I got my act together and now my hair is back to its normal length 🙂 This style is very quick and easy to do. I did two jumbo flat twists going upwards and made my usual fringe/pomp at the front and voila! An elegant natural hair style suitable for all occasions.
I’ve had fun playing with my Curlformers these past few weeks, but they are time consuming and very uncomfortable to sleep in despite what some people may say. So what to do? A flat twist up-do of course! I want my hair to be out of sight and out of mind for a week… Continue reading Back to my Flat-Twist Up-do
I’ve been blogging since November 2012 so to mark this milestone I created this gallery of my favourite styles from the past year 🙂 As you may have observed I’m a big fan of flat-twists and up-dos. This is because they ‘tame’ my locks, look stylish and do not require the use of heat and… Continue reading 12 Months of Protective Styles on Natural Hair
So I’m really loving my As I Am products as they leave my hair moisturised an bring out my natural texture. I flat twisted the sides and did loose twists in the middle for versatility. Here are the styles I’m rocking this week.
Recently I’ve been lazy with my hair regimen. Sometimes I must admit this natural hair lark does get tiresome. I hadn’t washed my hair in a couple of weeks and it was beginning to show. My scalp was flaky, my hair had a lot of build-up and was generally dry and dull. I knew it… Continue reading Week 34 – Clarify, Deep Condition and Up-do
I didn’t have time to wash my hair so I just re-did last week’s style. The hair in the centre was parted and flat twisted on both sides, then twisted in the middle and tucked in at the bottom. This style wasn’t my original plan but it will do for a few days. I will… Continue reading Twisted flat twist up-do
Everyone should have a signature hairstyle and as you know, mine is the flat-twist up-do. I always think about leaving the middle ‘out’ and curly but I hate doing my hair daily, so instead I just tuck my hair away. In these pics you can see close-ups of my hair texture, which I class as… Continue reading Week 32 – Signature flat-twist up-do
It’s still hot and sunny in London, which makes me want to do better things that wash and deep-condition my hair, so I just re-did by style from last week. I undid each of flat-twist, re-moisturised, sealed, then re-flat-twisted. My hair wasn’t dirty, just dry so I felt ok about that. This style is slightly… Continue reading Week 30 Style – Flat Twist up-do
It’s another classic! My hair absolutely loves this style! I’ve been flirting with the jumbo flat twists recently but I don’t think my hair is long enough to keep that style for more than 3 days. My hair just gets frizzy, dry and itchy. But with a flat-twist updo my hair simply behaves itself leaving… Continue reading Week 29 Style – Flat-twists into Jumbo Flat-twist Updo
I don’t pretend to come up with a unique hair style for every week as there is much more to life. This is more or less my Week 11 style but without the flat twists going from the centre outwards. I was too tired for perfection. It’s important for naturalistas to have several go-to styles… Continue reading Week 27 Style – Triple Jumbo Flat-Twist Updo
