Marley Twists: Protective Style *Video

 Watch Marley Twists: Protective Style Video

Can I be real honest with you right now?

I know it’s in the blood of most naturals to be super hard core about the rules of being natural, but that’s not me AT ALL.

I can appreciate a beautiful press, a well done weave and some oh so fabulous braid/twist extensions (especially cuz they make for EXCELLENT protective styles).

With that said, I couldn’t help but try this sweet hairstyle using a lil faux hair help ;)

Check out the video below to find out how I got these HOT down-to-my-waist marley/havanna twists.

  

This hairstyle took me a few hours to do, but they were so easy!

In this video I show you my technique (which I literally just came up with like last week!) to achieve a beautifully natural looking extensions.

I bought this hair at my local beauty supply store but you can also find it here.

How would you tweak  this hairstyle to suit your tastes?

  13. LOVE THESE TWISTS!!! i want to try them out but wanted to know if this style is done on wet or dry hair? I typically style my hair wet because i don’t have a lot of free time with a little one running around :) Thanks for the tutorial and any help you can give.

    Reply
    • hey Sassy! This style was done on my dry hair. I’ve never done it on wet hair- but you should try it and pls do tell me how it works out. Thanks for commenting! :)

  14. How many twist did you do? I love them.

    Reply
    • Hey lady. You know, I dont know how many twists I have in but it would probably be the equivalent of the amount of hair in one pack of marley hair. Hope that helps!

      Reply
  15. I am definitely trying this once i take out my braids!!! thankd a lot!!!

    Reply
  16. Doing these today!

  17. DO, DO, DO! Send me pics! BTW: got a tip from one awesome lady- TheVGinia- that the marley hair by janetcollection is off the chain. It’s apparently way more true to touch then the one I use. You should give it a go!

  19. This is cute. How long did it take you to complete this style? How many twist did you end up with?

    Reply
  20. thanks! It took about 3 hours or less. I actually don’t know how many twists I ended up with.

    Reply
  21. thank you!

  22. oh my gosh… i know i can handle this! this looks so easy to do and i like that im doing it on my own so i can control how tight my hair is manipulated and its cheaper than paying someone… im sooo excited to do this. im going to share this video with everyone!!!

    thanks so much for sharing your style and techniques with the video.

    Reply
    • I know- it’s pretty simple right?! Glad you got something valuable from it!

      Reply
  23. Cassandre, this style is great, thanks for the video! I did this style and everyone thought it was my real hair! Curling the ends made it really cute. I find this hair to be SUPER tangly after about a week or so- was it the same for you?

    Reply
  24. So do you continue to do the twisting motion that you did at the beginning of the braid?

    Reply
  25. Amazing! I’ve NEVER seen this technique before, but I can see that it eliminates that “start of braid/twist” look that I’ve grown to hate. Extremely natural looking. Beautiful job sista!!!

    Reply
  26. Just subscribed! Been looking for a protective style this fall. There’s plenty info I can use.

    Reply
  27. Thanks a lot hon. I love wearing them- their so natural looking and so protective. You must give it a go!

    Reply
  28. Kind of- but it’s less important as you go down the strand. You’ll see what I mean once you try it.

    Reply
  29. Thanks sweets! yes I do find that to be true; it’s so cheap I think that’s why it’s so tangly. Personally, I don’t mind, but if you do- def search out for a higher quality hair. I think I might do the same next time I redo my twists.

    Reply
  30. Have you had any issues with your slipping out? Because I also agree with (not liking the braid/twist technique) I knew there had to be a better way.
    I have plenty hair on my head so redoing a whole head of twisted hair would be tedious.

    Reply
  31. how many twists did you do? i like the chunky look and don’t want a lot of twists

    Reply
  32. May you please do a tutorial step by step with how you did it… parting and everything. I like that its not so many like some women on YouTube have. It’s looks really natural on you!!

  40. Thanks for sharing! I was so inspired that I attempted this style Sunday! It was easier than I thought and took less time than I thought. I have received lots of compliments. I love that it looks natural even though I did mine long.

