Bald spots with my twist?

sweetmx85sweetmx85 Registered Users Posts: 1,017 Curl Neophyte
I just tried doing twist w my hair since I bc'd the back is ok but the front and sides both have spots where you can see my scalp. Does that mean my hair is too thin for them or should I make my twist smaller in those sections? Idk how to upload a pic on here from my phn but I did a quick vid showing the bald spots on my YouTube.com/sophiams85

    did you part like you were laying bricks? They don't have to be square (I hate square parts because they don't give as much coverage)

    the video wasn't very clear, but if you part your hair like you are laying bricks, there will be a twist between every part, and your scalp would not show

    I have this problem with my thin hair what other type of part is there besides the square one?

    Some people will do triangle parts. I don't do neat parts at all because I hate my scalp showing. I part with my fingers, neatly, but not uniformly. I also do my parts like bricks, which makes them look fuller as well.

    half-moon. That's what I do. Round edge parts give more volume (or at least and illusion of volume) as you can pack more twists into the same area than you would if you parted square

    Ok I didn't do any actual parts at all I just sectioned off with my fingers. So that would would prob be what I need to so different. Thanks for your help I forgot to seal my hair prior to twisting so I think I'm gonna take it down and try again thanks lol that would prob fix it right there. I was looking in a mirror I put behind my head and was trying to layer them the right way by just eye balling it. It didn't work to good though and my hair shrunk up so much I'm gonna try it dry next time. Thanks for your help

    I don't have thin hair but I just grab and twist for the most part. I guess it just depends on your hair/head. Your hair doesn't look thin, sweetmx85. Your strands do look fine though.

    Also, it makes a difference if you do them wet or dry. Dry twists won't be as plump as twists done on wet hair. The more plump the twist looks, the less scalp you'll see.

    The key for me is to not make tight twists, but have them bulkier near the root so as to minimize the scalpy look.
    I have a poor quality video showing how I do it if you are interested.

    Thanks for even noticing my channel.:happy3:
    I just got my new Flip camera to try to record better videos, but the quality is still off. I need to know how to set up better lighting or something. I maybe will try to post some of the substandard ones I recorded until I figure it all out.

    I did notice when I tried the
    Dry last night it was diff than I wanted. I want them Plump for sure. I never really thought I had thin hair till seeing my scalp that day. So I'm prob just confusing thin w fine.
    thank u :)
