After a good wash I keep my hair in 5-6 sections. Then I do one at a time, moisturize with Giovanni leave-in(a tiny dot of veg. glycerine), apply coconut oil or some times shea butter. I never use gel. My hair is soft, touchable and it moves.

This is very similar to what I do, except, I use mostly shea butter or castor oil. It leaves my hair incredibly soft and twist out ready in a few days (since I normally keep my twist in over a week).

Those of you who use shea butter - are you saying you use it on the length of the twist - and your hair still comes out soft?

My avatar's twist is done w/shea. It doesn't weigh my hair down and I think I am a 4a/b, very coily/frizzy hair, depending on what section you're looking at [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]. I moisturize about 4-5 sections of hair w/a small amount of shea before I twist. I think the trick is to really massage it into the hair so it doesn't just sit on top of the hair. It leaves my tresses extermely soft and moveable.

hey, i have only been using bobby pins. Not the flimsy ones, but the ones that old-school strong. I have been wanting to use duckbill pins, but am afraid of tangling...

I have already told you how much I LOVE your hair. I can't wait to try a twist out when I get a bit more hair!

Y'all have inspired me to give the twist out a try. Hair is now in twists and they are all lying flat. Will update with pictures of the result, later.

Does anyone know the trick to TWA two strand twists? I have the hardest time with them! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Then, when I take them down, I look as if I stuck my finger in the electrical socket! Lol!!!

Hello MahoganyCurls. I did my first two strand twist on my TWA last night. I did medium size twist on my damp hair. I sprayed my hair with water and added some Giovanni leave in conditioner(just a small amount). For the twist I use coconut oil and sealed them with shea butter. I slept in my bonnet. When taking them out I rubbed coconut oil in my hands as I took out each twist. I LOVE the results. I think this will be my staple style for the winter.

Please post pics I wanna see!

First Attempt at twists

Post by divadr175 on 29th October 2009, 3:31 pm

So I twisted my hair last night after poowash using shea butter to seal and it looked pretty cute[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.], but after wrapping and then sleeping on it, I had a bunch of flat twists on my head. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Decided to throw on a scarf, lift up the twists as best as I could and keep going. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Wouldn't you know it, I got compliments on it all day. Will keep playing with it but I like that it keeps my hands out of my hair more.

Your thoughts and advice are truly welcome. Thanks.

Rebelrocks- Thanks! This is a silk scarf I picked up the day after my BC. It has been really handy. Today my hair is a little frizzy but I'm waiting until tomorrow to undo the twists. Will post a photo of it twisted out!

Im sorta in the same boat as BlondByDesire. I too am transitioning so sometimes i think because i am not fully transitioned that my twist dont come out right. I tried the twist out a couple of times and it always looks cute when its wet but when they dry, they are flat. U know what i mean its kinda hard to describe but they dont look twisty they look more like flat waves sorta. LOL. IDK. But the braid-outs works great on my hair. Do yall think because im not fully transitoned is the reason they come out flat?

oh, and am still experimenting with keeping my roots defined (which equals to less re-twisting). i have found that adding shea butter near the roots a day after the twist out helps. i will be experimenting with thicker butters/pomades.

Ok ladies...I did a 2 strand twist...let's see how this comes out. I have my fingers crossed!
And do you see what I mean about shrinkage..my hair doesn't look long enough to do this.....hopefully the outcome is hot. Stay tuned

@tiashauntee - do you use gel or setting lotion when you set your twist?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] It came out a frizzy...but I will try again. I did it on dry hair..maybe I will try on wet hair next time and use pins to keep the twist down to the root. I also struggle with the taking them out as well as getting rid of the parts. I even tried pulling it back....not so fond of it. I will not give up though. The good thing is..my hair is growing nicely!! So now I am off to do a wash n go. TTFn
