Mini Single Curly Braids :Children's Style

I think the winter season is the best time to give our hair a break by doing long term protective styles. That's one of the reasons I put little L's hair in mini braids, which I hoping will last for a month.We are also taking a break from the beads. They are harmless to little L's hair but I just want to give her ends a break for a month or so.

The Process;
  • Her hair was cowashed and sealed with Kinky curly Knot today (mixed with Aloe Vera Juice and coconut oil).
  • Once her hair was dried in 8 flat twists, I placed an off center part in the front of her hair and put single braids following that direction
  • About 1/4 of an inch of her ends were left out.

  • I sprayed her hair with water mixed with aloe vera juice and coconut oil, added a little knot today and the curling custard, to enhance her curls
  • Once her hair was dry, I applied very little olive oil to the ends.

Night Routine:
Her braids are moisturized and the ends are sealed with oil. I then cornrow the braids to keep them stretched. The ends have to stay stretched, if not , they will tangle and break off.
