The Mohawk Twist

Sharon Kasanda

I am so rushed for time that I can hardly spend hours experimenting in my hair to create long lasting protective hairstyles, this was one I stumbled upon accidentally and ended up keeping for the whole week at work, I hardly touched my hair the whole week, I simply slept with a satin scarf, smoothed down the edges and sprayed it with oil, water or both every day.


What you need:

Prep time: 30 minutes

Oil sheen or a mix of Afrorage pure oil blend and water

3-4 ponytail holders

Bobby pins…as many as you want

Style keep time : 5 days with satin scarf and regular oil sheen sprays



Step 1: Make sure your hair is clean and dry.  Your hair will hold the hairstyle better and the finished style will keep longer without you having to interrupt it for washes in-between.

Step 2: Depending on the thickness of your hair make four partitions across your head, moving from ear to ear in a horizontal motion. Make a ponytail for each section so that you have a ‘mini-mohawk’ running down the middle of your head.

Step 3: Begin with the top partition and make a large twist from the hair emerging from the ponytail. Do this down the length of your head for all four partitions so that you have a large twist sticking up in the middle of your head.

Step 4: Curl the twist in the direction you wish to create an ‘updo’, make sure you cover the ponytail holder holding each twist.

Step 5: Spray the style with your favourite oil sheen or spray mix and meet the world head on! (Pun intended :)! )
