Twist Hairstyle for girls
We love the way twist look on my niece, it’s a style that we see often in natural hair blogs. When you search for black hairstyles whether it’s for adults or children the style comes up for both. With a tighter curl pattern this is a protective style that works for my mixed kid’s hair we haven’t had as much luck with this style lasting so when Misha picked it as her Pinterest inspiration I felt hesitant. Nonetheless, we gave it a try and found a solution to keeping the twist from unraveling in her loose curls.
We always start with clean hair and set our curls using the LOC method. I have written about our deep conditioning and protein treatments before so remember to rotate those longer wash day routines in as necessary. This week we did a regular co-wash and product setting. Here is our product line up and wash day steps:
This wash day landed on a Sunday and it was a warm winter weekend. Consequently, the neighbor kids began house jumping. Three neighbor friends came over to play. Making Misha very anxious to get done with her hair and down to the fun with the rest of the girls.
Here is the Pin she chose for inspiration. The solution we found to keep the twist from unraveling on her looser curly hair is to add a braid at the tip of the twist before we secure with a rubberband.
We wore this style for the full wash cycle (6 days). It did get frizzy towards the end of the week. We simply removed the top hair tie, spritz the hair and smoothed the edges. and combined all the twist into one ponytail on day 4. On day 5 we cut out the rubber bands on the ends with a seam cutter and we work the twist out until the next wash day.
