Work all the way to the ends of the hair. You can put a dab of oil and/or a holding agent on the ends for additional hold -- this will help if your ends are very dry. When you reach the end, hold the ends firmly between two fingers and gradually release the pressure so that the twist will loosen and settle on its own.
