Styles with Long Marley Twists


So I have had my Marley Twists for 4 weeks now and they come out tommorow. Throughout the time I wore these twists, I did not wash my hair but I did clean my scalp a few times a week. Check out my regimen for Marley Twists HERE.
Freshly installed Twists on June 7th


Most of the time, I wore my twists as shown below
Fishtail Braid Updo
How to: Bend forward from your waist. Braid twists from the back to the front. Swirl the end of the braid to one side and pin down where the very end is.

High Bun
How to:Bend forward from your waist. Gather twists into a high ponytail and secure with a headband. Take small section of twists and twist clockwisely around the rest of the twists, at the base of the ponytail. Once you reach the end of that section, tuck the ends into the base of the ponytail.  Grab another section and repeat till all the twists are tucked in. You don't need pins if you secure the twists properly

Side-braided ponytail
How to: Flat twist Marley twists starting from either side to the other side. Continue flat twisting to the back. Then gather the ends into a low ponytail

How to: Divide twists into 10 sections. Wrap each section with a piece of yarn. Leave a large space between each segment. When you get to the end, push the last segment up for a corkscrew effect. Make a knot on the yarn to secure it. Repeat on other sections of twists. Dip wrapped twists hot water for about 10 seconds. Remove the yarn.
A CENTER BUN
How to: Gather twists into a ponytail and secure with a headband. Take small section of twists and twist clockwisely around the rest of the twists, at the base of the ponytail. Once you reach the end of that section, tuck the ends into the base of the ponytail.  Grab another section and repeat till all the twists are tucked in. You don't need pins if you secure the twists properly

  3. My goodnes...I love them all lol Well, you already know I'm a sucker for buns so those are my favorite.

    Looks like you enjoyed these braids and had fun with them. Is there any reason you decided not to completely wash with them in?

    1. Thanks Kay!! I really enjoyed the twists. I decided not to wash them to avoid tangles. Every time I wash extensions, My hair gets tangled and I loose hair. I made a post about my new extension cleansing regimen, which worked great, because when I took my twists out, I did not have any breakage.
