My fabulous roller set was a puff ball within 20 minutes of being done. The only thing I can figure is that I didn't use a good holding product. To save my wash day efforts, I plan to do twists. Nice and big twists that don't require a lot of time to complete. I feel like I already spent all of this time doing my roller set, so I didn't want to spend a whole lot of time on the twists. It took me about 40 minutes to do the twists in the size that I did them. There was probably about 35 twists in total. They came out great in that they are wearable in styling, and will probably make a good twist out.

I wore my hair in these twists for only about 6 hours. When I twisted them, they were still moisturized from the Jane Carter Nourish & Shine, as well as the Shea Moisture Styling Milk. But I remember that the products I used did not have adequate "hold" for the roller set, so I was probably going to have the same problem with my twist-out. So I went to my closet "stash" of products, and pulled out an old time friend, my Taliah Waajid Lock it Up Gel. I added this to my twists (not to the loose hair). I just took sections of twists, took a tablespoon of the Gel, and ran it along the hair shaft from roots to tip. This actually worked!