    • This is soo the kind of comment that really gets me cheesing from ear to ear! So happy to hear that it was successful for you! thanks for leaving the comment Erica. Cheers!

  41. How cute! I’ve never seen this style before. Its a fun looking style. I’m subbing!

    Reply
  42. :D thanks girl!

    Reply
  43. I’ve always loved this style and even though my stylist has done it on me, I could not get it right! But you made it look so easy, I’m going to give it another shot. Do you find the ones in the back lay weird because of twisting it yourself? And what about the parts? Is it in a “bricklayer” pattern for maximum coverage? Can’t wait to try it again!

    Reply
    • Hey Aundrea! Yes, this style is beautiful! I don’t have any problems with twists laying funny because I twist them myself. My parts are more or less lay in a “this feels right” pattern:)- with no real pattern at all-just me finger separating the hair for a box that feels about 1″ thick (or a little bigger. It seems to always come out very nice for me. Hope this helps.

      Reply
  44. Okay, you inspired me…. I’ve tried these several times before but I’d never been successful. Until tonight. I DID IT!!! Mind you, I ran out of synthetic hair at the end so some of the parts are HUGE, but I did a passable and a very, shall we say, organic job. I’ll have to run out and get more hair since what I had was just some left over. But thank YOU for inspiring me enough to try it again, because I’d all but given up. I’m looking forward to getting better at it– I now have an extremely cost-effective protective style. Yaaaaay me!

    Reply
  45. I’m a new subbie and I tried this I thought this would be a great idea since I’m going in for a Scheduled C-section in a couple of weeks. Well, I guess I’ll have to keep trying because the braid kept unraveling. Is there anything else I can do to keep this from happening. I am so disappointed because I thought I had found the perfect protective style. Help!!!!

  51. I’m sorry shellyshelle37! i have no idea why it’s unraveling. Between the kink in my hair and the kink in the marley hair, I have not had that issue. Are you straightening your hair before you do it?

    Reply
  52. No, I haven’t straightened my hair. I’m completely natural with 4b/4c hair and I still haven’t figured it out :-(. Thanks for replying back.

    Reply
  53. how long could you keep that style in.

    Reply
  54. OMG, i DIED.
    I can’t wait to do this hairstyle you just don’t know! Thanks for sharing with us :X !

    Reply
  55. Do you set the hair in hot water once you’ve finished braiding/twisting? That should stop it from unravelling.

    Reply
  56. @tigereye- Cass didn’t do that so I didn’t think it was necessary. Don’t know if I’ll have time before I labor on Friday. I may have to try again at another time :-(

  65. I think these are adorable. I have been looking for a protective style that will help with length retention for my 6 year old. Would this style work well with on a child? I worry about how extensions would affect my daughter’s hair, I’ve never had them and have no clue. :-/

    Reply
  66. Thank you

    Reply
  67. Very cute I think I’ll try this style, thanks for sharing!

    Reply
  68. Beautiful outcome! I just have one question when you twist both strands of your hair at the beginning to loc the fake hair in place do you have to continue to twist both strands of your hair as you go along or do you just regular twist the hair after that? I hope someone understands what I mean, lol and can help answer this for me.
    Oh and also how long does this style usually last?

    Reply
  69. hey Zoeynakya! I twist both strands as I go on. The style last me two weeks or more. I usually retwist the edges so that it looks new. Hope that helps!

    Reply
  70. I would go the route of braiding or twisting her own hair to protect it until she’s a little older. But if I were to do them on a child I would 1) wash the extensions in warm water and shampoo to take off any irritating chemicals on the hair. 2) I would use higher quality hair so it doesn’t cause irritation or discomfort for the child and 3) I would not have them reach past her shoulders. It’s safer for little children who like to play to have shorter hair.

    Reply
  71. hey lady. I used two.

    Reply
  72. I love this style! looks great on you!
    Can I use just one piece instead of two as I want smaller twists that can last about 3 – 4 weeks. So my sections will be smaller that yours (say about 4 or 5 for each 1 of yours). Will two packs still be enough? This looks like an excellent transitioning style for me and a break from kinky twists!

