Saturday I had some individuals put in using the black “n” gold synthetic hair and they are looking bomb, I must say. Lol
7 hours, 7 hours. That is all that I can say. I will wash my scalp with conditioner only every week and I will do a tutorial for you when I do the first wash and post it.
This one is kind of a crazy picture, but I wanted you to see the back.
I love this style and i will do so many styles with these braids in, my ends are protected and I can co-wash as often as possible. Hope that you like.
Good morning out there in 4c land! How is everyone doing?
Yesterday I wore a Bantu knot out that was bomb.com (as Lestina would put it) so last night I just threw on a satin bonnet and went to sleep. This morning I took my water bottle and spritzed my hair all over and then flat twisted the sides and back and bobby pinned them up and let my hair just do what it do baby!
Have a great day!
I really like the Bantu knot out because it keeps my hair off of my shoulders and prevents the ends from rubbing against anything and becoming damaged. It may look short, but I got length!
So don’t underestimate a hairdo! Lol just kidding.
I pre-poo’d my hair overnight, washed, conditioned. Applied my leave in conditioner, sealed the moisture in with Shea Butter, applied the 4cnatural hair twist and define butter to my hair starting with my ends and grabbed hair and twisted. Tucked the hair around itself and placed a bobby pin on each knot. I removed the bobby pins before going to sleep and wore my hair in Bantu knots to church.
Today, I just untwisted each knot carefully and separated the hair.
Untwisted and fluffed:
Man I am loving this style. My curls are tight and not hanging onto my clothes and it has shine and is very soft.
Do you remember when Nicole got a new do? Well she decided to let the two strand twists out and leave the french braids in and it is gorgeous.
Looking good girl. She got great definition from leaving the twists in for a while. Great style.
Ms. Lestina has been doing her thang with the kinky twist hair. She has been washing and conditioning, then sealing. Applying a little bit of IC gel, grabbed the hair twisted and twirled. I call it a freestyle hairdo and they both look great on her.
Ok here is my favorite. The bang with the cloves is just killin’ it.
I am loving all of these different styles. Her ends are tucked away and she does not have to manipulate her hair at all while changing styles. This is a great protective style that you can change as often as you change your clothes. Hahahahahaha
Thank you for sharing Lestina!
Nicole has sent in her pictures of her new style that is off the chain. I love it and she is working it with a cute black dress.
Here are shots from different angles.
This is a great style and I am going to try it. Once I get it down, I will do a tutorial for everyone. This is stylish, yet elegant. You worked it girl!
Thank you Nicole for being a blessing to us and showing us a new style to try, while keeping our ends protected and retaining length.
Here is my daughter and I’s new year’s eve protective styles. It has been so cold and dry outside, so I gave our hair a little TLC with pre-pooing over night and then really pampering and layering the butters and oils. Then blow dried so that we could get braided up
I have added hair and my daughter is all real. It takes me like an hour to wash and condition her hair, it is so thick and long.
But yes we look good and our ends are protected so that we can retain some more length!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Good afternoon everyone,
Hope that your Christmas was awesome and that you blessed a family that is in need
I recently put two huge (dookey) french braids in my daughter’s hair using my twist & define butter. I used it on dry hair and let the braids stay in for about three days. I removed the two french braids and got this:
I just put it up into a ponytail and let her go. This style is so cute and girly for a little girl.
Man that was a simple one and her ends were protected and we did as less manipulation as we possibly could. So the next time that you have your daughter’s hair in two french braids and you need a different cute hairstyle and don’t have that much time, try a braid out or freestyle in the mirror with the hair.
Have a blessed day!
Just dropping in to show you my newest protective style I tried…a
faux bun with Marley braiding hair. I started on freshly washed and
conditioned hair that was blown out for maximum stretch. I slicked my
hair back into a ponytail with Olive Oil Smooth & Hold Pudding. I took
the braid hair and wrapped it around my ponytail, securing it with
bobby pins as I went along. I used one pack of hair. Ends remained
protected and the style lasted me for four days before I needed to
co-wash and re-moisturize. Marley braiding hair can be found at many
beauty supply/hair stores for between $3.99 to $9.99 per pack.
Nicole, thank you foreseeing your kinky hair as being healthy, by taking care of it today.
Great style. And her ends are hidden and protected.
