Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

What should I do with the ends of my twists at night?
The ends of our twists can be a challenge to deal with. I usually leave twists in for a week or two, and I always braid them up at night. I treat them sort of like I do with my curls, and pull them back in one or two low braids. I braid to about one inch from the ends, then I turn the braid into a twist, and twist to the tips. Then I tuck the tip back into the braid, so none of my ends are exposed.

In the morning I unbraid my hair, and take a bit of a combing conditioner and smooth it over my ends with a tiny bit of water. This keeps my ends curled, and helps them regain their shape after being in a braid all night. It also helps me keep an eye on them to make sure they aren't matting.

Or you could put your twists into a low bun or two at night. Then when you undo them in the morning, smooth conditioner and water over the ends to refresh them, just like with the braid.
