So once my curls started to poof, my thought was to rely on a 2 strand twist out. But as I was perusing YouTube, I discovered the 3 strand twist *gasp* - my new style obsession. It really sounds more complicated than it is. You are literally twisting your hair, like a rope, with 3 strands. You just have to be careful not to braid your hair. Check out a great tutorial from MsKelabug:
Yesterday, I planned on doing a 3 strand twist on wet hair, but I'm "chasing [the style] dragon" this week and decided to use Curlformers again. I've really gotten the technique down and my second attempt took only 45 minutes. I would love to hear about your Curlformer storiy!
