Crochet braids have been the trending protective style for over a year. Now, instead of using crochet braids to rock a loose hair look, you can also try your hand at Havana twists. Yes, instead of sitting for 6–7 hours at a time for individual Havana twists, you can install these Havana Mambo twists in under 30 minutes.
So how is it done? You’ll need to buy around 6 packs of Janet Havana Mambo Twists Braid Hair in your desired length. The hair already comes pre-twisted, all you’ll need to do is cornrow your hair as you normally would in preparation for crochet braids. Then you’ll take a latch-hook tool and loop the twists under your braids.
