Havana! Havana! Havana!
This is it! I’ve finally found my go-to, long-lasting protective style! This past weekend, I redid my Havana twists much smaller than my previous installment. I am much happier with these results. These are by far my favorite protective style! I just love how versatile, lightweight, natural-looking and easy this style is! My hair is happy, I’m happy!
My current twists are medium-sized long Havana twists as opposed to the past two weeks’ Chunky Havana Twists. Since it was my first time doing Havana twists on myself, I didn’t know how much hair to use, how big to part the sections or how to make the twists appear chunky. However, from my first experience, I’ve learned what to do and I’ve made some big adjustments for my current install which I love!
So here are some tips from my experience:
In order to have a chunky or thick and full look, you should loosely twist the hair. Since this hair is coarse (Marley hair), the twists will loosely hold and unlikely unravel. My first install, I used more hair than needed (5 strands per twist) and made my twists fairly tight. This time, I used only 3 strands and sectioned my twists smaller; this ensures that the style would last much longer than the two weeks my Chunky Havana twists lasted.
Finish and Style Tip:
I used white cold wave rods to curl my ends. I dipped them in hot water and let them dry completely before unraveling. Curled ends makes your twists look fresh, cute, and finished. The curls can last as long as you have your twists installed.
