Twists problem

SakuraSakura Registered Users Posts: 7
I tried twists for the first time a couple weeks ago ( I forgot to take pictures) but I got to like day 2 or 3 of them im and they started to get frizzy and unravel. I loved the way the looked on me and I want to try again.



Does anyone know a product that will help them stay together and help cut down on frizz? I was kind of thinking about trying Garnier Fructis Soft Curl Creme, But I'm not sure.

By the way I have 3c/4a hair... from what i understand.

    I tried something this week, and I am on the 5th day with twists - no frizz.

    I started with well conditioned hair
    Applied a mixture of 1 qtr size honey, 1 tbsp kemi oil (probably could use any carrier), and 4 oz gel (I used eco styler gel for braids and twists) to the ends only

    I spritz my scalp twice daily, and tie with a satin scarf at night.

    If you don't want to mix stuff, try ors lock and twist gel or try some of the other hard hold gels.

    Also, see http://www.motowngirl.com/how_to.php for technique tips.

    I've used ORS Lock&twist gel...it works pretty good IMO. I can get my twists to stay in for about a week before they start to unravel then I just retwist the ends with more.
    Coily, springy, major shrinkage!

    Thanks for all your tips. I retried twisting my hair and i put a little FOTE Gel on it and it seemed to work well. I took them out today because they were starting to look frizzy ( I think it was one to many holiday naps without tying up my hair) But it seemed to last 5 days, which is a new record.

    Does anyone know where I can find ORS Twist and Loc gel? I've looked at walmart and a couple local Beatuy Supply Stores and haven't been able to find it.

    Thanks malikmom, Sally's is the only place I haven't checked. So I might have to run by there.

    I wear my twists for like a week and a half before they start to look too bad. I know before I clipped my ends, they frizzed rather quickly. Split ends have a way of doing that I guess.
