Why Mini Twists Promote Healthy Hair Growth?
Two Strand Twists
By Chinwe of Hair and Health. Mini twists are essentially tiny twists, much smaller than the diameter of a pencil. In some cases, mini twists are so small that the hair may appear loose rather than twisted. Mini twists last longer — anywhere from three to six weeks — than larger twists. Because they are so small, they tend not to frizz and age as quickly.
Two strand twists are a popular natural hair style for some reasons. This style can be undone to create another favorite style, the twist-out. Two-strand twists are considered a protective style in the natural hair community as they can help minimize hair damage and therefore promote hair growth. Two-strand twists can range in size from minuscule micro two strand twists, more often called mini twists, unless done with extensions, to medium to large two strand twists typically referred to as chunky twists. Flat twists are a type of two-strand twists that stay anchored to the scalp. The same two sections and twisting motion is applied, but after each twist of the sections, a little more hair is added to one of the sections before twisting again. This keeps the twist flat on the scalp and is quite similar in technique to doing a dutch braid , but with two sections instead of three.

Stretching is great because after I braid my hair up one night I can choose another night to be lazy and not have to worry about shrinkage. External image. In this picture, it just the same as the two above except just a front view of my fro.
