Okay, If you follow my journey, you must know that I love mini twists, especially because, they make my hair look fuller and they last for a long time (at most a month for me).
However, I have breakage every time I take them out. Honestly, I did not mind the little breakage but, since I do mini twists frequently, the breakage adds up.
Hair, especially Fine Hair is stronger when there is a cluster of many fine strands bound together. In essence, I am trying to state that medium twists may be better for fine hair as they are larger. Mini twists do make fine hair look fuller, however, very fragile and prone to breakage. This has been my experience. No matter how delicate I am with my hair, it gets tangled and break easily with mini twists.
Update: I have to mention that my hair also gets matted and the breakage comes from my hair being matted. I do get a good amount of shed hair after wearing twists for a whole month, but the breakge is from trying to seperate the matted twists. My hair is so fragile that, no matter how careful I am, it still breaks.