    Reply
  73. Thanks for the advice. I think I am going to keep twisting her hair up. She’s luke warm about the twisting, but I still think it’s too soon to mess in her hair too much! I do, however, love the twists and I am really thinking of trying them out on myself :-)

    Reply
  74. I put these in and they look great! Thanks!

  75. *squeal* I love this look!!! I have tried almost every style every … literally … except this once. I am def going to try this style. When I do I’ll post it on my blog and link this video.

    Reply
  76. Love the way ur hair came out! Quick question. Did the twits slip at the roots at all later down the line? And why did u twist from the root instead of braiding a little bit and then twist the rest? just asking which way would be better or it doesn’t really matter?

    Reply
  77. Beautiful style! How soft was the hair? I had these twists last winter and the hair was like BRILLO! It totally messed up my natural hair and made me break out :(

    Reply
  78. WELP that’s it! I’ve found my hairstyle for when I go to the Philippines in January THANK YA!

    Reply
  79. i know what you mean . . . basically you’re asking if its the same as the senegelese twists method where you have to twist the two individual strands as you twist them together (to make one twist) the entire time – or do you just do that at the beginng to start the twist lol I have the same question

    Reply
  80. Yes, exactly, lol. And she answered my question and said yes she does do it like how you would sengalease twist. Its too complicated for me I’d never be able to do it so I’m looking into havana twist. They both have that natural look that I love but it seems the havana twist are easier to do. Just something to look into for anyone who sees this as a lil too hard to do.

  84. did you blow dry your hair 1st?

  85. Hi ree- no I didn’t blow dry my hair. My hair stretches from the twists I do after I wash it. Check out my hair regimen video for more detailS. Let me know after you watch the video, where you might need some clarification. Take care

  86. ree- nah it’s not soft.

  88. yes!!

  89. Hey hon- it wasn’t soft. I say go to the store and feel out the best ones for you. Hope that helps!

    Reply
  90. hey simplycurlyful! No it didn’t slip from the root- but I imagine that the fact that my own hair is half the length of the marley hair helps for slipping not to happen since the marley hair has a good grip on my own hair. The technique I use helps me to achieve the most natural “looks like its growing straight out of you head” look.

    Reply
  91. Cocoa- you’re too cute! haha! thanks so much for the compliments. I know this style will look lovely on you.

  92. weeks- 2, 3, 4. I redo the front if I feel they’re beginning to look fuzzy.

  94. HELP!!! First I want to tell you I love your hair so I’m trying to put marley twist in my hair for the 1st time. I did not blow dry or straighten my hair but it keeps unraveling at the ends of the twist. I’m using shea butter twist and lock get which is light weight. Do you think I should use something heavier on the marley hair om the ends? Should I use REAL gel?

    Reply
  95. Love it, gonna try it this week

    Reply
  96. Hey Ree! maybe real gel will help you. All I can say is experiment!

  158. Hi! I’m thinking of doing this style for vacation. But, I’m concerned about the twists being too heavy when I get wet from getting in the pool or ocean. Do you notice the twists are very heavy when they are wet? Have you noticed they slip a lot after they are wet? I don’t want to get 3 days into my vacation and twists are slipping out of my head or my neck hurts from heavy twists!

    Thanks!!

    Reply
    • Hi Amber! Yes they are heavy when wet, but they are not heavy at all when dry. No they do not slip out for me. All I can say is that the only way you’ll know if they work for you is by trying it out on just a part of your head and testing it out. Hope that helps!

      Reply
  159. Hey Cass!! Great tutorial!!! I tried and I love them!!! I actually did them on my wet, freshly washed hair. The install was super easy!!! Thanks so much for such an awesome tut!

  165. approx how many twists is that? :o love your hair btw =]

  166. Yeah definitely. You can cut the hair prior to installing for your desired length. To make the braid thicker, combine 2-3 hair pieces before twisting them in.

