How do you recreate this flawless look? Technique, the proper products, and few of our insider tips. Try these 4 simple steps. We promise you will love your results.
Step 1: Beginning with cleansed and conditioned wet hair, detangle and then part your hair into sections, starting from the crown of your head, moving to the sides.
- The larger your parted sections the larger your flat twist, which are the base for your twist out. If you are going for a voluminous look, we suggest medium to large size sections.
Step 2: Apply a nickel to dime sized amount of moisturizing styling cream, like our Kindred Spirits Moisture & Style Cream, from the root to the tips of your hair. Secure each parted sections and allow your hair to air dry, until it is almost completely dry.
- Applying a moisturizing styling cream to wet hair allows for extended moisture and hydration.
- Creating flat twists with almost dry hair elongates the curl and makes for a more fuller twist out.
Step 3: Focusing on one section at a time and beginning at the crown of your head, split a section into two, holding each in one hand, and twist to the scalp - adding hair as you go - until you reach your ends. Watch this video to see a step by step tutorial of creating a flat twist.
Once you have completed your entire head, allow your hair to air dry completely or sit under a warm hooded dryer.
Step 4: Once dried, carefully untwist your hair, using a light oil. We recommend Goodnight Kiss Finishing Spritz. To add volume, use a pick to fluff your roots.
- Applying a small amount of oil to your hands while untwisting helps keep the frizz away and adds shine
