Bless my soul! I have THREE natural heads to comb in my house: mine and my two adorable little mini naturalistas. Needless to say, wash day, or should I say wash week, can be a bit of a challenge. To keep my sanity, I like to do styles that are simple, easy and require little maintenance. Check out this super easy twisted ponytail style for your little one below. This style can be done in 30 minutes or less (depending on hair length and density) and can last all week!
I started with freshly shampooed and conditioned hair. I added a bit of extra virgin coconut oil and a water and Care Free Curl Gold (yes, I said Care Free Curl!) mix and gently detangled in small sections. I like the look of connecting ponytails for a little fun. To smooth the ponytails and hold the twists, I used Beautiful Textures Curl Control Defining Pudding. It’s very light and does NOT flake or make hair stiff. Oh, and of course we needed a little bang. I parted off a small section in the front and made mini twists for a cute fringe. Add barrettes on the ends (because, little girls should be little girls) and voila! Super easy. I may touch up the ponytails and add a little moisturizer and oil midweek, but that’s it. You can remove the ponytail holders at night (prevents dust from collecting underneath the bands and makes changing out colors in the morning before school MUCH faster) and re-twist in the morning. I personally usually go a day or two before I do this.
Easy, right? Happy styling!
