diy brazilian wool twist

DIY: Brazilian wool twists

Been rocking the natural hair without any protective styling for a while now. I kinda enjoyed it but at the same time was tired of it. I really didn’t know what to do with the hair, so I decided to try something new (to me).


I used 4 bundles for this hairstyle although I purchased waaaay more than 4 bundles. One bundle was 200naira (less than a dollar).

I began by dividing my hair in 2 sections. That’s not really necessary but I wanted to show off a center part. So…

Next, I rolled out the bundle of wool and cut it to my desired length. The bundle rolls out 8 strands at once.

For each parted section of my natural hair, I used 8 strands of the wool. To achieve a greater thickness, you may consider using more strands of wool.Β Using the invisible twist method, I installed the wool.

After each completed twist, I secured the tips with small rubber ties, if not they would have just unraveled. I really wanted to rock the hair with the ties in place but whenever I tried holding the hair in place, a tie would slip off, causing that twist to unravel. So I then decided to ‘light up’ the tips.

I started twisting past 9pm and finished the afternoon of the next day. Well I could have finished earlier than that but amidst my snack breaks, TV breaks and sleep, you can figure out the rest.

Ladies, I must say that I’m quite impressed with the outcome. The Brazilian wool is lightweight (maybe because I used just 4 bundles for this look) but I’m loving it. I hope the hair does not get old too quickly, although I plan on having it for just a couple of weeks, at least until I figure out what to do next with ‘this lil hair of mine’.


With Love,
