two strand twist on her hair in the past, but they just unravel seconds after. I decided to try a new method this time. I started off braiding the hair about an inch down, and then combined the three strands to make two, and start twisting.
I do her twist on freshly washed and detangled hair. I put the hair in braids so that it can air dry overnight and stay stretched. I moisturize the hair with Cantu Shea Butter Leave In. The Cantu also helps to give the hair a soft hold. I like to do the twist in sections. I start off at the roots braiding the hair about one inch. Then I start twisting all the way down to the ends. I use a small amount of Cantu to smooth and curl the ends of the twist.
This style took me about 4-5 hours.
So far she has been wearing them for over a week, and they are really cute on her.
I will do an update to let you know how long they last. 🙂
