Pony Tail Braidout

Ponytail-Braidout


I washed N's hair the night before, and when I finished detangling I put her hair into 5 large braids, and put on her satin cap, then she went to sleep. In the morning I took out her braids carefully, and made a halo styled braid by making two cornrows in the front of her hair. Then I placed the unraveled hair that was braided, in a ponytail and fluffed it up a bit, and it became a cute little braid out. I didn't use products, I just braided when it was wet.

Approx time. 10 minutes





Cool Hair Facts :- )

Female hair grows more slowly than Male hair.  <---- sucks huh? Men don't even put as much effort, and there hair grows faster... not fair ;-(

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL

Funky Colorful Hair

Okay this is our funky style lol "N" and most little girls, have never experienced having or wearing a hair color, other than their own. So to have a little fun, I added a clip on with strands of pink and purple hair to her bun.
Here's how to achieve this look..


I parted her hair going straight across, Starting with the top section I made 3 braids on each side of her hair (total of 6). 


Next, I made 5 horizontal parts in the middle of her hair. I began cornbraiding the first section starting from the left. Then the second section I started cornbraiding from the right, and I connected the first braid into the second. (and I continued the pattern, braid going left, then braid going right, I hope you get what I mean). I continued doing this until all 5 sections were connected and braided.


Then finally I gathered the back of her hair and made a bun, and I added the colored hair piece in the back.


Products used: Wide Tooth Comb
                       Hair Scrunchie (to tie the hair)
                       Crayola Colorful Hair Clip

Total Time: 40-45 minutes

SpotLight: London & Princess

1.)Your name and little one's name/nickname?

-My name is 'London' and my daughter's name is 'Princess.'

2.)Whats your haircare routine?

-Every two weeks I wash her hair with Suave Professionals Almond & Shea Butter Shampoo and condition with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner. I towel dry for a couple of minutes so the water won't be dripping all over the place. While it's still wet, I part it into sections and spray Soft & Beautiful Just For Me! 2-In-1 Conditioner Detangler in it and detangle with my fingers, then go through it with a wide tooth comb, and then go back through it with a brush. By the time I'm done, her hair is nearly dry so I start to style!

3.)What products are you currently using?

-The products I use while styling is BB Oil Moisturizer (for shine), HEHH Conditioner (for lightness), and Kids Organic Gro Strong Triple Action Stimulating Therapy (to reduce frizziness). I mix the BB Oil Moisturizer and HEHH conditioner together and apply to the hair.

4.)Do you use (or will or will not use) heat/chemicals on the child's hair?

-When I wanted to try the straight look on her hair, the cosmetologist used a flat iron and I've used a flat iron on her hair a couple of times after that, BUT NOT OFTEN. For her hair like hers, I DEFINITELY do not suggest using heat on it a lot. It definitely dries it out quick! I'm not using chemicals though. EVER!

5.)Do you use heat/chemicals on your hair?

-YES! Unlike her, I have a different hair type. It requires chemicals (not saying it's nappy), but I've gotten quite use to perms. I would love to try the natural thing though.

6.)What was the worst hair tip you have received?

-I don't think I've received any...YET.

7.)Do you cut/trim the hair? if so how often?

-I've personally never trimmed her hair, although it's time for me to start. I believe she's only had her hair trimmed twice in her life (which is bad, I know, lol).

8.)What is some hair advice you would like to share?

-Hmm, hair advice...I'm not a licensed hair stylist so I personally can't give out advice to people. I'm believe I'm an amateur myself. I can say though, if you have trouble braiding/cornrowing hair there are Youtube videos out there to help! I haven't had to use them, but some has and it seemed to work. Also, if you have problems doing two/three strand twists, again, Youtube videos. I learned how to do them on there and they are DEFINITELY helpful!

Cool Hair Facts :-)

-The average person has around 150,000 strands of hair (wow !! but who in their right mind, would count them all !!! LOL)

New Barbie Line

Wow its about time!!! I'm so happy that Barbie has released a *New Line* of African American Barbies, with various shades of brown skin.



So to all the Mom's of girls, lets make sure this Christmas, we support this new line of Barbie. Hopefully they will continue making dolls that resemble all kinds of people with various skin tones and body shapes.

*SpotLight* Miss "A"

*SpotLight*
Little Miss "A"
"A" is my baby sister, she is 12 years old and is very creative in visual arts, she loves music and most of all Michael Jackson lol
Its hard to find a style for pre-teens/teens you don't want them to look like a baby and you don't want them to look too grown. But this style is cute and age appropriate, this is how you achieve the look.

Start by making 4 cornbraids in the middle of the hair, and braid half-way down.
Next, Make 4 parts (going down) on the sides. Begin braiding the first part going down. Make the next braid going up, and make sure to connect the first braid into the next braid, by continuing the same cornrow. Continue doing this until all the 4 parts are braided, in the pattern, going up & down.

The last step, flat iron the hair in the back, and add some curls.

HeadBand Braid with Ponytail Twisties








This style is pretty simple, I started off with "N's" hair completely detangled. I make a part starting in the back of her hair.



Next I make a part going completely around her hair then I begin cornbraiding going in a complete circle.



The rest of the hair I secure in a ponytail and then I took a small section and begin twisting it, and continued making individual twists. Finally I secure them with Daisy Pink Translucent Barrettes from The Curly Princess Hair Boutique at  http://curlyprincesshairboutique.com/

-Here are a few pics of "N" with Curly Princess Hair Boutique accessories. We used the Jumbo Pink Tone Mix Hair Beads & Daisy Pink Translucent Barrettes.






Review: "N" *LOVES* the hair accessories especially the Daisy Pink Barrettes, she was walking all over the house swaying her ponytail full of barrettes and listening to them bang together, she even helped snap a few of them on her twists. They are definitely easy to place on the hair and are so cute!! And I LOVE the Jumbo Pink Beads, I think they look good especially with larger sized braids, and for those who are buying Christmas things early, hair snaps and bows make cute stocking stuffers for Christmas.
