As the frizzies come, there is really no way to avoid it completely. Here are a few tips to help minimize the appearance of frizzies, and help to keep the style looking fresh & new.
This is so simple, but does a really good job at hiding away the frizzies. I created a quick side ponytail. But styling the twists with a ponytail, pigtails, buns, french braid, or even cornrow it. All of these styles can be created on the twists, help to hide the frizz, and it's cool to switch up the style.
-Slick It Down-
For N's edges/baby hair I used a small amount of Eco Styler Gel and smoothed it down with a soft brush. It kind of reminds me of these 90's styles hahaha. But hey! It helps keep her braids looking fresher.
Looks kind of like a big pineapple sitting on top of her hair. As silly as it may look, this method helps to preserve the twists. You simply put the hair into a high loose bun. Then you are all set to go to sleep, when you awake, remove and shake.
- Cover it-
Another great way to hide frizz is to place a bandanna over the hair overnight. Make sure it is on snug to help lay the hair down. I leave it on overnight, but if you do not have the time leave it on for a few hours. This will help lay the frizzy hair down. I usually have the bandanna underneath her satin cap.
Finally, if she is playing around the house or rolling on the ground. I will have her wear her scarf around the house, so this helps to protect the style.
