Hey my good people! Hope you are all enjoying your summer, family, friends, food, beaches, vacays, significant others, jobs, and LIFE in general! I certainly thank God for mine!:)
I also am enjoying my protective style for the week. Yes, I said week 😄. I just needed something cute and quick to get me by a few days, to keep me from pulling it all out at the roots, with my bare hands.
I must say, this is one of the best hair quickies I’ve done and the first I’ve done with added hair.
I did this style earrrrly Saturday morning.
For this style I used a bit of pre-used Marley hair that I’d kept from marley twists I’d previously done. I didn’t need a full pack though;). I kept the hair product to a minimum, using only a little grapeseed oil to rub through my hair and massage into my scalp, and a spritz of Moroccan Argan Oil leave-in conditioner by Creme of Nature. I absolutely loooove their new line!! It makes my hair really soft and smells amazing!
I was careful not to WET my hair though. I only needed a light moisturizer so I wasn’t working with totally dry hair. I used a little of my Eco Natural Eco Curl ‘N Styling Cocktail for blending my hair in the marley hair. I like it because it’s light and doesn’t flake. It smells yummy too!
Remember, you need protection within your protective style.;)
I started at the bottom and worked my way upward and toward the front, flat twisting but using two strands. Basically cornrowing but using two strands of hair instead of three. I fed in the marley hair at the very start of the twist, (as soon as I held two strands of my hair to begin). I proceeded to twist all the way down the shaft until reaching the end, twisting the very end around my index finger in a looping motion.
Voila!! That’s it!;)
There’s very little maintenance (which I’m all for). I simply use a bit of Blue Magic coconut oil on my scalp and complete hairline, massage it in, mist my oil/water spray bottle ONCE onto the actual shaft, pat it a few times and satin scarf it at night.
I didn’t get to take immediate pics when it was freshly done so the ones you’re seeing are from the following Monday lol.
I’m still deciding on what hairstyle is next. I REALLY want a nice full weave with some good ole 3c-4c hair. Like Diana Ross huge😁.
Are you rocking any protective styles nowadays or “just letting it all hang out”?😜
Thanks for kicking it with me! Appreciate you suga!!!
