Approximate time needed: 1 hour and 30 minutes (that is from beginning to end, which includes stopping along the way to take care of my baby girl. If you don’t have to stop then I would say maybe 45 minutes total).
How I achieved this look:
Step 1: Start with a clean, damp head of hair (shampooed, co-washed, and conditioned with my lotions and oils).
Step 2: Section hair into 4 different sections: 2 in the front and 2 in the back. (In a “t” formation)
Step 3: Add additional oil to fingertips and begin making medium sized twist all throughout each section.
Step 4: (optional) Add 3 1/2 inch perm rods to the ends of each individual twist. I didn’t even roll half way up. I only did enough to secure the rod to the hair.
Step 5: Cover with a scarf and let it be.
Step 7: Thoroughly oil your fingers and take your twist a loose.
Step 8: Pin and style as you please.
Things that you will need:
-Water Bottle – Oil of your choice -bobby pins
-3 1/2 inch perm rods (optional) – scarf
I was pleased with the final outcome, and I like that it did not take a lot of time to achieve this look. My goal was to create a style that I could keep up and rock for 5-6 days. At night I moisturize with lotion, seal with oil, re-twist my hair, and put on the scarf. These steps will help me keep this style nice until my co-wash day.
I hope that this was helpful. I encourage you to try new things with your hair. Whether it’s a success or a flop, I encourage you to rock it like you did it on purpose. Have a blessed day everyone.
