ooh this sounds fun! I'd love to give this a try... I LOVE all the twists and braids styles, but I'm not sure; 1) my hair is long enough or 2) has a strong enough curl pattern to hold them in. I've heard you can use hair elastics bands soaked in olive oil to hold the ends - this might work.

Also are you allowed to use extensions in twists etc. I would love to try this, but I am not sure where to get the synthetic hair and if it'll come in a colour that looks somewhat similar to mine.

what do you think?

And since you're in Australia I have no idea where you would get the extension hair from. I would imagine a salon would be a good place to ask, but other than that I'm clueless. Also maybe you could try bantu knots.. I consider that a "twisted style" too.

ETA: Also check on the net to see if you can order some hair..

Ooh! I'm in. I've basically been doing this for the past 3 months anyway. Right now my hair is in kinky twists. I just put them in on Sunday 3.21.10. Here's what they look like:

After I take these out in a month or two I'll continue with my own hair which was this long before the kinky twists:

Yay! I'm excited! This is my first real challenge on nc.com. Hooray!
