Flat Twistout Hairstyle

I plan on utilizing various transition hairstyles to protect or hide my hair. The above picture shows me with a flat twistout hairstyle. It’s probably going to be my trademark do because it’s so simple to style. Plus I can airdry it and limiting heat on my hair is also something that I want to focus on. Below is a full list of the other hairstyles I want to try while transitioning.

Transition Hairstyles
- Braidouts
- Twistouts
- Flat Twistout
- Rollerset
- Flexi Rods Set
- Perm Rods Set
- Bantu Knots
- Braids
- Twists
- Cornrows
- Buns
- Wigs (I’ll utilize this option more if I get tired of the above)

My hair is probably tip-toeing around my shoulder right now. In about 3 months or so, when it gets longer, I may start playing around with braidouts and twistouts.

Looks great!

Thanks Stacey! I say go for it, they are super easy to do and I can make them last for a week.

I’m curious… What do you use to do your braidouts? What’s your leave-in conditioner? Moisturizer? Sealer? etc…

The only leave-in I use is Lacio Lacio. I’ve been experimenting with my flat twistout (I use the same mixes for my braidouts) and think I just found my staple moisturizing setting mix. I placed water, glycerin, and aloe vera in a water bottle and sprayed onto each section. Then I sealed the section with coconut oil. I have a feeling that’s going to be my final mix.

I just did one last night and will take it down tomorrow… will post pics of the result and a more detailed post to my blog before I go to school tomorrow.

I’ve been transitioning for 8, almost 9 months now. Recently, I’ve tried and fell in love wit straw sets and twist outs but can’t seem to make them last for longer that about 4 days without it starting 2 look matted. Other than a satin cap, what can I do 2 make my styles last and what suggestion do u have for a daily moisturizer?

When it comes to natural hair we all have several different patterns that need to be maintained differently. I recommend you ladies experiment with several different moisturizing creames to find which one work best with your hair type. A moisturizer with Shea butter included is a plus.

Sew In weaving extensions are also a great way to transition to your natural hair. The braids will allow your scalp and hair to rest.

For the past 6 months, I’ve been experimenting with different braiding styles, and I now have a sew-in weave while I grow out my relaxer. I’m going to confront my fears and go natural. I’ve always liked flexi rods and will try it tonight on my weave.

I am at my third month of transition. I am noticing that some parts of my hair is growing faster than other parts. Is that normal with transition? I am also noticing different textures. Please explain.

Im currently in month 6 of my transition…and I can say that my journey has been interesting. Sew-ins have been my hair savior. I love the twist/braid outs, but they always turn out frizzy. I recently found a mango and lime Jamaican product for transitioning hair and I love it. Happy transitioning to everyone.
