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.
