I will!..I will try that style...

Have you ever found yourself watching natural hair tutorials like its the Food Network? The food looks so good, you jot down the recipes, you say you "must" try it but then file it in the Ooh Awe Maybe One Day folder?... Well I am Guilty! I watch my favorite vloggers faithful a few times a week and get excited about the styles they create but fall short of making time to give the look a try. Well its time for me to change that! I will start my journey of re-creating  the styles on my natural hair To Try List ...Hopefully I'll find my Spring/Summer look....

I debated between my girl (in my head) MakeupanBeautyJunkie's spiral curl set and my homegirl (don't know her but she is a Detroiter) CharyJay's flat twist out. Both styles were gorgeous and had a lot of body and volume, so I decided to let my hair supplies decide for me.  Perm rods were needed for both but CharyJay's only required a few for the ends so with the mysterious roller bandit hitting my house in the last few months  the decision was made.  I watched her video twice and was ready to get to work.  I didn't have the products she used but I figured I could make it work.  My natural hair product stash is so bare but I was able to pull out a few things to hopefully keep me from looking like a hot mess.


I used Jessicurl Cleansing Cream to wash my hair, Tresemme Naturals to condition and detangle, Lustrasilk Moisture Max Leave in & Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to create the twists..I told you my cupboards are bare! I don't have a complete line of anyone..so sad

Note: I have done flat twists before with great results but this was the first time I did it on dry hair and created the twists in this direction of on the side and a section in the back.

I really like it! I however realize that I have a bad habit I must break immediately! When doing flat twist, I unknowingly switch to grabbing the hair in 3 sections for a moment but then go back to 2..Its crazy, so when I remove the twist there is one portion that seems like a braid causing a bit of frizz...I will practice on my daughter's hair and see if I can correct this..
Here's MakeupanBeautyJunkie's video!
