- French-braid/flat twist one side of my hair from the crown to the other side of my head (at the back).
- Hold the loose ends with a ribbon.
- French braid/flat twist the other side.
- Remove the ribbon from the other flat twist/french braid, join the ends of both loose twists and hold the bundle with a ribbon to the side of your head.
After two weeks, it was time to wash my hair. For some reason
I thought it would be a good idea to wash it in big braids but while washing I got tired of the extra work and washed everything together.
After washing, I dabbed off the water with a towel and left the twists to air dry. When it was damp I put it up in a bun (to take the twists of my neck and face while it dried) and by day2 the twists were dry (see pic. below)
Twists still looking good:)
- Made a center part
- Put the hair from the left and right in a ribbon and
- Tuck the ends and the remaining twists from the back of my head in the center; under the ribbon.
Normally, I would have taken down the extensions by now but since I can see my hair, can wash it and inspect it for matting, I am good to go. I am also a very busy young lady -if i many say so - and this style seems to be the best for now! If care is not taken, I might carry it for one more month. And so my lazy mane regimen continues....
