Hair Update : Another Protective Style

Hi ladies!

I pray all is well with you all!

Earlier today, I put in another protective style and I wanted to share it with you.

I was actually supposed to have done it on Saturday but I didn't get to. No, I did not wear a roll and tuck style to church on Sunday as I'd thought I would because after battling with my hair a few times, I realized the roll and tuck was a style that needed practice.

Anyway, back to the new protective style. It's a bit similar to the last one but in the front I put in two strand twists and the back is totally different.

I did it hurriedly and made the flat twits a bit big because wash day is this week and I'm only going to wear the style for a few days.
I pinned the ends of the flat twists towards the front with bobby pins. I am happy with the style and was surprised that the two strand twists in front look better than I thought they would. Nevertheless, if I were to do this style again, I would work on improving the style.

Items used :

- 2 mirrors
- bobby pins
- rat tail comb
- clamps and bands to help separate hair

Products used :

- daily moisturizer
- leave in conditioner
- sealing butter

Time spent :

(More or less) 1 hour and 30 minutes.

That's it!

If you have any suggestions, additions do share!

Stay blessed and funky sisters!
