The month of flat twists

If you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you will have noted my various attempts at twist outs styles. I started the month experimenting with the 2-strand twists, but they were not as defined as the flat twists, so I opted for flat twists. Overall, i am happy with the results.


I followed the wash method as August, adding Shea butter to the deep conditioner and I prepped my hair using the LCO method. I added Elasta QP Mango Butter Pudding to hold the curls and I added a little bit of mousse for fullness. I finished by sealing with avocado oil.

The curls only last till midday, so I will be adding a gel to prolong the style. I recently purchased aloe vera gel from No Frills , to try once i take out this Ghana braids.
