This is the update on my 2nd attempt at a flat twist out. This time I baggied my hair and used my new whipped Shea butter cream. For info on my homemade whipped shea butter cream, see here. Ok, so here's what we did (we as in me and my hair, Claudette. We're a team!) I got the idea for this method from Naptural85. You can visit her site, www.naptural85.com , and it will give you hair advice and links to her YouTube vids.
|So, first put my hair in three mini puffs on each side for a total of six. |
The hair is damp from the baggy method.
|While hair is damp, I put my whipped shea butter in and the wide tooth comb slid through it. Then I separated each mini puff into sections, flat twisting each individual section. I ended up with twelve sections. Make sense?|
|Here is the front of my head, flat twisted. Notice i have two on each side.|
|The next morning, my hair was soooo soft and plush and lush! You can 't tell from this pic, though.......|
|How 'bout this one? Look at that texture and sheen!|
|Even Hubby liked it. I got home that afternoon and he's like, "That whipped cream stuff makes your hair do that?! I like that ." Smh at 'whipped cream stuff '.|
|Me thinks I'm in love- with the twist out and the whipped shea butter!|
|Chile, shoot. You could not tell me I wasn't cute!!!!!!|
Soooo, I think my flat twist out part deux, along with the whipped shea butter mix, was a success! I think that the reason my hair hated butters before was because I used store bought ones that had other ingredients in them that my hair did not like. For instance, my hair does not like coconut oil, I know that it's supposed to work wonders, but Claudette is not havin it. So, the homemade shea butter was made with real, organic, raw, unrefined shea butter and oils that my hair knows and likes. So I will not go back. Personalized homemade whipped shea butter and flat twist out (and accessories, of course) FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!!
Hey, beauties! What style have you tried to pull off? Did you get it right the first time? If not, what did you do?
