Protective Style Challenge: (week 3)

We took down N's first mini twists. I must admit I'm glad we tried that style. It lasted a lot longer than box  braids. It could of lasted longer, but the frizzies were driving me insane. I have to work on a better method to maintain them. For the take down process, I started in the middle of her hair, and un-twisted them. 

This is the perfect area to start taking down a style like this. If you need to go out, you can quickly cover the middle section with the hair from the front, sides, and back, and put it into a bun. 
As show below.

The take down wasn't bad, and she didn't have many knots, it was pretty easy to unravel the knots. I added a little oil to my fingers, to help glide my fingers down the twists. All together it took around a hour and a half to get all the twists down. Next we washed her hair, deep conditioned it, moisturized, and sealed. I left her hair in 6 braids overnight to air dry. The following afternoon I stretched her hair by banding it. (Which means sectioning the hair and adding hairbands down the entire section.)  This helped to make her hair semi-straight, for our next protective style.

Products Used:
Darcy Botanical Coconut &Hibiscus Oil (seal)

Bunned twists looks really pretty for some reason =)

I agree, the bunned twist is very pretty

I have such a hard time keeping C's hair moisturized in any style- mini twists and braids are a nightmare when it comes time to take them down. Even when I do big twists, her hair gets knotted because it's sooo dry! Ugh, it's frustrating. I love the twists on N's hair :)

I love the bunned twists! And great idea to start take-down in the middle. I'm forever camouflaging a half-in or half-out style because I didn't time things properly. Great tip!
