Flat Twist-Out On Natural Hair

Hola, Ladies!  So, I am not a big fan of twist-outs.  I LOVE them on other naturals but they just don’t seem to work out to well on my hair.  I always opt for my wash n’ go turned curly, kinky fro.  My co-worker rocked a gorgeous flat twist-out last week and suggested that I try one. If you aren’t familiar with twists, there are two different types of twists: two strand twists and flat twists.  Two strand twists are your simple individual twists.  Flat twists are similar to cornrows except they are done with two pieces of hair rather than three.  If you aren’t familiar with flat twists or how to do them, check out the link below. Blakizbeautyful is on of my favorite Youtube vloggers and this is one of many videos she has on flat twists.
