Kinky Twists on Relaxed Hair

For 2012 results, check out this post.

I did my sisters hair last weekend in Kinky Twists. She typically wears her relaxed hair down everyday and wanted a change/break. She also wants to stretch her relaxer.

I thought this was going to be easy because I did kinky twists for someone before. But the big difference was the last person I did them for, was natural.


So, in order to blend in my sisters straight relaxed hair with the Kinky(Marley) hair, I had to:

* Start off  braiding
*then on one half of the small section, I braided the marley hair with her hair until her hair stopped
*then I twisted the braided section with the loose kinky section

*** For Future Reference, I will work off of more textured hair such as a braid-out!******

This took me about 12 hours

I really wish I taped it, because it's a lot easier to show then say. Next Time I will though.

For Maintainence She is:

Spraying daily and  nightly with African Pride Braid Spray
Putting Kinky Twists into 6 Large Twists Nightly
Securing with Perm Rods
Tie down edges with silk scarf
Tuck Rest of Hair in Bonnet



*These pics were taken a week after doing them



And this is how she usually wears them

  3. Yes, I said its crazy cuz I can't do hair at all. You are one strong woman to be able to do that for 12 hours :) It came out real nice though.
