Doing Flat Twists is one of the braiding techniques I always wanted to learn. I know how to do cornrow braids, which uses an underhand upward motion to create rows of braids that appear to be lifted off the scalp. I also know how to do two strand twists, sister twists, and single strand twists.
I decided to start on the left side of my daughter's head. I started flat twisting taking strands of hair from the right section over the left section. That didn't work so well for me. Maybe it's a right-handed left-handed thing.
That gave me an idea.... why don't I start from the right side? So, I did... and it was so much easier to flat twist, and also faster.
