Two Strand Twists

Syd and I are in the middle of a hectic couple of weeks. Our calendar is packed and we don't have a lot of time for hair. I didn't have much time for hair tonight, either, so I decided to put her hair into 2 strand twists. This is one of our go-to styles because it's easy, much quicker than the more complex styles, and well....Syd loves her hair this way.

She co-washed her hair while she was in the shower and came to me so I could do the style. I made a small side part in the front and then started just grabbing sections of hair to twist. I detangled each section as I went instead of detangling all the hair before I began. I didn't part out these sections, either. I just grabbed and twisted, working from one side of her head to the other.

To each section, I added a very small amount of Darcy's Botanicals Madagascar Vanilla Styling Cream, followed by a bit of shea butter. I combed it through with a denman and twisted.

We'll probably remove the twists in a few days so Syd can wear a twist out for a day or two. One more reason I love twists...we'll get a bonus style when the twists come out!



  2. Cute! Can't go wrong with two-strand twists!

  3. Hi I just found your blog and your daughter's hair is GAWGEOUS! My daughter is 8 and not a tween yet but I'm sure it will be here before I know it. I want to know how long it took you to twist? And how many? I was surprised when you said they were coming out in a few days! I have a goal to grow Miss K's hair this long. Currently its about shoulder length after it dries and shrinks about 40%. It is super thick and it takes me 3 hours to two strand twist about 70 twist, so they stay in a few weeks! :) This does not include 1 1/2 to detangle and 1 hour to wash/condition. Lord help me as it grows longer

  4. CC, I had no clue how many twists there were, so I just counted them. LOL! There are 33 and it took me just over an hour to do them, detangling each section as I went. They could last longer than just a few days, but because of our busy week, we have to fit hair time in wherever we can. That means she gets 3 days of twists and 2 days of a twist out, then we'll have to restyle again while we have the chance! :)
