    I've been wearing my hair in a FT almost daily for the past few weeks. I want to share with everyone that the trick for me is to insert the FT comb about half an inch from the edge of the FT's spine. You don't have to pick up a lot of hairs. Then insert the tips of the prongs about an inch away from the spine and immediately turn the prongs under the spine and the FT itself, picking up scalp hairs along the way. (Was that as clear as mud?)

    If the FT comb feels too tight, you probably inserted the prongs further too far from the spine.

    This video demonstrates how to do this really clearly.

    When I do this "just right," it feels almost "too comfortable," like the FT could fall apart. But, in reality, it's very secure!

    Thank you! I'd like to get a comb for the twist instead of a million u-pins

    Haha I can empathize, the second I finished my first successful twist I started looking online for some hair combs! I have now ordered two, I will post pictures as soon as they arrive

    I'm glad that you found it helpful, purple_omelette.

    Here's a pic of today's FT secured with my pearl-colored FT comb. I quite like the way it contrasts with my hair color.

    Pardon the pic quality. I suck at selfies, especially of the back of my head.

    I just found this video that explains how easy it is to use a FT comb.

    I love a French twist! My mother used to do it on my grandmothers hair for church. <3

    Lovely contrast, and the shine of your hair is mirrored in the comb.
