I am loving Marley hair these days. I wanted to try the trendy Havana Twists, and I did try but those things are just too bulky for my liking. They are ridiculously big. However, I love the look of big twists so I did something that looked similar.
I used Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and raw Shea Butter to twist my hair. As a result of this, the extensions became very soft and fluffy to the touch.
I used the invisible method so that the twists would look like they grew out of my scalp.I sealed the ends by using feathered pieces of hair (How I prepare the extensions is included in the video for this style). Furthermore, I used the tiniest(dark blue in color) perm rods to curl my ends which were dipped into hot water.
I love these for one important reason:the parts are big. For fine hair, parting the hair too small can be damaging. The reason is that, when it's time to remove the extensions and a lot of shed hair has accumulated in that little section parted out, there is bound to be breakage. Again, the concept of "strength in numbers" is crucial to the length retention of fine hair.
Again, I will be keeping these for four weeks. I will not be washing them. I will be using the same method I used for the long Marley twists to maintain my hair.
