African Threaded Corkscrew Plaits




I tried another version of African Threading, which is the corkscrew method.  Basically, instead of threading really close, completely covering hair with thread, I decided to leave small sections of hair uncovered with thread. I have not perfected my skills yet but once I do I will do a tutorial on it. I actually really like this technique because it allows me to manipulate her hair much easier as opposed to when her hair is completely wrapped.






Since she has fine hair, I do not make knots on her ends as that could easily break her hair. I always add threads to the ends to lengthen the plaits and for knotting.



Once I  was done with the individual plaits, I divided them into two sections longitudinally. I threaded the ends together on each side and made a mini bun that was held securely by a hair accessory.









I usually keep her threaded styles for two weeks and moisturize them regularly.




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