    Twisting Tutorial Time

    Sometimes I come across a skill I lack and my first thought may be, “I’ll never be able to do that.” And if I don’t try, then bam, there it is. I won’t be able to do it. But with patience and practice, [almost] anything is possible! So here are a few vids with flat twists or…

    Marie Young of Good Lookn Out writes, “Any natural knows that life wouldn’t seem, in any sense, normal unless you had your bookmarked list of online natural hair bloggers at your fingertips.
