I took out A's Criss Cross Cornrow Layers at the end of day 10. I decided to let her wear her hair out and in a puff for a few days before we restyled. If there's one thing I love, it's a big puff! If you have a child with long/thick hair, then you know sometimes it can be difficult to get it all smoothed down and in the ponytail holder. This time I tried something a little different. Instead of doing one puff, I did three ponytails, then placed another ponytail holder over the three and viola!
Get the look:
- After taking A's criss cross cornrows out, I added Bee Mine Bee Loved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer to A's hair and finger detangled.
- After finger detangling her hair, in small sections I added a little more Bee Mine Bee Loved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer to detangle her hair with a wide tooth comb. This provided her hair enough moisture, and me enough slip, to prevent breakage. Now, I don't think dry detangling is for everyone. This definitely takes time and I follow a certain technique. You have to be patient, take it slow, and be very gentle, otherwise you will cause breakage. When I detangle on "dry" hair I add a very moisturizing product, her hair must be stretched out, and I must finger detangle her hair well first, then I move on to a wide tooth comb.
- After fully detangling her hair, I parted from ear to ear, made a side part in the front, then added two ponytails in the front and one in the back. I used Bee Mine Curly Butter to smooth the hair into each ponytail. I used cloth covered ponytail holders and only wrapped them around each ponytail twice. I took another cloth covered ponytail holder and placed it over all three ponytails and there you have it-- One Big Natural Puff!
I also find that using a large Goody ouchless band, then wrapping it twice, and using it as a ponytail holder works very well!
Tune in Monday for a short video interview with A!
