I finally did it!
After trying off and on for several years (with ChocoLatte from NP as my inspiration) one day about a week ago, I reached in the back of my head and flat twisted up. Up from my nape toward my crown. Yep up. Finger placement and what to do with my hair all coming to me out of the blue just like when I was trying to teach myself how to three-strand twist a couple of years ago.
This skill is show nuff gonna come in handy. I have several styles that I’d love to try but couldn’t because I didn’t know how to do this and my dag gone sister is too (selfish…ok, that’s not the right word…hmmm lazy, yeah that’s better) to do it for me. I’m also rather beside myself with elation cause I’ve been wearing my hear in an up do all summer long. This has prompted me to play with my kitchens a lot. They’re subject to knots and single-strand knots like you wouldn’t believe. Then I started picking at them to break them off (cause I hate them soooo much). And before I knew it, my back edges looked like they were chewed up and spit back out, prompting my mom to ask me if my hair was breaking back there.
Well, hmmm…were they really starting to look that bad?
Anyhoo, now that I can flat twist up, I can catch all the broken off hairs into the twist. And now when I feel back there there’s nothing sticking out, and that keeps them from rolling and knotting up AND now there’s nothing with me to play with and deliberately break off.
My kitchen have always had the potential to grow fairly long and now this should help em out tremendously.
Whoo hoo me!
