How To Make Thin Twists and Braids Look Fuller

Early last year, I did my god daughter's hair for my best friend.  As I explained at the time of the original post, Li li has thin and fine hair, the complete opposite of my hair.  If you have thin and fine hair too, one way to make your hair appear fuller is to do brick layer parting.

Check out these set of bricks and notice how the bricks are not stacked one on top of each other:

The vertical lines meet each brick right at the middle.  That is what you want to do with your braids and twists.  You do not want them stacked right on top of each other, rather yet you want each vertical part to be right underneath of a braid or twist right above it.  When you do this, you see less scalp, which helps to make your hair appear fuller.

The best way to achieve this look is to style your hair one horizontal row at a time.  When you get to the next row either below it or on top of the previously completed row, make sure you make the part for the next braid or twist right underneath of the braid or twist right below/on top of it.  This is how your twists or braids end up with the brick layer parting.

Check Exhibit A:


  1. This is precisely how I did my twists when I was loose. People assume that because your hair is natural it's thick, but this isn't always the case.

    Another thing that helped me was making the twists smaller. This gives the illusion of more hair.

  2. You are so right girl. I totally forgot about this method. Thanks for the reminder. I shall be twisting my fine hair using this method as from now on.

  8. I see a lot of guys ask how to put on weight but at the same time are
    missing the most obvious step - they aren't eating enough. The more weight you use the more muscle fibers you will work in your muscle the more muscle you will gain. Those who think obesity is due to their genetic makeup relish any news that 'fat genes' have been found as they look to blame something else for their predicament rather than their own habits and behavior.
