I know people have been expecting a post on this Mambo Havana Twist Crochet Hair for some time, but I had to wear the hair for a bit to get my feel and take on the style. If you haven't already guessed it by now, I am in L - O - V - E with this hair! I've gotten so many compliments on the style, and people even mistake it for my natural hair. The hair was lovingly installed by my friend Tiffany Tonge of Studio by TiTo
So, I'm going to review the hair so far and let you guys know all about the install, how I've been maintaining it and how i feel about it so far.
Firstly, here's a video showing how to install the hair if you plan on doing the style by yourself. The Hair is not available in Antigua yet, and can be bought online here. Or if that route is too long, Just Call Tiffany to have it done :)
I have had these twists in for 3 weeks now and they still look as good as they did when i got them done initially. Of course I have to do a bit of maintenance here and there, but it's nothing that I Can't really handle.
Another thing that I like about this style is that my hair is fully protected. All of my hair is neatly corn-rowed and the twists are installed using a crochet needle.
This has many benefits:
- The hair can be untwisted to give the appearance of natural hair, while fully protecting your hair.
- Your Hairline is preserved as your hair is not pulled in to achieve the style. This is ample time to do a castor oil treatment to get your hair back into shape and restore it to health.
- Because your hair is separated and sectioned, this makes it easier for your scalp to be moisturized which is better for the overall health of your actual hair underneath.
- Most Importantly, You Don't Have to worry about how to style your hair :)
I am really loving this hair, and I feel that Tiffany did a great job. Below I've Left a video i found on YouTube which shows how to maintain the hair. It just involves cutting strays with a scissor, but you know ... visual aids usually help more :)
