About yarn extensionsYarn extensions can be styled in natural hair in two ways, as twists or as braids. Yarn braids look similar to locks when finished. I prefer to put yarn twists in my hair because I can twist faster than I can braid. (: Yarn twists are easier to take down because the natural hair is less entwined with the yarn.
|Super Saver Red Heart yarn can be purchased for as low as $2-3|
Selecting the yarnI use Red Heart, 100% acrylic yarn to create my yarn twists. Red Heart yarn is ideal for yarn extensions because it looks similar to natural hair. Red Heart yarn is relatively cheap, usually $2-3. It can be purchased at stores like Walmart or craft stores like Joann Fabric or AC Moore.
