#1: Cannot acheive a twist n curl to save my life!
I have tried the twist n curl now made famous by miss CurlyNikki, several times. Each time my hair is undefined fizzy, dry or a big huge messy fro. If I wanted a fro I can achieve that with out twisting my hair. The only thing I found that really works on my hair now is the curlformers. I can rock and do a curl former set like nobodys business. But I've been wearing it so long that it's starting to bore me.
I would like to acheive this style but the twists just won't work for me. Can anyone help or offer any suggestions. Maybe I should try a different method than the one I use for curlformers. Ugh!
I just figured I could use the same products I used for curlformers. Just some leave in condish. When attempting the twist n curl I've tried using the plastic rollers curlynikki uses and I've tried the spounge rollers nothing works.
Like I it just turns into a big dry fro and I can do that without twisting. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong
If you're just using a regular leave-in that may not be cutting it. I use a rinse-out conditioner as my leave-in because they tend to have a better hold than leave-in conditioners. If you're going to use a leave-in you will have to use a light gel to add some kind of hold. I tried using Oyin Honey Hemp by itself, but it had absolutely no hold and I ended up with a fluffy fro. Using a conditioner with hold is key. My favorite conditioner combo is Lustrasilk Shea Butter and Mango and Garnier Sleek and Shine. Also my twist-n-curls come out MUCH better using the pink perm rods than with magnetics. Whenever I used magnetics my t-n-c would last about a day and then after that I would end up with a fluffy fro. Don't give up on twist-n-curls! It takes a lot of different tries to find the right combo of products and rollers, but the results are worth all of the trouble!
