did i do something wrong???
 
okay so yesterday i tried doing the 2 strand twist on my hair while it was wet and the results were not what i was expecting...they were very very limp...i used lottabody to hold them cause they kept unravelling...should i try them dry or what any suggestions

Was your hair clean? Product buildup can make hair limp. If your two strand twists try to unravel, try pinning the end of your twist to your root. I don't twist all the way down because I like my ends to curl naturally.

Do you have fine and/or thin hair? I don't really get good twist out/braid out/bantu knot out results because I have fine and thin hair and I know it's the same for other curlies no matter what technique or products we use.

Blame it on the cell phone...

I always do my twist on almost dry hair, I can't stand trying to do styles on wet hair besides roller sets. Next time you do them try it on 75% dry hair, they tend to look better that way (I think anyway).

This is me too, which is why I have given up on twist- or braidouts. Unless I do a single-braid braid out it's not gonna work.

Some people braid the root and then twist the middle, and fingercurl the end to do a "twistout". Maybe you could try that?

I would try doing them on dry or slightly damp hair (dry hair spritzed with water). Also, you can take the root of each twist, twirl it around almost like doing a bantu knot and pin it. That will give you some root volume.

I can't do twists because of low elasticity. They come out absolutely awful every way I've ever tried them (wet, dry, damp, different kinds of product, etc.). That could be your problem.

oh well no twist for me but thanks everyone
 
i think that is my problem...my hair was completely clean...i also tried it dry with the same results...they were a cute style to wear the twists anyway...i guess they are not for my hair...i have really fine 3c hair i get the volume from my dad but my ends are thin like my mom any good products for 3c hair????

Well "good" is a matter of personal opinion, but for me I like Tresemme flawless curls (the mousse and conditioner). They work great for me so far.

I don't understand your question?

The question is not simple.

There's nothing wrong with black hair. It doesn't need to be fixed.

George1900, this sounds like the same question you posted to my fotki guestbook. I'm not going to answer that because you seem trollish to me.
