Thanks Georgia! The braid out worked a lot better. I'm gonna trim when they are in the braids I guess once a monthKnot Today is the best detangler ever! For me, it is easier to do the braidout vs. the twistout. When I braid it, it comes out great! Also, you may need to trim your ends. When you do a braid out, put a roller or rod at the ends to make sure it has a nice curly end.
