Yarn Wraps done with the African Threading Technique/Protective Styling




Well, since AT works so well on my daughter, I decided to give it a try on myself but with yarn.

And I love them. It was very tedious putting these in and for that reason, these babies are staying for at least 6 weeks. I used Black and Brown yarn as black just makes me look like the dullest looking person in the whole universe.

They look like locs, don't they? I am beginning to think about locing my hair since I love these so much. What do you think?

As usual, I do have a video for this so stay tuned for that. Also expect more vlogs of my hair maintenance

Thanks for reading this post. I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions, please contact me at coilybella@coilybella.com.

  2. I put in yarn twists over the weekend and I love them! They took me 10 hours! I'm hoping to keep them in at least 3-4 weeks.

    1. Really?
      Great Minds thinking alike here...LOL
      Wow! Only 10 hrs?, I spent three days. Of course I took plenty of breaks. 3 to 4 weeks is a great period of time to keep your hair un-manipulated. I am keeping mine for 6 weeks but will redo the edges every two to three weeks.

  5. Please post the video, sista!
    This style looks beautiful on you.
    I've been trying to figure out how I can use wool on my hair but with a trendy style. I like wool because it's natural. (I'm guessing knitting wool is the same as yarn.)

    1. Aww.. Thank you so much.

      I have to mention that this is not wool yarn. I did use Yarn but it is acrylic. Wool yarn is not recommended for hair as it will loc into your hair and you do not want that. Buy the acrylic knitting yarn. I am not sure of where you are located but if you are in the US, buy Red Heart Acrylic Yarn. If you are in Nigeria, look for acrylic knitting yarn. I will ask some of my Nigerian Natural Hair bloggers for info.

  6. I love this look! So pretty and your looking great. My niece wants yarn twists and I just my try them. I'm not sure if a 6 year old is ready to sit through the time needed to install them. Maybe over the Christmas break, we'll see.

    1. Thanks Jen.
      My 3 yr old sat through it so maybe she will too. Oh yeah, christmas break sounds good as you will need a lot of time.

  7. I like this look on you and, moreover, I also like the way this length looks on you. I hope you will keep us posted on your six weeks in these braids. Good choice to include brown as well.

  9. I look forward to the video, because i can't imagine putting in thread and yarn in the hair at the same time. Very pretty style. I've been meaning to install yarn in my hair, but I just think it'll soak all the moisture from my hair and be smelly when it gets wet. Please let us know how it goes.
    very pretty hairstyle! love the length too.

    1. Thank you:)
      I hope my post is not confusing because I did not use thread and yarn at the same time. I used the threading technique to add yarn into my hair. I actually steamed my hair a few hours ago and did not experience any funny smell, and I keep my hair moisturized and sealed constantly.

  10. Very Nice! It looks really good on you.

  11. Hello Tinuke,

    Nicely done !

    I’ve done the curled African threading hairstyle twice this year (picture is on my blog), and each time I had it in for 3 weeks.

    I’d recommend threading, it’s the best protective style that I have ever done as my strands were locked in.

    On take-down days, my hair was smooth, and I could even still smell the leave-in conditioner that I’d applied before my hair was threaded. It’s important that the hair is well moisturized and oiled prior to being wrapped in thread, it’s almost like marinating chicken in spices and then covering in foil paper :-)

    Super easy to manage too, all I did spritz with a water and glycerin mix.
