Literal two strand twist!

I'm just super curious if this has ever been done and what it would look like?

What I mean is taking in two strands of hair and twisting them, not two sections.

This would obviously take forever, but I can't help but wonder.

    I have no reason to believe the hairs would even stay twisted if it was just two strands of hair. This also sounds like a recipe for tangles and breakage.

    What? This sounds pretty insane to me. Do you know how many strands of hair are on your head...even someone with thinner hair?

    You've literally done two strand twists using two hairs per twist?

    I would never in a million years attempt this. It would be a nightmare to put in as my hair is massively dense. Secondly, it would be a nightmare to take down without getting massive tangles.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
  • scrillsscrills Posts: 6,700Registered Users
    Yeah, i would advise against it

    noooooo please dont do that. it's the same concept as a tangle, you would purposely be tangling your hair. I know you want that little richard hair, this would be hella counterproductive.
