Curly twists on my bob

The last time I twisted my hair, I'd done it after I blew it out, and the ends would not hold!!  They were too blunt, unraveling and fuzzing out.  I was so disappointed!  So this time I did smaller twists on freshly washed and air dried hair.  I used Yes to Cucumbers conditioner as my leave in, sealed with castor oil.  I wore my hair out like that for a day- and twisted it dry the next day with no additional product.  It looked kinda icky... UNTIL I decided to roller set it on my small blue flexy rods.  I used Curls Goddess Curl Gel from Target to "wet" the ends of about 6 twists at a time, which I then coiled together to smooth before putting on the rollers.  This fixed the whole style!  Here it is the next day:


And a few pictures from the few days after:
I re-set it on the curlers quickly each night and got 6 days out of the twists before my twist out:
The red highlights.  Fading nicely!
See how my ends begin to revert back to my small curls once outside of the curlers for even a day.
So thennnnnn I went to a birthday party on the weekend and needed an up-do to show off some huge, fabulous earrings I got.  Me and my girls = All NATURAL.  Pressed, locked, twisted - Sexy ladies!

Those are not twists, there thick ropes:) The shape resembles the "bowl" cut.

Thanks again for the styling tips. Mucho appreciated.

Hi @Odry I don't know much about color and I'd admit even that my recent venture into highlighting was a fail- BUT I did see a few posts about using cinnamon and honey to lighten hair (http://www.hairgurl.com/2010/07/cinnamon-does-lighten-hair.html) without the harsher bleaches and chemicals it takes to lift really dark hair.

If you do want to use a professional strength dye I recommend Aveda brand color. I did not suffer any damage after my highlights. My ends are still great 4 months later.
