1. Get the tools you need
First of all, you need a comb, a spray bottle. As you know, a spray bottle is essential in any aspect of having natural hair, and they're no exception when it comes to mini twists. You'll need a spray bottle like this to lightly spray your hair with water to prevent it from drying out. Next is the need for leave-in conditioner and hair oil. It is an important product when making mini twists.
2. Wash and condition your hair thoroughly
It's best to start with mini twists in freshly washed hair. This will make it easier to work with your hair and make the twist last longer without a large build-up of product. Then, treat your freshly washed hair with a moisturizing conditioner. Before twisting your hair, the more moisturized your hair, the better.
3. Brush your hair
Use a wide-toothed comb or your fingers to gently remove tangles from your hair. To minimize pain and manual breakage, use a slippery hair loss agent. Once your hair is clean and combed, it's time to stretch. When your hair is elongated, it will be easier to manipulate.
4. Part your hair
Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, divide it into four to six sections, depending on how thick your hair is. You should be able to hold each part in one hand. Clip the other parts you don't do with segmental clips. This keeps things tidy and gives you space to focus on the current part.
5. Start making mini twists
Select the first section of hair, apply some conditioner, and divide it into two tufts. Twist from the roots to the ends of your hair. You need to use a wiggle and pull motion so that your mini twist doesn't unravel at the root. After that, wrap your fingers around the ends of your hair or twirl them around your fingers so they stay in place.
6. Repeat the steps above
Make sure to twist your hair in a downward fashion. Repeat the above steps. Apply all the procedures to the other sections and sub-sections. Soon, you'll have a whole head of mini twist. Remember, your patience is the only determinant of how small your mini twist is. Some mini twists are so small that it is hard to tell from a distance that they are mini twists.
On average, it takes between 2 hours and 2 days to complete the mini twist. If you want a bigger twist and it's short, you may only need to set aside a few hours for the twist. On the other hand, if you have long hair and want a mini twist of ten centimeters, then you may have to do your hair for a few days.
