Hair Update : New Protective Style

Hi ladies!

I pray all is well with you all.

I wanted to share with you all my new protective style!

So after finishing with my exams, and being tired of always covering my hair I decided to finally put my hair in a protective style. That Saturday night, I had an idea what I wanted to do, but still did not have a precise style in mind. So I first stated off by doing a mohawk stlyle with flat twists. Then I was left with the front. 

At first I put in twists in the front, but halfway through I realized it did not look so nice so I undid them and decided to just flat twist. After a few minutes of pondering, I came up with the idea to pin the sides of the front flat twists to the side along with the twists from the mohawk. I also rolled the ends of the mohawk flat twists and pinned them down. And voilĂ !! I really love this style and I was quite impressed with what I did. I have to admit, this is by far the best flat twist protective style I have come up with since I went natural. Though it does not look so neat and might have to redo them soon, I am so happy and I cannot wait to perfect my twisting skills.

Items used :

- 2 mirrors
- bobby pins
- rat tail comb
- clamps and bands to help separate hair

Products used :

- daily moisturizer
- leave in conditioner
- sealing butter

Time spent :

I'm not really sure but I think it's about one hour thirty or almost two hours.

Well that's it! I am finally wearing my hair out and I am absolutely enjoying it!

If you have any suggestions or idea or just want to share your opinion, please tell!!!

Stay blessed and funky sisters! 


  1. This is gorgeous! I wish I could flat twist (or cornrow) the back of my hair. I would be able to try a lot more hairstyles then. Maybe I'll practice more so, I can wear something like this. Thanx.

  2. Thank you so much sis!! Seriously, when I first started my hair journey, I couldn't flat twist! I forced myself to try over an dover again and well, I started flat twisting and I am still learning. There are also tutorials on youtube that can help! GO for it sis! I'm sure you'll come up with very creative styles!
