Don't start with a twist.

Start with a braid.

This is what I did when I had my twist in....It slipped a couple days later lol but I liked it better than the braided look

well one other thing you can do is take them all down and latch-hook them in, none of your hair will show! Last time I did this style this is what I did it takes less time and less effort and clean look! you can still do the edges if you want!

when it comes time to overlap the twists it just pulls down the length of my hair. I will keep trying to twist whole I'm overlapping to see if that helps.

at first I thought it was the texture of my hair but she's doing it on that silky hair no problem...
 
i had this problem when i first tried the technique in the video. 
 
1st make sure you are pre twisting the 2 sections in the opposite direction  (away from each other...almost how you would wring out a towel...if that makes sense) making sure the 2 section are twisted tighter at the scalp.
 
and then when it is time to twist the 2 together you need to twist in a certain direction for it to easily work. if one way is not working try the other direction.

I am following all of your advice but I'm still finding that the twist hair is buckling and not staying taut/ tight against my hair/scalp at the middle spot where it bends.

Crap this one is kinda hard to help without seeing it. The issue could be that your starting the actual twist with the wrong strand.

Ex.twist the right to the right. The left to the left. Then start the strand by crossing the left over the right . Continuing to twist the individual strands on your way down.


Good luck

Ugh I can't find the video that showed me exactly what to do. But you have to do what TC said, first twisting the fake hair into the real (very taughtly, several rotations, like I do a couple inches worth) and then cross them over to make the two strand twist. Because you do it taughtly it automatically anchors well.

Look up Breanna Rutter on youtube though. She has very well explained videos that show several shots of hand placement for starting twists, braids, cornrows. Really really helpful.

thanks! her video is what had me thinking I could do this on my own. unfortunately she instructs that you twist both sides in the same direction which had me failing tremendously for a few hours smh
