” Don’t matter if it’s long, short. Do it, do it. Whip your hair! ” – Willow Smith
Hey guys! Hope everyone has had a blessed week. I’m super excited because I’ll be turning 20 tomorrow! Crazy how fast time flies. I’ve decided that this weeks topic is going to be solely on protective hairstyles. In the next 3 post, I will discuss different protective styles that I’ve tried myself. A Protective style is any hairdo that can keep your ends tucked away and promotes hair growth. These hairstyles require little maintenance, which allows your hair to stay moisturized. Today I’m going to discuss a protective hairstyle that I decided to try for the first time this month: Marley Twists.
I decided to get Marley Twists at the beginning of April just to try a new look for my birthday. Marley Twists are just two strand twists that are created with Marley Hair. Marley Hair resembles African Americans natural hair texture more than regular braiding hair. For thicker twists you’ll obviously use more hair to make a more voluminous look. Another similar look to Marley Twists are Havana Twists. The only difference is that you use different hair to create that look and they are more costly. While most say Marley Twists are the most popular due to their affordability, Havana Twists might be the better investment to some based on its practicality.
Another protective style that doesn’t involve adding additional hair is the infamous twist out. Many naturalistas all over love twist outs because their a simple way to moisturize and style your hair. All you have to do is create multiple two strand twists throughout your head, let them air dry, then unravel them. Wallah! You have a fabulous twist out that defines your natural curl pattern. Twist Outs can last you a week with good maintenance too! Why not mix it up a bit and try some of these protective hairstyles ladies.
Your soul sista,
