Hair of the Week: Mini Twists

Image

Greeting lovelies! A more appropriate name for this post might be Hair of the Weeks. Sunday I spent hours upon hours styling my hair into mini twists. The style, though time consuming, is a great protective style for natural hair and it is meant to last a long time. Perfection for my busy schedule! So its been a couple days already, but I plan on keeping this style for another 2-3 weeks. I only used Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In, the basic two strand twisting method, and LOTS of patience to achieve this style. Its my first time doing the twists this small and I like them thus far. I like the way they coil up at the ends. The shrinkage with this hairstyle is crazy! My twist are literally more than twice the length they appear when I stretch one. I may stretch the twists out over time using braids or ponytails and see how they look that way. But I’m not too, too obsessive over length appearance.Anyways, enough of me being a Chatty Cathy! Here are a couple more pics where you can see the twists a little more clearly.
