How I LIKE my twists to look

It seems that my last stringy twist out looks better to some than they look to me. Maybe I'm just accustomed to the look of my hair when twisted wet, but no one can convince me that my hair looked good the other day. LOL!

I wanted to show you how I think MY twists should look. I retwisted my hair, using the same products, on wet hair.

There is a difference. More consistency in how the twists look(no stringy/scraggly looking ends), and less frizz(looks like they're supposed to.....freshly twisted hair). They also don't flatten when covered. One of the [other] issues I have with dry twisting is the LACK of plumpness of my twists. The roots may look thick, but when it gets to the ends, they look rather sad. Twists done on wet hair shrink and remain full. I like that.

Anyway, here are pics from yesterday.



And here is an older twist set I like. Again, a BIG difference from the dry twisting. Some techniques just work better for some, and wet twisting works MUCH BETTER on me. :P

What products did you use on your twists? I am going on a cruise in June and want to twist my hair. Your twists look beautiful and shiny!!!!

Thank you! I used Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer on wet hair, Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner as my conditioner(and leave in) in the 3rd pic, and Broaer Intensive Conditioner and Cantu Leave in in the first 2 pics w/ the Elasta Moisturizer.
