We are deep into the winter season and many of you are still protective styling your precious manes. Lately, I’ve noticed more naturals opting to protective style with jumbo Marley, Havana, Senegalese and Mambo twists instead of small twists. I love the trend and prefer larger twists over small ones. However, because of their size, they aren’t as easy to style. You can’t just put the hair into a pony tail holder, but there’s always a way around every hair dilemma. These tutorials prove that you can still create a plethora of beautiful styles with larger than usual twists.
