In the wonderful world of natural hair, there is an infinite number of styles for our tresses. Twists are a great option for naturalistas of all textures and curl patterns. Twists, or two strand twists, are a specific hairstyle where you take two locks of hair and wrap them around each other. Twists are quicker to complete than braids (and easier to take out), and they’re a fantastic option for protecting your natural hair with minimum tension while maintaining moisture. Plus, taking them out creates an entirely new style. Twist hairstyles can last anywhere from a week to a few months, depending on the style and whether you use extensions.
Similar to braid hairstyles, there are many different types of twists. You can have flat twists, which resemble cornrows, but only use two strands of hair. Or, you can opt for extensions and create Senegalese twists or Marley twists with kinkier hair. Twists also serve as a transition hairstyle: when you have a two strand twist or flat twist in your hair and take it out, you have a whole new hairstyle. This is a great option for those interested in low manipulation or protective styles. You can twist your hair, wear it for up to a week and then take out the twists for another hairstyle that will last up one more week.
