I always get questions about how I am able to make my two strand twist last, and what are some things I do to care for my hair while wearing them. I decided to do a blog that covered as much as possible. This information can also be used for twist or braids with extensions. 🙂
There was a time during my journey when I could wear my twist for four even five weeks. Now, that I am further in my journey, I get bored really easy so it just doesn’t work! LOL! I wore them so much in 2011 I just became a little tired of them. Don’t get me wrong, I still love them, but I am experimenting more with my loose hair this year.
It is very important that I twist securely at the roots. If I don’t, my roots will start to get puffy in the first week. I usually apply a leave in or gel to the ends of my twist to help keep them from unraveling. To maintain my hair at night I have more than one method I use. It really depends on what you want your twist to look like.

These are also methods that can be used to keep twist stretched!
Wrapping Method: I wrap my twist around my head to keep them stretched out, and tie down with a satin scarf.
Bunning Method: This is when I put the twist into one ponytail. I twist the ponytail around similar to the method used for bantu knots and bun the hair up.
Pineapple Method: A high ponytail that sits on the top of the head. The hair falls down sort of like a pineapple. LOL!

I hope this covers it all….I will add to it as needed! 🙂
