Awesome!
As far as tightness goes these lil clips help a lot. Pin one side down while twisting the other. L

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


Ah I see. I think when I actually do it, I tried a few different ways and ultimately twisted the hair in my right hand to my right...and the hair in my left hand to my left...and then crossed them over.

If you're better at cornrows...or know someone who will cornrow your base for cheap...then doing crochet/latch hook twists is much easier and faster. Even kind of bootleg cornrows that aren't that great/tight will work in a pinch (which is what mine usually are).

^^^ yeah, Maysay's right, if OP is twisting both sections in the same direction, they will unravel, she needs to twist them in opposite directions before crossing them

Or you can go back to the stylist and have her fix it.....and also redo the ones that are separating.....for now.

Yeah, go back to the stylist. they're not going to charge you for one braid. i've done that before. after 11 days your braids shouldn't be coming out anyway. even though you messed with it you don't have to tell them that lol
