Turbans and Twists!

Hey y’all! I put some twists in on Sunday (after a Deep Conditioning Treatment) using a sample packet of Aveeno Conditioner and sealing with Castor Oil. It’s my first time using both products, so I’ll have to wait a few more days to see how my hair does so that I can properly assess how I feel about them.
Turbans and Twists!
In the spirit of low-manipulation styling for the colder weather, I decided to rock style inspired by YouTuber Chescalocs. I parted my twists on the side and secured the left section back (towards the center of my head) and the other downwards and to the side (to create a side bang).

I took a scarf, folded it in half, and placed the base of it at the nape of my neck (so that the point was right in the middle of my forehead). I crossed the ends over one another to make a knot, and tucked the remaining fabric underneath itself.

This is a quick and easy way to protect your hair from the cold. If you aren’t feeling that daring (or just aren’t feeling the ‘turban trend,’ you can try a headband look with a scarf instead. Pair with some fun earrings to spice it up. That’s it!

Stay fabulous!

Do you experiment with wraps and turbans?

    I like a lot – I have a couple silk scarfs I haven't found use for yet – now viewing this video I will rock the turban look with my high pony – using the last method of the video.

    Thanks – great tutorial.

    I am all about head wraps. I never tried this look tho. Very cute! I tell ya, seeing chescalocs videos again may me miss my long locs … : sigh: …ok, I'm over it lol

    I do wear head wraps but mine are usually large, kind of like Marge Simpson. LOL. I like them, I need to experiment with other ways of wearing them though.

    I absolutely love the fabric that Jamila uses for her wrap/turban. I've experienced with head wraps, but i only know two ways–the one with the big twist in the back where you wrap it around itself and the one where you actually wrap the twists around you head -__- terrible explanation, i know! Here's a picture

    Very cute Jamila! I've always loved your style !! I might have to steal the turban style. I love headwraps already so this look will fit right in. Have a great winter break!

    I like how turbans look on others i just don't see myself rockin' one… i'd probably try with a nice scarf though… then i'd have to have the right outfit and thats a whole other conversation lol (=
