What Is A Two-Strand Twist?
Two-Strand Twists. The two-strand twist is a popular style for natural hair that is achieved by splitting a section of hair into two and then creating a rope-like appearance by wrapping each section around the other one.

What Are the Benefits?
Convenient. Two strand twists can last a long time! Although this style can be time-consuming to create, they typically stay intact for 2-6 weeks. Washing, conditioning and deep conditioning the style will keep twists looking fresh longer and keep hair healthy.

Protective. Two-strand twists help minimize knots and tangles in your child's hair and is considered a protective style because it minimizes damage. The looser twists minimize your child's discomfort compared to some braiding techniques and put less stress on the hair. Protective, looser twists promote healthy hair, allowing for more hair growth.

Versatile. Two-strand twists are incredibly versatile! The thickness of the twists can range in size from thin micro-twists to thicker chunky-twists and can be done on any length of hair over 2 inches in length. Once the hair is twisted, it can be styled just as loose hair is so your daughter can easily change her hairstyle, whether she wants a ponytail, updo, bun, or even a mohawk!
