Hey ladies! It’s Cass from cassandrebeccai.com. I really wanted to show you guys a really quick tutorial of how I got these Marley twists. I love them. They are not Marley twists. They are faux locs. They basically have the look of locs.
What You’ll Need
I did them using this kind of hair. Everybody asks me what kind of Marley hair, the brand I use. Ladies, I’m going to be real with you. I just go to the store and pick up whatever they have. Literally, this was the only brand they had and I just picked it up. It’s called Sepia, do you see that?
It’s called Sepia and it was $5.99, “Afro Braid Hair,” that’s what it’s called and it’s in the color 2 which I feel it matches my color the most.
You will need literally like thirteen packs of these if you want them these long. I used these for the Marley twists that I did before at my hair and the whole style, I would probably say, takes about maybe 15 hours. So, I didn’t do it all in one sitting. In fact, I had the Marley twists in for 4 or 5 weeks before I wrapped them and during the 4 or 5 weeks, I was moisturizing them in the method that I’ve shown you guys and I also wash them. I have a twist here that you guys will be able to see me do what I do.
Another thing that you’re going to need is some moisturizer. Of course, my favorite one is Oatmilk ‘N’ Honey. It’s a leave-on conditioner. And, you’re also going to need a sealer because what happens is that when you do style like this, your hair cannot be dry like this because it becomes a little harder to moisturize your hair when it’s wrapped like this. It’s a great protective style but, you can’t do it on your naked dry hair. It’s not going to be good.
I also bought a lighter. You’re going to need this to seal the ends and I’ll show you how I got that, okay.
Oh, shout out to my girlfriend Judy who has amazing down-your-back locs like do you see this? Her locs literally come down like in the middle of her back here. They’re gorgeous and I was just inspired to do them just as slim as hers. Hers are real but, you know. I love hers. Judy, I love your hair and I love you.
So, what I’m doing right now is actually putting moisturizer on my hair and listen, be very generous, okay? Because I’m not going to see my real hair for a while. I’m going to make this style last, okay. It took me about 10 hours to wrap this so, you better believe, this is going to be in my hair for a while, okay.
