Cornrows with twists, curves and (a heart shape?)





So I love looking at other mom's valentine's day hair styles and decided to try it on my little one's hair. It was so hard to do.




 Kudos to those people that perfectly carve out a heart shape from their children's hair. Mine was not perfect at all but I tried...LOL,


I am all about protective styling especially for kids and fine hair. Her hair has gotten longer but it is not full. I wanted fuller piggy tails, so I added braiding hair to the ends, to make two strand twists and curled them using perm rods(dipped them in hot water)



The piggy tails are asymmetrical, in that one side contains more cornrows than the other. The bigger side, as shown above holds ends of cornrows, from the back, the right side and the front.



The smaller side, on the left side, has the "heart" and a couple of cornrows with curves, all ending in a small piggy tail

Here, the ends are left loose
And here, they are bound up in a ponytail




















Process:
 I pre-pood hair, covered with a plastic cap, with coconut oil for two hours. Then her hair  was washed in six sections using Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo and conditioned with Curl's Coconut Sublime Moisturizing Conditioner. I used Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque mixed with coconut oil as a leave in. This stuff is not heavy at all, her hair "drank" it up right away. I then, threaded her hair in 8 sections to stretch it out. Her hair was left in threads overnight.

Products used:
I am loving Shea Moisture these days(accessible and affordable....LOL)
So I used Shea Moisture Styling Milk to cornrow and sealed her ends with pure Shea butter.
I used 100% Kanekaleon hair to twist her ends.
Pin tail comb for parting
My fingers for detangling and separating her hair
Lots of patience and love (the kind needed for a four year old)

Overall, I am pleased with the result and she loves her hair. That's always a plus!
Hopefully, we can keep this style for two weeks.
