I seperated out a small section in the back and pulled up the rest with clips. Then I sprayed the section with water and added a small bit of natural conditioner(more on that in tomorrow's post). Then, I gently combed with a wide-tooth comb. We call it a pick-comb. ;) I started at the bottom and moved my way toward the scalp, then used a regular comb after the tangles were mostly worked out. It was quick going once we got started. This next picture is of the hair de-tangled.
And then I thought I'd add this picture of her hair after the curls started to perk back up.
After I was finished detangling, I parted out some sections at the top. The first was a small section in the middle and set back a couple inches from the hairline. Next I parted out the side into a triangle going from her ear up to the middle section and then leaving a bit of hair in between this and the middle section.
I did the same on the other side and added french braids to these sections, continued the braids a little way out and then secured with an elastic. Though, later I decided to take the ends out, so you could just use a clip at the end of the braid.
Now, you have a section of hair that is in front of and on the sides of that middle section. I used this to create a mini bouf in the front.
I simply pulled the hair back lightly and added another elastic just behind the first in that middle section. Then, I pulled the braids up with it too. Last, I added a flower clip and we were all done!
Such a cutie!
Oh, I did add a little bit of a light gel and fluff up the curls a little. I think I could have fluffed them a little more honestly... maybe next time! ;)
Lol, I had to add this one in! It shows the back of The Diva's hair really well, but it also shows what I found in nearly every picture I took that day... Little Miss running around playing, with crrrazy hair! ;)
Okay, one last picture from the front... Isn't she a doll?!
