Hope all is well with you.
As our hair continues to grow in volume and length, it becomes a bit more difficult, at least in my case.
For these past few months, have been racking my brain looking for a protective style that I could put in and leave for about 1 month, without manipulating my hair on a daily basis. Two strand twists have always been a favorite of mine, but after 2 years, I want to learn how to do something new, you know, out of my comfort zone, so thought to myself why not try, Flat Twists.
Now, I know, most of you girls are amazing at flat twists and are Masters at this Art but not me, am merely a beginner of a beginner! As with all things, will get better with time……………….I hope…….. hahahaha……. we shall wait and see.
I did try 2 times before, but both styles came out terrible, so this time, I sat down and did it as best as I could to be presentable. The first two times, because am extremely tender-headed, did them way too tight and boy did my scalp hurt! So did them looser this time and no pain, YES! This will be my new go to style for next 6 months to 1 year, depending on good my progress is.
Did the flat twists using my two strand twisted hair with a bit of conditioner mix, olive oil to seal and of course water to hydrate.

For me, its a bit hard when starting, but once I got it, became much easier. Watched 3 You Tube tutorials that really worked for me and maybe they will help those still learning this technique. If you will like to watch them, please click on the following links:
This is another one of the reasons, I love natural hair, because there is always something new to learn how to do or how to improve. Flat Twists are a very beautiful and unique way to style your hair plus the styles are endless as you progress and improve.
