I got pretty bored with the hair this week that I experimented with different styles with the flat Twists.
My hair was twisted for the first time on dry hair. I am really trying to use methods that reduce breakage the most in my regimen. It seemed like Damp hair tends to break as it gets dry, although I do the continual misting method that other Coilies use. However, I really liked the dry method (styling on dry hair). My hair was moisturized aith Giovanni Direct Leave-In mixed with Oils and Aloe Vera Juice, the day before. I put in about 16 flat twists going fwom the middle of my head towards the hairline.
Once my hair was completely dry the next day, I styled it using fluffy Shea butter (Shea butter mixed with oils). I divided my hair into two sections, front and back. I put very small flat twists in the back going towards the nape of my neck
When I got bored, I roller set the ends to get this partial Mohawk Look
I was very careful styling my hair dry. I had minimal breakage compared to styling my hair damp. This is very new to me so I think I will continue to experiment with dry styling as long as I am super gentle with my hair.
My Verdict on Cornrows and Flat Twists on Fine Natural Hair (My hair)
Honestly, Flat Twists win!!!! They are more gentle on fine hair than cornrows. They are easier to put in and take out. They also make my hair look fuller. Look at the back of my hair!!!!
Care and Maintenance
Moisturize everyday with African Pride Olive Miracle Braid Sheen Spray (This product is honestly one of the best moisturizers I have ever used, cost only $3).
