Impromtu Protective Style : Chunky Kinky Twists

Chuky Kinky Twists

It was night time, and the plan was to retwist my hair using Beautè Organics Styling Butter. But, that did not go as plan. Yesterday, I did some crotchet braids and cornrows on my friend's hair. I'm practicing my skill at crotchet braiding. I fell in love with the extension hair she got. It was so soft and light.

So... I decided to install chunky kinky twists. It took me about 2 hours to complete the twist and the fishtail braid.

I used the invisible parting method to install the twists. Click here to watch.

I used 2 and a half bags of "Dios Fine fiber Mali Twist Braid". I used 2 colors F1B/30 and 1.

Process

I alternated between the two different color to give it a different look.
 
 
One reason why I do not wear extensions a lot is because my scalp is quite tender and I find that the styles pull too much on the edges and scalp. For this style, I did not make the roots tight.
 
My plan is to wear this style for at least 2 weeks and at most 4 weeks.

Love That Sticks - KSBJ Radio - Vlog

Love that sticks KSBJ Radio
"All month long we’re talking about unconditional love. God’s love is unconditional and nothing can separate us from His love – now that’s the kind of LOVE THAT STICKS! He loves us so much that He sent his son to die for us – so let’s share this good news with our community. 1 John 4:9-11 “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” Help us blanket the City of Houston with Love That Sticks!" ~ KSBJ Radio

Watch as we put words to action. Find out where we stuck our love notes:

Texan Day FishTail Braids on Natural Hair



If anyone told me a year ago that doing fishtail braids is so much easier than doing regular braids, I will say, "NA LIE!!".  But to tell you the truth, it is.

Here is why I believe so. Can you believe that while Big Sis was waiting for the school bus, which was so late, she learnt how to do a fishtail braid on Pinkie Pie of My Little Pony.



For Lil Sis's style, we did a small cornrow, which is actually a bang, and then sectioned the rest of her hair into 4 parts. Twisted each part into two to three chunky twists and the fishtail braided everything into a side ponytail.

Products Used:
Moisturized with Rose water and Glycerin, SheaMoisture Curl and Style Milk and my DIY Peppermint Flaxseed Gel (recipe on Youtube channel).
