My Attempt at Mini Twists

I’m not the most adventurous with my hair. Normally, I find something that works and stick to it. Mini twists have been on my mind for a bit now. I decided to try them recently. I always struggled with how twists look on me because my hair isn’t very dense. This lack of density makes the twists look a bit scanty. I wasn’t expecting bomb twists but it was worth a try. In fact, I almost called this post ‘The struggle’ or something like that. In hindsight, the style wasn’t too bad.

Thankfully, I was encouraged along the way. 🙂

I did them on clean, dry, and stretched hair. My hair was stretched using braids. I also used a moisturizer before twisting. It took a LONG time to finish. I was doing it off and on for most of the day. I wasn’t really a fan of how they turned out mainly because of my ends. I decided to keep them in and just pin them up.

The style is a great low manipulation style. I kept my hands out of my hair for the most part. My hair was also moisturized. I really neglected it and it still felt pretty good. My scalp, on the other hand, was NOT feeling it. It was pretty itchy. I think it was due to a conditioner that I used.Plus, I did not wash my hair in time. I normally wash once a week. This time, I pushed it to almost two weeks. 😯

There was some difficulty twisting the back parts because I kept switching direction.  Next time, I need to be mindful while twisting. Looking at the twists, I know they will look so much better without the relaxed ends. I still have quite a bit left in some sections.  I may try it again before I cut off the relaxed ends.
