Question 3 Strand F-L-A-T Twists

Hey ladies. It's been quite some time since I've posted anything, but I'm always lurking! Anywho, I've recently master two-strand flat twist outs and they've become one of my favorite styles. I don't even know when the last time I did a regular twist out was. I like that with flat twist, I don't have to put as many twists as I would if I were doing free standing twists, and the results are more defined because I don't have to break anything apart or fluff anything up. Each piece added in to the flat twists becomes its own individual curl.

Lately, I've been wondering if anyone might be able to teach me how to do a flat twist with three (3) pieces instead of two. I don't mean a french or dutch braid, I mean a twist. I've literally found only one tutorial on YouTube and it doesn't have the best lighting to see how the technique is executed. Google and Bing have been exceptionally UNhelpful, lol, and I'm at my wit's end. If anyone knows how to do a flat three strand twist, or a book or website I may be able to use as a reference, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks everyone!

I'm unable to find the link you're referring to. When I type in my search, this thread is the first link that comes up and after that, they all talk about two strand flat twist. I can't find any YouTube video. Could you possibly paste the link to it here?

So, just to update anyone who might be lurking in this thread, I was able to figure out how to get a three strand flat twist in my hair but it wasn't as tight and neat at my two strand flat twists. So right now I think I just need more practice in order to get a good set. When I feel comfortable enough, I plan to do a comparison video showing one side of my hair set with 3 strand flat twists, and the other side with regular two strands.

I did at some point find the video from my pinterest account and forgot to post it here. The youtuber was mama daye, but since she comments on the low lighting in her video number 63 this may be the same one in the OP. There was also a video number 103 or 106 that was labeled being a 3 strand flat twist out too but I haven't watched it yet.
