My daughter has been one of my natural hair inspirations, and though we have different textures and she’s a child I regularly find myself adopting some of my haircare practices on her hair. One way I attempt to keep her hair moisturized and healthy is to utilize protective or low-maintenance styling during the week. That includes braids, twists or any other style that does not require daily brushing and combing. Also, I spritz her hair with water and olive oil each night to keep the style moisturized and she sleeps on a satin pillow. I’m not the best braider or stylist in the world, but I do what I can, while trying to avoid rubber bands, tight ponytails and grease. Check out Rea’s latest look: flat twists and two strand twists:
This is Rea after a trip to the pool and shampoo.
I started with three twists hanging down in the front. Sleepy head didn’t last 20 minutes.
One-fourth of the way through.
I had to pull her “bang” back because it was bothering her.
