Tales from the Roots: Havana Twist

Havana Twists Protective Style 

As summer approaches all of the Naturals are searching for the next protective style. Protective styling in the summer is very important. It help us deal with the heat, gives our hair a break and allows it to grow. I like many naturals chose to get twists/braids, instead of weaves or wigs. Last year I got Senegalese twists for my vacation but this year I decided to try the Havana twists. The main difference here is the size but the method of twisting is pretty much the same.

Still Chevron Dreamin'




Last year around this time I did a complete over haul of my bedroom. Check out my post Chevron Dreamin for pictures of how my room looked before and after. This year I decided to change things up for spring.


My reasoning for painting my walls gray and white was to give myself room for a lot of change. My walls and carpet are a blank palette, allowing me to change up my look by simply changing out my room accessories (Comforter, paintings, rug etc). This is exactly what I did a few weeks ago.
