    Cool and thanks for the advice. I kind of like these twist things. People at work think i have locked my hair from afar until the come and pull on the twist. Im still waiting to do that twistout fro. When I say that they look kind of wild after sleeping on them I mean that they dont seem to be staying in any certaint formation. Every day the seem to go which ever direction they want.

    like jtsupa said the steam from the shower will help or you could stand under the shower and rinse them. This should put them back in place.

    Slim, we didnt mean WASH them, but you could RINSE them. I wouldn't suggest it though since you are pretty new at doing your hair yourself.

    Next Friday? Like RoseBurnt said, that's longer than a lot of members wear their twists. You're already ahead of the game.

    Like I said they kind of look almost like dreads. They only look like twist if you get close. I think they should probably last that long. Boy if I knew that everyone would be pulling on my hair when they walk up I probably wouldnt have gotten these bad boys.

    Greetings new nap. It's been a while since I've posted, but I found this thread quite interesting. When I first went natural, I desired the same style. what worked for me was after wearing my two strand twists for a few days,I would rinse them, allowed to airdry half way, then take them out while still damp. I didn't even have to pick it out because when they dried completely the thickness, height, and curls were there. Make sure you use a moisturizer when you do your twists so that your hair won't be dry after you do your rinse.

    I hope this helps in the future. Please don't pay that much money again.

    Thanks for the advice. What do you use as a mosturizer. Far as me paying that much, how much do you think it should cost? Because it took almost a whole hour just to put these little guys in. Do you have any pictures of your hair in the twistout style?

    Yeah, please don't. They are pretty easy to do. It is a good idea to do the above as well. Please post once you are finished..

    They should be free. I got a twistout like that on my first try at a twistout. I still say that you can do them yourself. But if you don't want to, I wouldn't let anyone charge you more than 20.

    Ya'll are crazy....like the hair Slim....looks good! $60 dollars for the twist is kind of steep. You should practice on how to do them now that you seen how they are done. Also, you can get comb coils or finger coils and pick it out slightly. It will give you that chunky fro look....

    Here is a better shot.

    Was it like this but a little more seperated at the roots? it could have been a washed twist out and his hair seperates into sections.

    or this... i think these are seperated finger coils.

    First of all...let me jump on the bandwagon and welcome you to our community. I checked out your hair pics and from looking at your 'fro, your texture is pretty similar to mine when it was that length. I wore twist-out fro's pretty often earlier in my journey--I'll post a few pics here so you can see if it's similar to what you're looking for...

    As for a moisturizer, something as simple as some conditioner and water in a spray bottle can be used--anything water-based is good for moisture. I make a water-based spritz that I use for my own hair, and I'd be more than happy to send you a FREE sample if you IM me. And rest assured, I'm hapily married.

    p.s. - I forgot to provide you a link from where I got those pics--they're from my hair site at http://www.acjazz28naturalhair.net. Look at the Sept 2003 page. Hope this helps!

    Hey acjazz28 how long do you get to wear your hair that way in these pictures? What do you wash your hair with before you take the twist out?

    #

    Well, I was able to wear my hair that way for at least a week--if I wore it any longer than that, it would take me a bit to get it detangled and twisted back again. After I took down the twists, I would spritz my hair with my Rosemary Spritz and fluff up the roots of my hair with my fingers--don't wash it after you initially take your twists/plaits down or you'll wash away the 'definition' of the twist/braid out. Now, when it's time to wash, I do the no-poo routine, with just conditioner (Suave Tropical Coconut) and a little baking soda or lemon juice for clarification. It's more gentle on your hair than regular shampoo. And that's done before you do your twists or plaits.

    Hope that helps!
