Hey babes. Today I wanted to share a quick hairstyle I did on my daughter after we colored her hair with the Psychedelic Sunset using the ColorPrinting Panel Art method……and her color gradually faded to the perfect marbled Tourmaline Blue. Then, after obsessing on the beauty of her hair and the Tourmaline Mineral Stone for a while, I went down the rabbit hole of reading up on tourmaline health benefits.

This hairstyle was very easy to do, once her hair had been thoroughly crimped ( Yes, I’m still obsessed with my Mini Crimper.) I think that these twists would work really well in curly/kinky textured hair with a lot of poof to it.
Here is how we got these super cool and organic looking hairstyle.
Part the hair down the middle. Take all the hair from one side of the part, and begin a twist on the side of the head, twisting backwards and guiding the twist towards the center part in back. (Here for twisting clarity)
Once all the hair from that side is twisted in, continue twisting to the ends of the hair. Pull the twist across the part to the other side, and use a large bobby pin to pin the ends to the head securely. Add more pins if needed……We only needed one pin for each side due to the fact that her hair had so much texture from the crimping that it wanted to stay wherever I put it!
Repeat the same steps on the other side, twisting the ends of the first twist into the second twist as you work your way back. Pull the ends of the 2nd twist across to the other side, tucking the ends under your first twist to hide them. Pin this twist into place.
Voila! Add more pins if needed to secure your twists.
Now channel the soothing and grounding watery qualities of the tourmaline mineral as you glide through your day with your Tourmaline Twists.
