Hi N. Twist and rip is only a blue print, They will NOT stay looking how they do now. The ideal way to start t&r is to let the hair separate naturally for a couple of weeks, then do the twists. So if you sectioned them on your own, some may be fighting to go where they would have naturally. You can't force them to stay in a certain direction, like towards the back, they go where they want to. Did you keep the sections no larger than 1 inch, any larger and they can take 24 hours or more to dry once mature.
Your changes will be shrinking, loosening, looping and frizzies. You can't change any this, it is part of the journey. If you wash & separate any joining sections, then you will be fine, that's all you need to do.
Don't worry about how they look, just enjoy the ride, Peace
