So the last time, I posted about little L's hair, it was about mini braids. Those lasted for a month! But they were also screaming "take us out" by the end if week 3. While I was taking them out and since her hair was stretched, I decided to dust her ends. The last time her hair was trimmed was about four months ago.
After the braids were taken out, we washed and conditioned her hair with the Shea Moisture carrot and mango products for kids. OMG!!!!! Love love love!!! Those things, especially the conditioner have to come in a bigger jar. The conditioner is just awesome! Anywho, back to the post. I used the Shea moisture hibiscus line detangler to keep her hair moist while I was braiding it. I used the Zoe line Shea Soufflé to twist the last 1/4 of an inch of each braided section. I always twist the ends of her braids because braiding the ends would make the braids hard to take out.
She has about 16 braids altogether. I like the fact that the braids stretch her hair better than twists and that means less detangling when the time comes for that process.
I really hope these can last for two weeks.
Her ends will be sprayed daily with the Shea Moisture hibiscus Detangler for kids and sealed with Coconut oil. Once a week, the whole head will be slightly misted with the same detangler and carefully sealed with jojoba/grapeseed oil. The satin bonnet is used nightly to keep her hair moisturized and protected from rubbing against anything. Her hair will not be washed during this two week period.
