    Posted: Dec 10 2008 at 7:31pm
So, I've come to see that there are sooo many different types of twists. And to me ... when i look at them they all look the same. But I'm sure there's some kind of difference. Like Senegalese and Kinky twists ... i thought they were the same. Are they? Fluffy twists, I saw a thread about them, but many didn't know what they are. Nubi Twists, Soft Twist ... so on.

So I'm just wondering if anyone can tell me the differences. Is it the hair used that makes it different ... or the technique. Does anyone have pics of these different types ... or experiences with them.

Thanks!Big%20smile

Wow..I've never seen this marley braid before but does it come already sectioned off for the twists?
I'm thinking of getting twists this weekend & I'll be going out to buy marley braid. Wish me luck!

It's kinky twist hair but split each piece. Use perm rods on the ends..

CuddleCore- Great Question.  I wondered the same about the difference between Fluffy, Nubian, Spring, and Kinky Twist?  Only thing I can gather is the hair that is used to do the twist but the braid technique is basically the same. 

I asked a lady her who does them and her response was "Fluffy, Nubian, Spring, and Kinky are all twist. However to perfect the Nubian, spring, or fluffy this particular hair that you use. The hair is order from www.eonhair.com The only difference is the hair comes on a track and you have to cut it off."
