20 Irresistible Ways To Style Your Kinky Twists November 24, 2017

Protective styles have been around for the longest time and it feels like hair stylists are coming up with newer and trendier ones every single day. Kinky twists are one of those adorable protective styles that you absolutely need to try out! This styling technique involves attaching Marley hair to the roots of your hair by braiding them at the very top and twisting them the rest of the way down. You can play around with the length and colors of your hair extensions to create kinky twists hairstyle that’s uniquely your own! But before we dive into the best styling ideas, let’s first look at how you can do kinky twists in your hair right at home…

How To Do Kinky Twists At Home

What You Need

  • Hair brush
  • Rat tail comb
  • Marley hair extensions
  • Hair gel
  • Boiling hot water in a bowl

What To Do

  1. Start off by brushing out all the knots and tangles from your hair.
  2. At the very front of your head, use a rat tail comb to neatly partition and pick up a 1 inch section of hair. You could use some sectioning clips to keep the rest of the hair out of the way.
  3. Apply some hair gel at the roots of this section to give it some hold.
  4. Pick up a section of hair extension and fold it in half. Marley hair extensions are recommended here as their rough texture ensures that your twists stay firmly put in place without unraveling.
  5. Place the folded part around the root of your 1 inch section of natural hair.
  6. With your natural hair acting as the middle strand and the two halves of the Marley hair acting as the side strands, simply braid for about 2-3 stitches to attach the extensions to your hair.
  7. Then, redivide the 3 strands into 2 strands and individually twist them right till the ends in a clockwise direction.
  8. Now, intertwine them with each other in an anticlockwise direction right till the end. You can cut off the excess extensions according to the length that you want your kinky twists to be.
  9. Repeat this process all over your head until all your hair is in kinky twists.
  10. Dunk the ends of all your kinky twists in a bowl of boiling hot water to seal them.

Now, wasn’t that so easy! Lucky for you that kinky twists are one of the easiest protective styles to do on yourself. With that out of the way, let’s look at the trendiest ways to style your kinky twisted hair!
