First Protective Style of The Year - Crochet With Havana Mambo Twist.


In light of the fact that I'm continuing with my protective styling this year, I decided that after about 2 weeks of deep conditioning and moisturizing my hair while it was out; it was time for it to go back into hiding.

It took me a while to decide what exactly I wanted to do - which is quite strange for me. I'm usually decisive about what I want to do and will plan like 3 - 4 styles ahead of time. For the last couple of days, I lined up Finger comber Hair, Afri Naptural Reggae braid and marley bulk hair on my bed and kept contemplating on what look I was going for.



At the last minute I decided I was going to get Havana Twists by crocheting the Havana Mambo Twist hair ( which wasn't one my initial choices by the way lol) Once that was decided, I chose the shade I wanted (sort of an Ombre Burgundy) and was good to go.




My hair had already been washed and deep conditioned a few days ago and I'd been moisturizing and sealing every day. Seeing as the Havana Mambo Twists are quite thick and I don't want to have too much hair on my head, it was important that the braiding pattern took this into consideration.


So this is the pattern I used (learnt it from an amazing stylist called @beautycanbraid - she's on Instagram and YouTube) and it works pretty well. All in all, I have 10 braids going to the back with 6 of them criss crossed so I can get a few versatile partings.


Can I say I love my hair!!!!!






 While we've installed a few of these in the salon, this is the first time I'll be getting them in myself. Unlike the chunky twists I got sometime last year using the Equal Cuban Twist, these are not uncomfortable at all - they're light and soft and sleeping is not an issue.

Love it!

  1. The exercise of fingernail design has been around for the last 5000 years and can be tracked to the people of Indian who ornamented their claws with henna. Now go toward 1932, when the France organization Revlon launched its first fingernail enhance. It was available in an extensive range of colors and used pigmentation instead of colors. Since the Thirties, fingernail art has come a long way.
