With me working the night shift, and not being able to fix my little one's hair in the morning, I have to frequently resort to long-term protective styling for her.
This time around, I was pressed for time, she needed her hair done and I had some Marley hair at home. Installing Marley hair only involves parting out the section and twisting as opposed to cornrows that require a more complex parting and more time doing the cornrows.
As shown, her hair was parted very big. She only has 32 twists. Each twist was made with three strips of Marley hair but the edges were done with two strips. I used the invisible method, AKA, twisting from the roots. I used yarn to "corkscrew" her ends and dipped them in hot water for a subtle curly look ( I was very careful and she was so mature about it).
I am hoping these will last for three weeks due to the size.
As always, I do not wash this kind of protective style. Her hair was washed and pampered before these were installed. So her hair can survive without being washed for the next three weeks. I will certainly keep her hair moisturized on a regular basis.
What about you? Do you have kids and how do you style their to protect it from frequent manipulation?
Thanks for visiting! Till next time, take care and God bless!
