Step 1 of a rope twist tutorial

I bet you didn't know that, besides the regular method of twisting, there is another way to twist your hair called rope twisting.

It's really simple and easy, yet so much better than simply regularly twisting your coils. If you haven't already been clued in on this method, here's a simple how-to that will have you rope twisting like a pro in no time.

Step 1

    • First, section off a small piece of hair like you would if you were twisting normally and secure the rest of your hair so that it doesn't get in the way.
    • Split that section into two equal pieces.
    • With one hand, twirl one section using your index finger and do the same to the other piece in the other hand and hold the sections securely to ensure that they do not unwind.

Yes! I recently tried this method for the second time in 2 years, and it gives more stretch and your hair really does look like ropes. See the difference here:
Thanks, I never really understood the difference or purpose. I will try this.
