Layered Flat Twist-Out

Adrienne November 9, 2010 5

Ninety percent of any given week you will catch me wearing my hair in a twist out. It has become my signature hairstyle. But, here lately, I’ve been on the search for a way to achieve more definition.

Usually, after washing my hair, I place medium sized twists throughout my head, allow them to dry, then untwist. After watching a few YouTube videos I decided to try a new way of twisting my hair.

Instead of individual twists I flat twisted my hair in layers. I parted my hair on the side & two strand flat twisted 1-1 1/2 inch sections, from the part to the sides, allowing the loose ends of each twist to hang over the other.

After my hair air dried I added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to my hands, to fight the frizz, & slowly untwisted each section. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of definition I achieved.

I’ve found that the more defined my twist-outs are the longer they last. I wonder how many days I get out of this style?

If you are looking for more definition give layered flat twists a try!

    I like you normally do individual twists but after seeing a YT video I tried the layered twists. I only tried it once but need to practice more hence I’ve gone back to individual twiests but like both.
