Double-strand twists are a great protective style. What's a protective style? It's one that keeps you from having to keep combing and manipulating your hair every day and allows your hair to get a rest for a period of time. A tightly twisted double-strand twist hairstyle may last for a few weeks or a month or so. The bonus is that after you have worn your double strand twists for a few weeks or a month, you then get to do a twist-out hairstyle by undoing the twists and wearing a twist-out that you get from the nicely "set" twists. I usually wear a twist-out for several days to a week to get more mileage from having done the twists. There are many types of protective styles and a double-strand twist is just one of them.
I did these twists using one of my products that I create for my business. It's a body butter that doubles as a hair product and gives nice tight twists.
