How To Get Perfect Curl Wand Curls On Natural Hair
Similar to cornrows, flat twists lying flat against the scalp. Very similar to regular twist outs but there is more definition at the roots, more elongation on the hair (due to more tension creating the hairstyle) and it is more technical than a regular twistout. Don't know how to flat twist? Here's how you do it.
How to flat twist
Make sure hair is smooth before twisting and for even better definition and lasting style, roll ends with perm rods. Flat twists is the perfect style to rock when transitioning, because it lasts a long time, curls are well defined and it is a protective style that mimics one curl pattern instead of your two or maybe even three!

Ohemjee Jo washed and conditioned hair with shampoo and conditioner in the kit. She applied some Eco Styler Gel to permed ends so the lays flat. She begins flat twisting the section taking up hair along the section as she continues to twist down. At the end of the sectioned hair she takes a perm rod and roll halfway up for that added definition.

Allow to fully dry overnight or under a hooded dryer before untwisting each twist carefully to avoid frizz. Fluff at the roots for desired volume. Make sure not to pick out too much or you could cause frizz and the style will not last as long.