  171. Just discovering your site. LOVE IT. I am experiencing some heat damage and am going to give my hair a break from the heat possibly forever if I can get some good cute styles under my belt. Anyway, I went out and bought some hair but now I am hearing that the Toyokalon hair can break off my hair even if I maintain moisture, don’t leave them in too long etc. Have you had any bad experiences with this synthetic hair? I guess you wouldn’t have posted this vid if you did. But, have you heard anything like this about this hair causing breakage? I’m so nervous because I’m already dealing with some damage now.

    Reply
    • hey hon! I say if the fear overwhelms you- don’t do it! I have a strong moisturizing regimen while my hair is in extensions (which I share in this post). If your hair is in a state of constant breakage right now I recommend treating your hair with a weekly deep conditioning masque/conditioner and amping up the frequency of moisturization to twice a day. If you choose to put in extensions, you might opt for real human hair since it is naturally less drying to hair. If that is not an option for you then do not style your hair this way until you feel your hair is strong/moisturized enough to deal with any potential side effects.

  174. How did you seal the ends of your twists?

  175. I LOVE THIS!!! I cannot braid for the life of me, but I’m good at twisting and will definitely be trying this out. You make it look so simple… Can I ask, do you have a certain way you part/section your hair when doing the twists? (Not sure if anyone already asked… :) )

  178. Hello, I am a new subscriber and have really enjoyed your videos. I am trying to do this style from your video but smaller twist and I am having trouble installing it. When I think I have the hair in place so it does fall out and starts to slide out once I start twisting. Is there anyway you can advise me as to what I may be doing wrong? Any assistance would be great!

  183. How did you do the back? With a mirror? Better yet how would advise a novice in doing this style (the back portion of their hair)?

    Reply
    • hey Becky! It doesn’t seem like it but I did this style for the first time on this video so I was a novice too! I don’t have any particular tips except don’t be too concerned with making straight parts. If straight parts are important to you use a mirror (as you suggested) or get someone else to style the back for you. Hope it works out!

  196. I found that my marley hair kept slipping out and once I got it to stay it had lumps and stuff making it a really odd shaped twist. Help!

    Reply
  197. at 3:40 in the video I show that I twist and roll my hair with the faux hair even as I continue down doing the tiwst. That is the method I use to keep my hair from not slipping. I encourage you to keep trying it until you get the hang of it since I know plenty of women have to practice before getting it right, including myself.

  213. I enjoyed your video it was very helpful and to the point. Most videos so self centered I almost dislike watching them but you are informative, beautifully natural, and have the personality&smile to match. That’s confidence. I found a few others I can say the same about.

  216. how do you add more hair to make a longer twist?

  217. I don;t know since I have not done that here. The hair I purchased was already this long. Refer to the website for a link to the hair used.

  218. How did you dry your hair before adding the extensions?

    Reply
  219. Instead of halving the marley hair you can pull the two pieces, so that less of the two marley piece overlap that way the hair is longer: depending on the length you want it should mean that only 3/4 or 1/4 of the half is actually overlapping. You would probably need to use more hair to retain the thickness. (I hope this makes sense).

  220. I’m beginning my natural journey, and I absolutely love your videos. Thank you for being such a beautiful inspiration. :)

  221. What kind of hair did you use?

    Reply
  222. You have to match the pieces that you apply to your hair uneven. You see at 2:45 how she makes sure they 2 pieces are even, don’t do that. But instead of using two pieces you would use 4 (so you can still get the thickness). This is how I made mine longer.

  223. I tried this style, I got the hair to attach fine but the twists were full of flyaways. Any tips to prevent that?

  224. I love this!!!!! This should help me out a lot! Thank you gorgeous!!!

  225. I like your voice

    Reply
  226. to make the hair longer and thicker you will need four pieces. puff it out and place two in each had. twist the ends together and then continue as you would a regular marley braid. That is how I did mines

  227. There’s something about your voice and style that makes you so swagged out.

  233. Hi Cass!

    I just recently put in my own Marley Twists based off your video, and so love them! My only problem with them is that the roots get loose, and so I keep having to redo them. Any advice on how to keep them tight?

    Thanks!

    Reply
    • Hi Kristen! Why don’t you try braiding it at the root? That would help.
