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!
