|6 months natural, Two Strand Twists!|
Two Strand Twists are popularly worn by many naturals and they do protect the hair to an extent. However, if the ends are not taken care of, the result could be unnecessary breakage.
Before I lay down and put my silk sleeping cap on (and during the day when I am resting at home), I stretch my twists either by using goody bobby pins or flat-twisting them. The ends tend not to knot up when I do this. Stretching really keeps knots at bay. Knots can easily result into unnecessary breakage.
