Twistout help

Does anyone have pictures of a twistout ( the one that looks ropelike) and directions on how to do one?

    Please excuse the dryness, I didn't smooth the shea butter over it yet, but this is untwisted. For me I kept smoothing the sections as I twisted, sometimes stopping to detangle a bit more. While twisting I also turn the hair a bit so it would kind-of be like I was doing a little coil before twisting it into the other part of the strand. I hope that made sense. For me it's basically just making sure it's smooth before twisting and that the twist aren't made loosely.

    mzmillion, there are different youtube videos, but I don't think a video is completely neccessary. It's really simple.

    This is how I do it:

    1.Take your section of hair and split it into 3
    2. Take your right piece of hair and cross it all the way over your middle and left piece. (It now becomes your new left piece)
    3. Take your new right piece of hair and cross it all the way over your middle and left piece. (this now becomes your new left piece)
    4. Take your NEW right piece of hair and cross it all the way over your middle and left piece.

    As you can see, I'm just repeating myself, lol. But that's how I do my three strand twists. Hope that helps!

    It sounds really easy, because it is really easy. Just keep crossing the right side all the way over the left side, cross right all the way over left, cross right all the way over left, keep repeating...

    Thanks for the explanation. What's the difference in results between a 3 strand twist, a briad, and a 2 strand twist ?
