The other day I came across this video and after I wiped the drool from my chin, I decided I wanted a flat-twist out as my next style. I was in love with flat-twist outs for a good minute before so I'm pretty secure with knowing the outcome. This time was a bit different because instead of having damp or stretched hair, my hair was verrrry stretched. I basically had a blowout. After my satin strip braidout, I braided my hair again regularly, wore a braidout, then I braided my hair up again with the ribbons. I didn't re-wet my hair so when I took the ribbons out, my hair was damn near straight, fluffy and big as hell.
I flat twisted my hair with Tresemme Flawless Curls Lotion Creme, my pink EcoStyler gel and some olive oil. The parts of my twists that lay flat on my head seemed fine but I knew that my ends probably wouldn't hold a curl because of just how stretched my hair was. So I did bantu knots with the ends of my twists to make sure I'd have some type of curl lol. I kept my hair twisted for a day before I took them down. Here's the look:
