How to Twist Your Natural Hair Without it Locking

A lot of people want the look of locs without actually having to loc their hair.  A great way to accomplish this look is by twisting/2 strand twisting your hair.  Another great thing about the 2 strand twist is that, when you take them out you can wear your hair in a crinkled or spiraled style until you are ready to wash the style out completely.

Many locticians like myself know how to to this temporary style for you, but if you prefer a DIY (do it yourself) method, the article below gives some really good instructions on how to do so.  I don’t like how they refer to hair locking as a “threat”  and  I would avoid using the gel the they suggest and use a moisturizing hair butter instead.  But overall a good article.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Peace 🙂
