I got impatient and curious and randomly twisted my dry hair while watching tv. The only product I had in it was the gel and pomade from my dry, 2 day old wash n go. It took me under 2 hrs, with no parts and no detangling for smooth twists. I ended up with these med somewhat messy twists. I wore them for one day in preperation for a twist out. Coming next! That was a sucess.
