How do you do your two strand twists?

JeliahJeliah Posts: 248Registered Users
I'm trying to do more protective styles. I've tried two strand twists on dry hair- FAIL. They came out looking uneven. I've tried on wet hair-FAIL they wouldn't stay twisted. The funny thing is I did some two strand twists last year but I can't remember what products I used. I guess that's what I get for being such a PJ lol! And they started to unravel after 3 days anyway. So I'm hoping to get some good suggestions.

    Are you making them small enough? Big twists will definitely not stay together. I have a video on twists/twistouts if you wanted to look at that. (youtube.com/missdarcei) Basically I use regular conditioner as a leave in, separate in sections, and twist 1-2 inch sections. I use gel as well on each section if I want it to last or be very defined.

    Ok I finally figured out a method to doing my twists. I had to stretch it first so after I washed my hair I put my hair in 16 braids, let it air dry. Then the next day I twisted my hair with shea butter and gel on the twists on top.

    I didn't do a twist out. I wore my twists for about a week. However I just refreshed them with just flaxseed gel and they came out waayyyy better they should last longer this time.
