Why wait till day 3 for your twists to puff and hang when you can have the same effect....30 seconds after finishing. Place a mini duck bill clip on the end of each twists as you do them...spray with water and let them hang until dry. They may still take 3 days to fully puff but they won't unravel and they will hang at full length. If you have a shortage of clips...do hair in sections from the nape up...when you run out of clips...take a hair band and anchor that section...remove the clips and start the next section. Leave the hair bands in over night and cut them off in the morning. Sleep on a satin pillow or use a bonnet. This protective will last up to a month.
