TweetShare11Pin18Stumble1+11Share2 I love big hair. Which is why my latest protective style is so big and full of personality. My natural texture has changed so much over the last decade. It’s becoming harder and harder to create styles that give me the thick, dense look that I prefer. So, on my latest trip to my favorite local beauty supply in Nashville (Kim’s Hair Plus), I came across this super thick twist-out crochet braid style and decided to give it a try. Isn’t it cute? Meet Janet Collection’s – 2X Rod Twist Braid. Janet Collection 2X Rod Twist Crochet Braid | Naturally Stellar I love the texture and natural sheen of this style. Fresh out of the pack the hair gives off a really natural look and feel. It’s bouncy and a bit heavy depending on how many packs you use. For my style I used a little over 3 double packs. That may be a lot for most people, but I prefer a nice thick cover plus I love to camouflage my natural braids. Janet Collection 2X Rod Twist Crochet Braid | Naturally Stellar After a few days of wear, you will likely experience tangles and the individual twists you see here, will lose a bit of definition due to a lot of separating strands. My solution for that is to give the hair a little trim. Cut off loose strands close to the root, about 2 inches away from your knot. Maintainance Tip: If the worn in, bushy look isn’t for you, you can also rod set or roller set the ends of this hair to regain definition. Just boil some water in a sauce pan, remove from heat and dip the ends of your twists in the water for about 30 seconds. Squeeze any excess water out with a towel and allow to air dry or dry on low heat with a hair dryer.

Great tip about boiling water and dipping! Reply Candice S. March 13, 2017 The box braid style would be a bit less time consuming, if that matters to you. But either one sounds like a plan! I think you’re gonna fall in love with this method Ebony. On my next go round, I want to try some loose kinky hair or a straight look. Reply Hey Rock Star!
