Yesterday, I came across this article on how to do two-strand on About.com. Twists aren’t for everybody, but many find them to be a great protective style that can be worn for a week or more. I like to wear them from time to time, but they only lasts about a week for me and I usually have to do some re-twisting in that time. I tend to start my twists like I’m going to do a Senegalese twist to hold them more firmly at the root. Others use braids for the first 1/2 inch or so to help with hold. These are some options not provided in the tutorial that might be helpful to you if you’ve struggled with getting twists to hold at the roots.
I hope to be able to do a two-strand twist set soon (with my recent score, the ORS Lock and Twist Gel … hope that it helps with hold). I want to do a post with different styling options for this versatile style.
Hope that some of you find this tutorial helpful!
