Cornbraids & Two-Strand Twists

So far in this school year, we've been doing more protective styles. It saves us much more time in the mornings, vs styling daily. I brought a new product that has been helping tremendously with making her styles last longer, with very minimal frizzies. The cornbraid design was a freestyle. 

Here are some quick instructions on how I achieved this look.

1.) I made sure her hair was well detangled.

2.) I parted her hair from her temple, on the side of her head, to the other side.

3.) I started in the back of her hair. I took a section with my fingers, no comb, and sprayed it with my water/conditioner mix.

4.) I added some Eco Styler Gel, and Bee Mine Curly Butter to a section. Then I began making medium sized two-strand twists.

5.) When I reached the ends of the twists, I wrapped the hair around my finger a few times. This created a slight curl, and that helps to stop the twists from unraveling.

6.) I continued twisting until the entire back section was complete. Again, I did not use a comb to section the twists just my fingers.

7.) Next, beginning with the top section. I made a small "rainbow shaped" part on the side of her hair.

8.) I made a cornbraid around the rainbow shaped part. 

9.) I continued making 3 rainbow shaped braids.

10.) I finished the rest of the hair on top, by creating braids with a slight curve.

11.) To maintain the look I sprayed with Darcy's Botanical's Coconut & Hibiscus Oil Spray.

Such a cute style (",) looking forward to your eco styler gel review. I purchased some a few weeks ago because loads of people reccomended it but Im a bit skepticle about using it on my daughter because its a gel and worried it may dry out her hair. Your daughters hair looks in very good condition so just from that Im worrying less (",)

This is cute. I'm not that good when it comes to designing hair with cornrolls. My step-daughter has bone straigh hair... My 4 yr old has 2b hair and my 5 yr old has 3a/b hair... I usually just do one or two braids on their heads because my step-daughters & 4yr old won't stay in long, It usually just falls right out.
