Another Way to Salvage an Old Twist-n-Curl

Hola Chicas!

About a week ago, I was watching an old episode of Girlfriends (when Joan's hair was still super curly, and super flyyy). I was in the midst of admiring her gorgeous low ponytail, when I caught a glimpse of the mechanism holding back that thick mane- a mini claw clip! All this time, I thought she was using a ponytail holder!!! I always loved that style on her, but thought that it'd be impossible to approximate, due to the fact that my fine hair looks very small in ponytail holders.

Fast forward to this morning...

I woke up to a frizzy mess of an old Twist-n-Curl. I thought about puffing it, but sometimes those bands give me one hell of a tension headache. I thought back to that episode of Girlfriends, and reached for my trusty claw clip! Viola...instant fix!

All I did was grab the hair up front, and pull it to the back, securing it with the clip. I added a bit of Shea to the front for extra hold. I hope this quick fix can hep you ladies too!

Later Gators,
Nik

CN -

I have fine hair too...it may even be finer than yours. My hair texture is pretty close to yours, although my hair is about 3-4 inches shorter. I've tried the twist and curl and even though I don't part my hair (I grab and twist per your instructions), when I separate the twists I have big gaps as if I did part. Do you have this issue and if so how do you combat? I may need to allow my hair to grow some more before trying this hairstyle but if you have any recommendations I gladly accept.

Thanks and much love!
Kristy

Ever since your tip of the day to use the claw clip for bedtime and I got some, I've found them to be the best little tool/hair accessory ever! They are definitely handy and I keep one on me all the time!
