My First Semi-Successful Flat Twist-Out

1st Day Hair

Let me preface this post by saying, I’m not very good at actual hairstyles. In fact, I never really even washed my own hair until I was fully natural. That is actually one of the reasons that I wanted to start this blog. I want women to see that with practice and patience, anyone can manage thier natural hair.

Anyway, I decided to try another flat twist-out to see if it would look any better since my hair has grown out some. Last time I tried this, my hair was a few inches shorter and I felt that it just didn’t fall right in a twist-out. This time around, I started out on a few day old wash and go. I flat twisted my hair into 8 twists using a little water and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I sealed the moisture in with Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey. I was able to get 4 days in before I had to wash again. I maintained my hair by flat twisting in larger sections every night. Scroll down to see more pictures.

  1. I LOVE it!!!!! Looks awesome- you did a good job. I really like the way your hair is cut/falls and the color looks good on your skin tone.

  2. Hi! I found your blog from the BLM FB page. Your hair looks really pretty, and I completely agree that beauty should be simple and fun. Looking forward to more great posts!

  3. I love it! I can’t wait to see your posts! I just did my BC and I don’t feel comfortable wearing my hair yet. I need to test out a few styles….so please keep them coming! 🙂

  4. Hi there! Great hair!!!!!!!!!!!!! And omg, you are so pretty. Actually, gorgeous! Your waves are great, and the color is really dope too. I am currently transitioning. It’s been 11 months-no perm. I twist my hair while it’s dripping wet, with my motions leave-in conditioner to get the best, defined waves. When it’s dry, I apply Jojoba oil all over, and that’s it! I just followed you. Check out my blog when you get a chance. I’ll check in again on your page for more pics and hair updates.
    Blessings to you. 🙂

  5. Your hair looks GREAT! I have tried twistouts a few times and didn’t like the results:-( I am going to try different products to see if I get better results. Like you, I never did my own hair when I was relaxed! So this washing and styling is very new to me!
