Two Strand Twists
Syd and I are in the middle of a hectic couple of weeks. Our calendar is packed and we don't have a lot of time for hair. I didn't have much time for hair tonight, either, so I decided to put her hair into 2 strand twists. This is one of our go-to styles because it's easy, much quicker than the more complex styles, and well....Syd loves her hair this way.
She co-washed her hair while she was in the shower and came to me so I could do the style. I made a small side part in the front and then started just grabbing sections of hair to twist. I detangled each section as I went instead of detangling all the hair before I began. I didn't part out these sections, either. I just grabbed and twisted, working from one side of her head to the other.
To each section, I added a very small amount of Darcy's Botanicals Madagascar Vanilla Styling Cream, followed by a bit of shea butter. I combed it through with a denman and twisted.
We'll probably remove the twists in a few days so Syd can wear a twist out for a day or two. One more reason I love twists...we'll get a bonus style when the twists come out!
