Kinky Twists Benefits, Tips, and Pictures

Kinky Twists are the wanna be natural style that is great for transitioning. They take about three to four hours to install and should be easy to take out. When the braider is installing the twists, she/he begins with a braid and then soon after will start to twist your hair. They are very similar to the Senegalese Twists, except for the fact that true Senegalese Twist are twisted all the way down and the hair type used is different.

They are one of the most natural looking hairstyles that use extensions. This is because the hair used is very similar to our natural hair texture. The best hair to use is Naffy Collection if you want a more afro or puffy look.

Styling

Here are some helpful tips on how to style your twists without causing damage to your hair.

  • To curl ends roll with small rod and dip ends into boiling water
  • Let the perimeter of the braids loosen before you style too much to prevent damage to the hairline.
  • Unless you get micro-kinky, you will be limited in how you use hair accessories because they tend to be bulky. Depending on the type of hair used, they can be hard.

Helpful Tips

  • Wash your hair as needed with diluted shampoo and apply a leave in conditioner.
  • Keep your hair and scalp moisturized because the synthetic hair tends to soak up your scalp's natural oils.
  • Be sure to let your stylist know you want them done equally sized. They tend to do the front small and the back large.
  • Kinky Twists are great for thin hair because they are very thick!
  • Micro Curly Kinky Twists

  • Apply gel or mousse to the weave in order to manage loose hairs.
  • Spray with oil sheen to give it a little shine.

Benefits

  • Protective style
  • Get up and go - low maintenance hairstyle
  • Natural appearance - very similar to the two-strand twists worn by many naturalists
  • No shrinkage when wet
