Flat Twists and Big Hair

Photobucket

Get the look:
  • First go *here to see how I detangled her hair after removing her cornrows.
  • All I did was add some Bee Mine Beeloved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer to her hair and fluffed her hair with my fingers, also gently removing any tangles I may feel with my fingers.
  • I parted a small section of her in the front middle part of her hair to begin flat twisting. I added a little more Bee Mine Beeloved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer to each section first.
    • Part a small section of hair out in the front. Split into two pieces.
    • Pinch a little hair off with your thumb and index (pointer) finger, add it to your right piece, then cross your right section under your left section.
    • Pinch a little hair off with your thumb and index finger, add it to your (new) right piece, then cross your right section under your left section.
    • Continue pinching hair off, adding it to your right section, then crossing under your left section.
    • Pinch, add, cross, pinch, add, cross.
  • I did a total of 4 loose flat twists in the front and secured them with cute little flower claw clips.

Figuring out where she wants to head first. Swings or slide?

  9. Oh I love A's hair. So pretty.
    A is doing her Dora Dora thing...she looks adorable.

    I think little girls are sooo beautiful when they wear their hair out. Beautiful, just beautiful. This is what beyond means in beads, braids and beyond. Taking it many steps beyond and still have beautiful. Great job.

  18. Hi, remember me? The white girl with long, straight, red hair?
    I love seeing big hair on anybody. It just makes me smile. (It's all thanks to you and A, by the way.) But I have yet to see so much big healthy hair in one place! :)
    Did you get any triple takes? Any comments?

  19. Beautiful hair! Puffs are awesome.

    This style would scare me on my girls if I didn't use Kinky Curly Curling Custard on their loose hairstyles. Tangles!

    How do you keep A's hair from tangling with this style?

  21. Look at A looking Fab from head to toe, I'm really loving the big hair and love that she loves and accepts her hair in its natural state, Too cute

  22. Thanks so much everyone!

    renee, No I don't. I think moisture is always key, especially when your child is wearing their hair out. Of course she will have some tangles here and there, but as long as I'm removing them properly (and I do!) we have no breakage. :)

    Aisha, this time I just put her hair in two big puffs. I just placed the ouchless ponytail holder over each side, didn't wrap it or anything.

    aemi, yes I remember you! Thanks so much. No we didn't get any comments or triple takes this time! lol :)

    cristiana, moisturizer! lots of it. :)
