Style for the Week: Flat Twists Pigtails

First things first, things have gotten quite busy on my end and I realized I haven't posted in about two weeks. I wanted to, but I've been exhausted. It's been a year since I graduated college and I recently got my first full time job (the kind with benefits!) roughly in my area of study and it's a rather hectic field. Also my hours are a little strange and I get home slightly before midnight. It's taking some getting used to, but I'm getting the hang of it.

But now back to hair stuff. This style is a neater, more planned version of this flat twist style, when I set my hair in flat twists simply because I wanted to rock a twist out. While I still plan to do that this weekend for my little birthday trip out of town, I decided to do this a tad bit neater although I'll admit I still suck terribly at parting.

my terrible parting skills lol

I actually did this on damp hair. I washed my hair early monday morning, detangled, and used Knot Today as a leave in and put my hair in a wet bun. When I got home later my hair was still damp. I sectioned, added a little more Knot Today and twisted with Oyin's Whipped Pudding and coconut oil. Then I braided the twists together at the ends to create the pigtails. Hope you like!
