    Yes...All the time everywhere I go.

    My hair is only even in the back where all the relaxer has been trimmed away. But the top half is not even at all. Plus I've got all these relaxed ends (of various lengths) hanging on too.

    My Twistout tips:
    :rolleyes: To get the good twist definition, don't cheat hair into the other strand. Meaning: these are 2 strand twists. as you get near the end, and strand 1 is slightly longer than strand 2, don't scoop up some hair from the other strand to compensate. it'll look nicer & less frizzy if you avoid doing this.

    :rolleyes: To compensate for any unevenness: Use some small perm rods or flexi rods and spiral the ends. that way the various lengths will barely be noticeable. That's what I do.

    :rolleyes: When doing each twist, generously apply a creamy moisturizer like mango butter or even some vo5 conditioner. And keep a spray bottle near you too. Skeet some moisture on each twist even if it's just plain water.

    :rolleyes: Make sure everything is 100% dry before untwisting.

    Ladies, thanks for all the compliments. I hope this info is helpful.:grin:

    Your hair looks great!

    Do you cornrow your twists or do individual braids?

    Thanks, this would help me with your technique.

    Your twist out looks great! Did you do that with flat two strand twists, or individual two strand twists?

    I most definitely agree with the last two. I get the best twist outs when I follow those two things. Last night I used unrefined shea, mixed with a little virgin coconut oil and some virgin palm kernel oil. I spritzed my hair with a little water before applying the butter. I took them out this morning and my hair is defined and uber soft!
