More and more there is an emerging need for protective styles which are on trends too! We have listed our 3 favourite protective twisted hairstyles which would enable you to wear your hair in vogue, causing the least damage and hydrating it simultaneously.
As the name suggests, this one is a timeless classic that we black women will never get tired of. Probably one of the most established ways of shielding your hair, classic twists are light on the head, impart generous scalp access with low or zero maintenance.
Derived from the legendary Bob Marley, Marley braids use the specific type of hair (Marley hair) to add to your natural hair. Marley Hair is coarser in structure and closely resembles natural hair. They are twisted with the root of the natural hair. Giving it a thick dreadlock look, twist it to get it looking as fly as Marley. Word has it – the more unique the twist the more natural they appear!
Quite similar to Marley Braids in terms of the technique used but only exclusive quality Havana hair can give that Jumbo Havana Twist to your locks. A bit easier on your hands, sections parted in Havana are bigger than that of Marley. Want your twists more on the dreadlock side? Loosen the twist for a fuller and chunkier look. Lighter than Marley, Havana hair can also be reused after wearing them off.
Senegalese Twists or Rope Twists originated from the West African country of Senegal. These twists typically use Kanekalon hair which gives a tighter and smoother look. Here the twists are thinner and a bit sophisticated. Let your guard down as Senegalese twists are welcome to the world of embracing healthy hair without compromising on style. Play with the length of your twist from going short or long. Dabble in a bit of colour in between or at the ends to score some points. Tired of leaving your hair loose all the time? Make an updo with that twist and see that power coming right to you.
