I love my natural hair and the styles that I can do. I have now mastered what styles to wear each season. Now that it is Spring and Summer is near, I will be doing a lot of protective hairstyles because I don’t want my hair to frizz and turn into a big afro after doing a twist or braid out. The humidity in the DMV area is crazy…well it seems like it to me. Lol.
I’ve started a new job recently that I have to wake up early for. I knew that I would not want to deal with my hair much in the morning, which could cause me to be late to work. I can’t stand being late to work. So I thought of styles that would last, be easy to maintain, cute and wearable to work. I figured that I will be doing a lot of twists this Spring/Summer.
So I’m starting off with this natural twists updo.
I usually wash my hair every weekend so I only had this style in for a week.
Here is a picture video of the process to achieve this style.
What I did
1. Washed my hair the night before styling
2. Put an oil blend I made on my hair
3. Did individual large braids
4. Went to sleep with a black bonnet and let hair air dry overnight.
The next day my hair was dry and ready to style.
What I used
Three mirrors, a rattail comb, 2 packs of Batik Reggae hair, shea butter based mix I made, and 3 clips.
It took about 5 hours to do it myself.
