Roll Tuck and Pin 1||Fine Natural Hair

 Okay  so I mentioned in a previous post of being bored with long term protective styles. I also want to challenge myself to do more varied styles.

This is my " Roll Tuck and Pin" as they call it in the natural hair world. It took less than 10 minutes to do.

I found out that it is easier to work with stretched hair for this style.  I am using more bobby pins than I think I should be using. Once I get comfortable and better, I should be using fewer.

In comparison to Flat Twists, there is less manipulation with Tuck Roll and Pin than Flat Twists.  You must have completely detangled hair to flat-twist, whereas with RTP,  it only has to be stretched a little bit. You are also not combing through your hair with your fingers when rolling and tucking. However, with flat twists, there is a lot of manipulation.

They are still both my go-to styles as far as protective styles are concerned. But you will see me wear more RTP than flat twists due to the manipulation level.


  1. Very pretty!


  2. I wish my RTP's came out as good as yours!

    1. Wow!! I did not think that it looked that great but thanks!

  3. I am ALWAYS inspired by your hairstyles. Each time I read your blog or simply review some of your videos on youtube I feel motivated to do my hair. Thanks for all the pics and videos you share on natural hair, you really come up with some nice styles.


I will love to hear from you
