To create this look, start by co-washing
you hair. You may like to try Jane Carter
Nutrient Replenishing Solution, or Afrigenix
Berrilicious Smoothie. If you have the
time, allow your hair to air dry, and apply
your favorite oil. If you’re short on time,
proceed to blow dry.

1. Part your hair in 4 sections, and clip to

2. Use your comb to create a part that is
approximately one inch wide and one inch

3. If you don’t want your parts to be
pronounced, don’t spend too much time on
defining your parts.

4. Divide the parted section into two.

5. Separate a handful of the HAVANA
TWIST HAIR (tm), use 6 strips to achieve
the size pictured.

6. Fold the HAVANA TWIST HAIR (tm) in
half, and place it as pictured in picture
number 6.

7. Beginning on the side closest to your
hairline, twist the HAVANA TWIST HAIR
(tm) in with your own natural hair, clockwise.

8. Do the same with the other half.

9. Now, begin to cross the twisted
sections over each other in a
counter-clockwise direction.

10. Repeat this crossing over, down the
whole length of the twist.

11. Twist by crossing over, until you
reach the end of the twist.

Repeat this step throughout the remainder
of your head.

12.-13. Roll small squares of aluminum foil
into mini rod shapes.

14. Use the mini rods as you would a
flexirod, on the end of each twist.

15. Very carefully (and at your own
discretion, and risk) dip the ends of the
hair in very, very hot water. You may
want to have someone help you with this

16. Allow the hair to cool off completely
before gently removing the foil rods. Clip
any stray ends.

My current protective are yarn braids/genie locs

I’m doing a challenge!


I am pretty much not going to see my hair for a whole year.

I will only see it for about a couple days at a time when retouching the genie locs.

MEANWHILE I will be doing the following:

My Fall Protective style: Giant yarn braid/genie locs


It took me six hours to do.
It took two 1pound balls of yarn.
Each braid consists of twenty strands, which makes forty when you bend it in half.
It’s kinda heavy.
But I love it. I feel like a queen. No regrets.

Love it

This is a completely different kind of post than usual, but I recently shattered my LG Optimus G screen and haven’t been able to use it at all. (Boooo!) I wanted to be able to save my pictures and didn’t want to send my phone to be repaired full of sexts. (Kidding…mostly.) After tons of research…
