It’s summertime and I know protective styles are the easiest and convenient way to eliminate doing your hair everyday. However, try something different !Try out this simple and cute technique that will leave you with a head full of defined curls! So if you want a style with minimal styling in the mornings this is for you!
Step 1: Wash and condition your hair ( finger detangle while washing) then lightly dry with a cotton t-shirt, so your hair is still damp. I prefer to use Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner.
Step 2: Separate your hair into four sections with duck clips and grab your favorite leave-in/detangler and start adding to your first section. Next, take your wide tooth comb or Denman brush and starting from the ends comb out each section carefully, I recommend Kinky-Curly Knot Today leave- in/ detangler to easily comb through your hair.
Step 3: Now that your hair is combed out put it back into four sections and start separating. Depending on the size you want, take some curling cream and start twisting your hair. After, grab at least 40-60 perm rods (whatever size you prefer) and roll the twist all the way up. Take a satin bonnet or scarf and wrap your hair and let air dry over night.
Step 4: Check if your hair is fully dry then take out the perm rods. Rub your hands with coconut oil and begin untwisting your hair. Separate the twist careful to reduce frizz and to your liking.
Step 5: Tease your hair with a pick and style to your liking.
