    Hello i recently came across your blog while looking for tips on how to protect my hair from the water while swimming. I am natural but i opt to put in kinky twist to help. Do you have any tips that can help prevent dryness. I will be swimming weekly and want to prevent breakage from happening. Thanks

      Hi there & welcome to my blog! Please check out my post titled “3 Steps To Properly Moisturize Natural Hair” I’d definitely recommend making sure you add a water based product (leave-in Conditioner) followed by an oil to your hair prior to installing your kinky twist paying very close attention to your ends.

    Has anyone had any issues with slipping havana twists? Mine have been in for 3 weeks now and it was my first time ever doing extensions and I had a few slip the first few days and just redid them. I recently did someone else’s hair and feel bad that she had a few slip also. Her hair is shorter than mine and usually straightened so her ends were rather straight after blow drying, even on low. I want to go back and tend to her twists that have slipped down (not completely out) but I don’t want it to happen again. Any suggestions or experience with this issue?

      Hi Angelica. Yes I had the exact same issue. It can be one of 2 things. Either your hair is too fine to hold the twist or you’re not installing them tight enough. For me it was both and I can’t get it tight to save my life, lol. What I have opted to doing are Havana Twist using the Crochet Method. Check out my youtube tutorial explain my comparison to the twisting method vs the crochet method. I really hope this helps!! Thanks for visiting my site! Blessings to you: )

      Havana Twist Using the Crochet Method

    Hello, I love your Havana twists. They look so pretty and they really suit you. I’m thinking of getting them done at a salon in a few weeks, but I’ve never worn them before. I’d like to have the twists be your size; they’re not too big but not too small. I actually want to achieve this exact style lol. So I had a few questions. You wrote above that you used Havana hair from finger comber, but in your video, you said that you used Marley Hair. So I was hoping you could clarify which hair you used as well as how many packs you bought. You also mentioned at the time you did your youtube video that you couldn’t do high buns at first. Were you ever able to wear the high buns after the video? And how long can I wear Havana twists for? I’m sorry for all the questions btw. I’ve never done this before so I don’t want to make any mistakes.

      For my first havana twist I used havana hair but when I began styling them I just used Marley Hair. I can’t seem to find the havana hair at any of the beauty supply stores here. Eventually once the hair begin to loosen I could achieve my bun and let me tell you that buns gives me life. It makes such a statement!! lol I wore them for about a month. Now when I apply them using the crochet method they last a lot longer. Hope this helps
