This is a finished two strand twist hairstyle. It was created on freshly washed and conditioned natural hair without extensions.

Before beginning to twist, damp hair was prepped with Carol's Daughter Khoret Amen Hair Oil and allowed to air dry about 90%. A common question newbies have is "Should you twist on wet or dry hair?" The answer is really up to you and may require experimentation on wet, damp, nearly dry and completely dry hair. You'll find that you get various results depending on what you start with.
