Twist/heat damage

Post by mamieallen50 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 6:30 pm

I’m currently trying to transition from heat damage on my natural hair. I currently have box braids but once I remove them I would like to rock a twist out. However in the past I always had to retwist my hair every night. My hair is not long enough for pineapple. Any other suggestions?

If you wear a twist style for at least a week you will not have to re-twist so often. See this post: ... y-forever/

To make sure your ends look consistent with the rest of your hair I would twist and roll your ends or do bantu knots.
