i did kinky twists when i was in school! in my experience kinky twists look really great when you have natural hair because it's similar to a natural texture...vs micros that are straight or wavy. the one time did wavy micros i sorely regretted it and it looked really fuzzy by the end.

i agree with inimitable...individuals last longer, and require less upkeep than cornrows, which i also did at school. if you can do them yourself, or you have someone that can hook you up...well thats another story.

also...sidenote, moisturizing is still super important. for some reason i forget that i actually need to take care of my hair when i have extensions in...*sigh*
