With MIXED ROOTS™ products the two strand flat twist is the perfect way to get definition and movement into natural afro, kinky hair. Similar to corn rows, two sections of hair (instead of three) are twisted close to the scalp in rows. Remember – the larger the twists, the bigger the curl, but smaller twists tend to hold their definition and last longer.
* MIXED ROOTS™ Curl Cleansing Shampoo * MIXED ROOTS™ Deep Moisturising Conditioner * MIXED ROOTS™ Curl Control Leave in Conditioner * MIXED ROOTS™ Curl Refresher Finishing Spray * MIXED ROOTS™ Curl Stretching Custard * MIXED ROOTS™ Replenishing Oil Treatment
Wash with MIXED ROOTS ™ Curl Cleansing Shampoo (SLS and Paraben Free) and condition with MIXED ROOTS™ Deep Moisture Conditioner to clean and soften the hair.
Using MIXED ROOTS ™ Curl Refresher Spray, moisturise the hair and part even rows one at a time. Next saturate the section of hair you are working with either MIXED ROOTS™ Curl Control Leave in Conditioner or MIXED ROOTS™ Curl Stretching Custard –these are the products that helps form and set your curls. Begin twisting the section, working from the front to the back against the head, twisting continuously. Some hair types may need to secure the ends of the twists with bands to prevent unraveling.
Once your hair has been twisted, it must be dried COMPLETELY to set the curls, some people like to air dry naturally with a blast or two from a hand dryer while others prefer to sit under a hooded hairdryer.
A flat twist is a pretty style in itself! You can wear it like this for a while until it starts to become messy.
Undo the twists and smooth a little MIXED ROOTS ™ Replenishing Oil Treatment through the hair for an extra boost of shine and hydration.
Style the hair gently with fingers and Voila! A lovely head of natural kinky curls!
