Yarn Twists for Winter! (Hair Talk)


I have been braiding and styling my own hair for about five years now from two strand twists, yarn braids, to box braids. But two protective styling (braids) that I could not get down are twists (yarn twists, Senegalese twists, Marley twists), and cornrows.

But I can finally cross one off from my list.

I spent the last two days braiding. For the longest time now, I wanted to try Yarn Twists or Senegalese Twists but for the life of me, I couldn’t get that twisting method down.Time after time. After watching several videos and even making The Hubz watch it with me so maybe he could tell me what I was missing (lol), I finally got it!

Everyone has their own method, but one particular lady explained it so well. So simple. ย Twist down and hold the other strands with other finger, and switch as you would with two strand twistsโ€”repeat.ย Thanks to this beautiful lady on YouTube!

Now my hair will be nicely protected all winter. I just wanted something different from the usual yarn braids and box braids!

It took me two (2) days total on and off with work and my family, and I used 8 strands for each!
