Flat twists are a neat way to add a new protective style to your hair repertoire. Regular two strand twists, which can hang loosely, are usually best for natural hair, but flat twists can work well on both natural and relaxed textures. Flat twists are similar to cornrows, but may be easier for beginners or those working with their own hair. Instead of working with three sections of hair, as you do with cornrows, flat twists only require two sections at a time.
Secure the Twist
If the hair you're twisting is long enough, you'll reach a point where the twist is no longer attached to the scalp. You might want to secure the twist here, but it's best to experiment and see what works for you. Here, you can use a small butterfly clip to keep the twist from unraveling. However, the thicker and curlier the hair, the better it is at holding itself together without worry of coming untwisted.
