 Natural Hair or Transitioning Hair Tutorial- Side swept Flat Twist Out

I have actually posted this tutorial before, but that was when I was still transitioning so I though I'd give you an updated version. To check out my old one (which was with a braid out instead of flat twist out), click here. 

So now that my hair is fully natural, I find this hair style so much easier to achieve by blow drying my hair before. Of course, you can skip this step and start off with stretched hair.

1. Section the hair off that you will use for your big flat twist at the back (see pic number three). Put the rest of the hair away and start flat twisting the back all the way to just above your ear on the opposite side, finish it off by doing a normal twist.

2. I start from the front, and section my first piece off to start flat twisting. The products I used for the style below were: Mixed Chicks Hair Silk (for the blow out), African Pride Leave in Conditioner, Argan Oil Eco styler gel (only a tiny bit). Twist the ends and either leave as is, or use rollers. To prevent the flat twist from unravelling and to stretch your hair as much as possible- put a bobbi pin where the flat twist ends, and the normal twist starts.

3. When at the last section of hair at the back, there is usually no space to flat twist so I either flat twist a really small section or just do one or two normal twists.

Frizz prevention:  If you know the weather is going to be humid and you need extra hold. Apply some hair serum (the silicone based kind) to your hands and smooth it over your hair as you unravel the flat twists. When you are finished separating them, spray some hair spray with hold.
