Today’s styling: Large flat twists across the front, remainder of the hair twisted back.  I used Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 Miracle Worker and styled all of my hair while it was dry, finger parted and perm rodded the ends.  Photos forthcoming to show the end result in the morning.

This evening’s hair took me about 5.5 to 6 hours from start to finish.  

I started by detangling into four sections with my Tangle Teaser.  Next I shampoo with my Shea Moisture shampoo and afterwards I applied the Shea Moisture Masque to each section, clipped them and tied my hair up with a plastic grocery bag (thanks for the tip Tam).  

After wearing the masque for about 40 minutes, I rinsed it out and began to twist with a mixture of Knot Today, coconut oil and Hawaiian Silky Miracle Worker.  One flat twist across the front and a head full of twists later, TaDa.  Let’s see how it looks in the morning though.

Afya, Nywele Na Mwili: Flat Twist/Flat Twist Out !

I REALLY need to learn how to flat twist…so pretty.


Flat twists are essentially cornrows, but using 2 strands of hair instead of 3. Part your hair using a rat tail comb or something to make the parts sharp. Separate section into 2 strands at the hairline. Wind one strand over the other like a rope, picking up hair as you move down the…
