wash and blow dry your hair. Use only a small about of conditioner so that ur hair isn't totally dry, but also not too mosturized (because if it is the twist wont stay in). Non relaxed or out dated relaxed hair is the BEST way to start twists. The straighter your hair is, the harder it is for the twists to look fresh.

PART UR HAIR INTO ROWS AND THEN COLUMNS to make little boxes of hair. (just like u would for box braids)

then wrap the weave around the hair (kinky/ Marley) and braid it into ur hair about 1inch of the way down

then use hair from all 3 strands of ur braid and form two strands to start twisting the hair. the tighter u keep the twists the fresher it looks. if u pull hair from all three strands of the braid and add it to the first twist then repeat it for the second twist, it looks better compared to adding 2 of the 3 strands (from the braid) to one half of the twist and the last strand to the 2nd strand of the twist.

after twisting the hair, twist all the way to the end, and then cut off the excess/eneven part of the hair.

to curl the ends, put them in curlers, then dip them in hot boiling water for a few seconds. dry the hair, and then take the curlers out.

all i feel is needed to up keep the twists is an oil sheen/moisturerizer. light oil on the scalp will keep the scalp dry.

if u get ur twists wet, they will droop and give u a whole different look. as long as u keep it dry, they well look full and fluffy.
