If the hair is long enough, you'll reach a point where the twist is no longer attached to the scalp. You may want to secure the twist here, but it's not necessary. Experiment and see what works best for you. Here, a small butterfly clip is used to keep the twist from unraveling. You'll often find that the thicker and curlier the hair, the better it is at holding itself together without worry of coming untwisted.
