I have been wanting to do a halo flat twist for a very long time and I am glad that I finally managed to do it. Ordinarily, I would have wanted it to start at the back of my head, slightly below the ear. However, I decided to work with the side parting I had from Monday’s style.
I basically re-did the flat twist on top and continued it all around my head. I was at the gym and so had to keep asking other ladies if the flat twist was going in the same direction at the back of the head. This was the hardest part and it is very difficult (for some of us) to maintain the same direction when flat twisting. I then tucked the end of the twist into itself and pinned it into place. I also had to pin some ends which were still sticking out. Thanks to the ladies in the gym for spotting them for me. In total I used 5 bobby pins. This style took about 5 minutes because my hair was already sectioned. The chunky twists from Monday ensured the hair was ready for flat twisting.
You will notice that I have far more definition than yesterday due to some shrinkage (FYI – I love and value definition in my hair above almost anything else). The shrinkage is because the blow dried straight ends were sticking out and so I had to get the hair to lie down. I don’t use gel for my edges or to smooth my hair, instead I always apply shea butter and spritz to my palms, rub together and smooth over my hair. This is followed up by a satin/polyester or silk scarf for 10 to 20 minutes to set the hair in place.
