I'm sure some of you have seen this style on Natural-Hair-Care-Info.com for N's feature. Well, I wanted to share it again here for those that didn't see it. I also wanted to tell you that this was my very FIRST time doing flat twists!!! Yes, I knew it wasn't hard and I pretty much got the technique I just never did it, until now, and I think I did a pretty good job! I must add with N's hair type I like cornbraids better, they last longer and look neater to me.
Prep: I washed N's hair the night before, and put her hair into 4 braids to sleep with. In the morning I unraveled the braids.
1.) I parted her hair from ear to ear (in half /horizontal.)
2.) Beginning with the top section, I made three (3) cornbraids on the sides of her hair, near her ears.
I did this on each side of her ears, so it was a total of 6 braids.
3.) I made 3 flat twists going towards the right, and 4 going toward the left.
4.) Next, I put the back of her hair into a ponytail. I wet the hair in the ponytail with water. Then I added a few sprays of Motions Setting Lotion to the wet hair.
5.) Finally, I added Curlformers all over the ponytail. The next morning I removed the Curlformers and sprayed some Bee Mine Juicy Spritz, and used Bee Mine Curly Butter to smooth down her edges.
