Quite often, we notice a woman with a head full of twists, and typically you automatically look at her roots to determine if hair has been added. Some people might say that’s nosey. I say that it’s perfectly normal, especially if we want to duplicate the style.
The thing is, nowadays you can’t even tell if the twists being rocked are real or fake because of new ways of installing the hair. You are pretty much forced to have a conversation about the style, especially due to the lack of a bulky “fold” starting at the roots to keep the added hair attached.
This method is called Invisible Roots. It is when a strip of bulk hair is added in between to strips of your hair and intertwined with one another, creating the effect that the hair is coming from your scalp. Genius, right?
It may take a few tries to get the hang of it, but after you get it, it is quite easy. Practice makes perfect, so let’s try and break this method down:
1. Grab a strand or two of hair (Marley braid hair usually comes in big strands).
2. Grab the small section of hair you are planning to add the hair to.
3. Part that section in half.
4. Fold the strand of synthetic hair in half.
5. Place the hair, starting with the top fold, in between the two sections of your hair.
6 The left side of the synthetic hair needs to be intertwined with the left side of your hair. Rotate (twist).
7. Do the same to the other side, except the opposite way of the direction you went with the other side.
8. After twisting both sides, twist both sides on top of one another normally.
9. Repeat the steps above for all of your twists.
Now, I know sometimes when we write things out they might be a bit confusing, so if you need a visual demonstration, take a look the video below, and it should clear things up if you are heavily confused. Naturalnellzy does an excellent and easy to follow video, showing how invisible roots can be achieved:
