Havana twists or Kinky Twists?
When my braids come out, I wanted to try something new and different than yarn braids. My issue is which of the various kinds of braids/twists should I commit to? I've narrowed it down to the following two kinds:
Havana Twists or Kinky Twists?
Has anyone had either one and loved them? Hated them? I've seen them installed on Youtube and seem easy enough to do on your own unless you know someone who can do it for a small fee or even free (which I do, ironically).
I've never heard of havana twists, but I did have kinky twists years ago and LOVED them. I got a lot of compliments. I mixed in 2 colors and it really popped. The only regret I have is that I went to an African braiding salon to get them done, and the last time they put them in, they pulled my hair too tight and it actually came out from the roots!!
I'll try to find and post an old photo.
See, I know all about African braiding salons being too rough with hair too -- when I had micros, they pulled my hair so tight I had a headache for nearly a week. I understand it helps let the style last longer but geez, can I have hair at the end of this process? If you can find that photo, it would be great! I would like to use a dark black on the bottom half of my head and then a lighter shade of brown for the top or perhaps just have them mixed around on my head.
Havana Twists are new and made with a special kind of hair from fingercomber.com. It costs $13 for each package of hair, and they're speaking about ordering 7 packets for a thick head! I don't have that type of money! LOL! So I am completely learning towards just regular kinky twists now.
I found a photo. . .
Let me know what you think. . .
I'm pretty sure you could use some hair at the BSS to do Havana Twists. I'm no hair expert, so do your research. I definitely like the look of the Havana Twists.
I like the Havana Twists also. Actually they both are similar; but I just have a bias towards fuller twists. Both styles would look good on you.
I'm sure Havana Twists are quicker to install too.
