Hi Everyone,

I know how to do kinky twists and twists on my own hair but.. I can't figure out how to do the silky looking twists so many people seem to have. Are you guys using regular braid hair? I tried and it looked soooo crappy. Please share your secrets.

Are u talking about flat twists with synthetic hair? If so..my guess would be start it off very small as if u were braiding and then start to twist. if i find out anything else i will be sure to tell u.

What I mean is... when you have kinky twists done with Marley type hair it looks like your real natural hair. I've seen some people do their's and the twists are smooth like they were done with straight hair or something.

It's all in the technique. You have to twist the two pieces before twisting them over each other. Oh and use a good hair gel.

some people use kanekalon hair for twists up to the end instead of marley hair i was given that option when i did mine a few months ago but then i wanted them to be kinky so i used marley hair but ill be doin twists soon with the kanekolon hair which makes it smooth n silky if u want the ends out u can use baby curl hair it looks something like this: these two are baby curl type of hair instead of afro kinky, it is much softer than afro kinky

I'm in the process of getting licensed as a natural hair specialist. I know what type of twist you are talking about and no they do not use regular  marley type hair for these twist. In fact there are like 5 or more different types of  hair that you can use for twist ( example Zat, Puffy Screw, Nubian, Baby Curl) and they all give you a different effect.  I'm not at home right now, but later when I get home I'll take some pictures of some of different types and post. I found this really silky curly hair that is just beautiful  I know you will like it. I'll post later.
