Have you heard of Havana Twists? I first saw them online a couple years ago and traced them back to the site Finger Comber which sells Havana braids. Marley hair is the sweet knock off at more than 1/2 price less! I loved the look of the big, chunky twists but never imagined that I could rock it. When I purchased my 5# packs of marley hair, it was intended to do those big, chunky Havana Twists but I wasn’t brave enough. I kept thinking that style would be too much for work.
Fast forward a couple years and your girl is rocking that style like nobody’s business! What doyou think ladies?
And the best part? This was a DIY! That’s right! I did these babies myself. I am so proud of myself right now 🙂
I used roughly 6# packs of marley hair using 4 strands for each twist. I have 33 plaits in total. It took me about 5 hours to finish because of the following factors:
- I co-washed my hair right before so my hair was damp so I had to blow dry each section of hair
- I am using recycled marley hair and had to be separating the braids as I go
- I did them the traditional way (twisting from the roots) and sometimes I didn’t always get it right so had to stop and start again 😀
My marley braids are cut in two so I simply overlapped them in the center to attain the original length. Did I tell you how VERSATILE marley hair is?
I woke up this morning and curled the ends with some flexi rods and dipped them in hot water. I am so in love with my Havana Twists!
Here is a quick video on how to do your own Havana Twists.
