Fabulous Kinky Twists

May 16, 2008
Are you sick of the same old hairstyles? Looking for something new, trendy, and popular? If so, you have found the right place. Kinky twists are great for busy people who want a hairstyle that is easy to maintain. Unlike the ever-so-popular micro braids, kinky twists are not braided.

Here are some important points to keep in mind when getting (or doing) kinky twists:

1. If you have stray hairs that pop out of the twists, just smooth them down with a little bit of gel.

2. Some people find it difficult to start off with a twist. The actual twisting technique is difficult to develop at first, so try starting your twist with a cornrow if you are having difficulties. Cornrow down at least once but no more than twice. This will ensure that your twist is secure at the root, making it easier to complete the kinky twists.

3. The most important part for people to understand when doing kinky twists is that you are not just twisting the two strands of hair individually. This is done before the pieces are twisted across each other.

4. Instead of laying your parts one on top of the other, try staggering them. This will make the completed style fuller with more body.

5. Wrapping the hair at night with a silk scarf will keep the style intact while sleeping.

Kinky twists flow freely, just like micro braids, and they don't lay on the scalp like cornrows. It is possible to do kinky twists with your natural hair, but if it's not long enough you can add synthetic hair for a more natural look. Either way, from start to finish, kinky twists should take about six to eight hours to complete. Kinky twists can last up to three months with proper care and maintenance.

When you are finished doing your kinky twists, you must secure the ends or they will unravel. There are several ways to finish the twist. If you want some curl on the ends of your twists, roll the ends with a small rod. Once you've rolled the hair, dip the ends in hot water and towel dry. The water must be to the boiling point, so using a large container or jug with a handle will be very helpful. Be very careful around the boiling water. If you like your ends straight, just dip them in the hot water but don't use the rods.

Caring for your new kinky twists is even easier than doing them. If you want to add a little shine, just spray on some regular oil sheen. Don't forget to wrap the hair in a silk scarf at night.
