Moni Sola: I have thin hair too and twists are a pain but they do help your hair to grow and not break. I suggest that you do them with as little product as possible. I put in light leave in (I like Giovanni Direct leave in) throughout damp freshly washed hair and then twist . Then I rub a little oil over all of the twists and roll them on flexirods. When I take out the flexirods I pin the twists up kind of close to the roots. At night I moisturize with water and put the flexirods in again.
NappyNFree: Thanks, lady! I won't...I will keep plugging away with this hair of mine!
Candie5000: Lol I love the video. Dont give up and I also have thin hair. And your funny! Good luck sista!
NappyNFree: Thanks for the tips. I have become a pro with the curly twist out!
NappyNFree: Thank you!
CessCurls Turner: BTW I actually thought that the results in the beginning of the 1st vid (i think #44) was cute.
CessCurls Turner: Late response. instead of heavy butters/grease for the twists try using a good leave in and a light holding gel. put the leave in throughout your hair before you start twisting and seal with a light oil then use a little gel for each twist. I too had to make this adjustment the butters/grease may be too heavy for your hair. I also find that when I curl or do a braid/twist out on the 2 strand twists it gives me a fuller look. Good luck and happy styling.
NappyNFree: Good idea! I can see how this would hide the scalpy look. Thank you!
SimplyLala1: Try putting your hair diagonal instead of doing it straight across. This will help to limit some of the scalpy look
NappyNFree: sigh...I wish I could try CO. I bought some a long ago and loved the consistency and how it made my hair feel. However, I am allergic to it. It makes my scalp itch like the pickleens! Any product with CO high on the ingredient list is bad for me. Which I hate because so many hair products use this oil!
Thanks for the suggestion, though!
rbandleahsmom: I love your graciousness. My 6 year old daughter had issues with her hair looking moisturized and I tried EVERYTHING. Then I went to Wholefoods grocery and bought natural coconut oil and it was amazing. Try your twistout with coconut oil blended with a little ecostyler until it makes a butter like consnsitency and you will love that look even more! Good Luck!
NappyNFree: I am trying! The thin hair makes this style hard to wear!
OliviaDaughter: Keep working in it. I have.similar issues.
NappyNFree: This is really great advice. You are so right about the wealth of info available on YouTube and how overwhelming it can be. I constantly have to fight the urge to buy everything. :-) Thank you.
NappyNFree: It's a hard-knock life. :-)
Stacey K: I feel you my thin hair sister
NappyNFree: I AGREE! Jherri curl juice has been my go-to for moisture. Too bad I had to learn the hard way. :-)
Brooke Moore: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!! Also, keep deep conditioning. I think you will notice a difference
NappyNFree: I didn't know this. This applies to edible aloe vera gel, too? That is what I use. I have used aloe vera juice in past, but stopped using it because it spoiled faster than I was using it. When I run out of the gel, I will purchase the juice and really compare the two. Thank you!!!
