This morning I was on the train and saw this young girl with the twist and I asked her how long had she had them in she said 2 months and I just washed them last night. She told me that she likes it better than braids because it doesn't take out a lot of your hair like braids does. And its also a different option for a protective style. My question is has anyone on the board had the twist put in. And if so, what was your experience. Thanks.
