Flat twisted styles and other protective styles are a necessity for many naturals and I am no exception. I’m on an unofficial protective style challenge due to my hair growth being stunted. I have done flat twisted hairstyles before but this is my first time trying loose chunkier flat twists and I really liked the style. I had to use larger parting to achieve it all and I personally like the style a lot better with really stretched hair. I blow dried my hair and ran a warm flat iron over large sections for more elongation.
