If you twist all the way down, you can't tell once it's all twisted up & you dip the ends in boiling water to seal them. X-pressions is the most recommended hair by youtubers for this, so you're OK.  I was just hoping to leave the end open & I need Model Model for that.
But you're still good w/ X-pressions Thumbs Up
PS: It tangles less actually if you just use it straight out of the pack without the coconut oil and blowdrying straight first.  I maintain it with a daily spray of basically S Curl moisturizer spray with extra olive oil in it. But I make my own. I use water, vegetable glycerine, and olive oil in a spray bottle. 
So it's all good. Good luck and let me know how yours turns out!Smile

I am feeling a little anxiety already with my hair locked away. I can't wait for this month to be over so I can take it loose and pamper my hairs again LOL 
I long to lather them in soothing conditioners and oils lavishly. I just can't get to it in these things. Although I like the length this provides, I feel a little trapped or claustrophobic with this on at times. Let me go have a drink to try to get through it LOL

I dunked my head in the tub, conditioned and then sprayed the braids with my water, oil and glycerine mix. I felt a lot less separation anxiety from my hair after an intense moisturization session Thumbs Up

Darn... unfortunately, I am having problems with my twists. The ones in the back were like an inch off the scalp already.(slipping) when I took them loose to redo them I noticed knots and tangles in my hair that required me to cut the knots out. Darn I love my hair like this, but unfortunately I will probably take them out within a week or so to avoid further knots and loss of hair Confused

PLEASE HELP
I really want to keep my hair in twists. If anyone has any hints as to how I can wear this without it eating up my hair with mats and knots on frizzy biracial 3b hair.... PLEASE TELL ME what I can do to make this work without distroying my hair.

UPDATE I really got freaked out when I had to cut several inches off of my tips last night in order to detach the fiber from the tips of my hair. The braids had slipped down an inch from the roots. That slack all tightened up the twisting of my tip ends into the fiber. So at the bottom of my hair it was knotted on several braids.Ouch I lost several inches off the tips of several braids. With my hair already being quite thin, this is noticeable. If I had thick, bushy hair, perhaps no one would ever notice. Unfortunately I do not.

I THINK, the back may have slipped so much because i did not put the Curls passion fruit curl paste on that part because it had not come in the mail yet when I started on the back the first day. The twists in the front with this jam on my hair seem to be fairing better. So, I put ample amount of the curl paste/jam on the strands I retwisted last night. I will keep my fingers crossed that adding the paste to the braids in the back will 1) help with the slippage and 2) help to protect my ends from knotting up into the kanekalon. I really want these twists to be a regular part of my hair image from now on until I grow my own hair to below waist length. In fact, I already planned that I want to do them very skinny and closer together next time. So I am praying that this will actually work out and not chew up the ends of my hair that I am working so hard to grow. Stern Smile
