We love working with inspiring young women, and miss Hanna LaShay is no exception! The girl can sing, act, model and she can do a mean flat twist! Just look at those perfect parts. We also love working with brands whose ingredients we can get behind and we know for a fact that our community loves them too - that's right we're talking about SheaMoisture. Hanna's mom is a salon owner so she was first introduced to the brand by her mom. This is how she flat twists her hair as a protective style when she's on the go or for going to school.

What You'll Need

 

Directions

  1. After shampooing, part your hair with a rattail comb to section your hair
  2. Take a small amount of Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk and apply it evenly to the first section of your hair
  3. Use a small amount of Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Souffle to lay down the edges (for a cleaner look)
  4. Detangle that section with a wide tooth comb
  5. Flat twist that section by grabbing two strands of hair and twist one over the other, continue to do this adding a little bit more hair to the twist each time (watch the video to see what we mean)
  6. Once you twist all the way to the nape of your neck, continue with a regular two strand twist to the ends of your hair
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each section

Hanna typically creates 8 or 9 flat twists, this will vary based on how big or small you want your curls to be. When you're ready to take your flat twists out (Hanna leaves her in for a week) you simply untwist them as you would a normal two strand twist. Hanna likes this style because it's quick and easy, she can do them on the go and her hair won't be as time consuming for her busy weeks.
