Hair of the Week: Flat Twist-Out + How-To

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

For the past week I've been wearing my hair out in a flat twist-out style. Flat twists are hands-down my favorite way to twist up my hair (for the purposes of doing a twist-out, not wearing out the actual twists) because it has become relatively easy for me to do (after some practice!). I can also achieve a pretty defined twist-out without having to do too many twists (I usually do about 10-12 flat twists total) or having to do too much separating of the twists at take down - which also helps keep excess frizziness at bay. Whenever I do flat twists I also tend to use very little product overall, and that makes my resulting twist-out soft and fluffy (which I love!). Before flat-twisting each section, I lightly dampened it with water and removed any shed hair. Then I added a small amount of Oyin Hair Dew to soften and to seal in the moisture. For a light hold, I added a small amount of Aloe Vera Gel and then detangled with section with a wide-tooth comb before flat-twisting. I use a single bobby pin to hold the base of each twist in place. When taking down the twists, I rubbed Jane Carter Solution Nourish & Shine on each twist and on my fingers to further tame frizz and add a light sheen. Here's how it turned out! Video tutorial of this flat twist-out is below :)

I did 10 medium-sized flat twists in total. Flat twist tip: always twist your hair in the direction you want it to fall.
