Pipe Cleaner Curls


Okay, I saw this photo a while ago (like, last year) in the gallery on NaturallyCurly.com. Then, I located this YouTube video of her talking about how she achieved the style and came across it again last week when I was looking for loc styles in anticipation of my puffy twists. Anywho, I just LOVE this look! This pic doesn’t do it justice, so watch the video to get a real good look at the style. I think I might try this at some point, when my twists are on their last leg. I think it’s sooo pretty? The coppery red twists really set it off and add to the dimensional effect. I have a few henna red highlights showing through my twists, but nothing like this. Regardless, I still think that it might look really pretty.  What do you think? Have any of you ever tried pipe cleaner curls on afro or kinky twists?

    • Jai, you used the pipe cleaners, but set your twists damp? Did you sit under a dryer? Just wondering. I won’t be doing this for a while though. Maybe in another month or so.


  1. I used them twice, and they came out really nice. You can sit under the dryer if you want, or just sleep in them overnight, surprisingly quite well. My hair lasted for 2wks, and they still looked good.

    I did mine after watching Prettydimples01 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgrQROQVX5o and also Barbaydian261 has locs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16HRmUkKE9I&feature=related. Both of these will help your hair to come out looking really great.
