You should know by now that i love to play with my hair, protective styles are like hair limbo for me and i take them out as soon as i can justify it to myself (p.s. when i convince me, i can be really persuasive! Lol).
Flat twists are quite easy to do, especially when you have some length, but for me, its hard to part my hair and flat twist it without borrowing hair from every other side of the part. Now, i’ve got a temporary hack.
When i was preparing to get my weave fixed i had someone plait my hair in this simple all back style.
Once i took my weave out, i washed, steamed and moisturized my hair while i still had the braids in ( i only wore the weave for 2 weeks so it wasn’t too dirty).
Then i loosened the braids two at a time, applied my styling cream and flat twisted it down.
To flat twist, you part your hair the direction you want it to lie, take a section at the top of the row, divide it in two and start twisting. Gradually pick sections as you go down and keep twisting. ( Just like doing corn rows but with two sections instead of three).
I loved how easy it was to do and wear!
As soon as i learn how to control my shorter hair in the back, i will do more flat twist outs!
