There are days when I just won’t be bothered about much hair handling especially if I have a lot of things to do on my schedule. Such a day was yesterday. I wore this hairstyle mainly because I was busy and it was a day before wash day so I thought of just putting my hair up into a bun. But there was a problem. Not a new problem though but something I was hoping had resolved. This problem is, my hair is not long enough to hold it all in a bun at the back of my head. And since I did not want a high bun, I had to make do with this “twist” to the bun and I mean it literally. Today I want to share with you how I went around doing this to come up with something with the length that I have. This style is also great as a protective style because the ends are tucked away and protected from the weather elements.
What I did was this:
- I started off with an old twist out and I kept my hair somehow stretched out using the banding method for the night.
- Sprayed my entire head with water and
pplied some whipped Shea Butter to the
- ends mainly.
- Parted my hair into three sections as shown in the pics
- Flat twisted the two front sections.
- Took a scrunch/pony holder and put the back section into a bun
- Took another scrunch to hold the ends of the front twists into the bun
- Used pins to tuck the ends of my hair on the bun in
- Smoothed the edges using a tooth brush
- Tied a satin scarf for about 20 minutes to smoothen the edges some more
There it was. I was ready to go and it took me under 5 minutes to do. My ends were moisturized and tucked away for the day and for the night too because I only took down the bun when I co-washed my hair this morning.
