Mini Twists Update

Syd has had her mini twists in for 9 days now and they are holding up wonderfully. We decided to wet her hair about a day after the twists were finished. She likes the look of shrunken twists best, so she achieved that look by simply getting her hair wet and then adding a bit of moisturizer to replace what she had rinsed away. The twists shrank and plumped up, and Syd was happy with the results.

She hasn't done much with her hair in the last week. Instead, she has chosen to take a break from thinking about her hair and just wear the twists down most of the time.We did pull the very front back into a half-up style before school this morning, though. Here's what she looked like just before heading out the door.

Syd wears a satin cap to sleep at night to reduce frizz. However, she's been wearing hoodies (with the hood up a lot) now that it's getting colder, so the frizziness is starting to show up. I'm sure we'll start styling the twists more often now in order to keep the twists but hide the frizzies, so be looking for another update before too long!


  1. Wow her hair looks great! I don't see the frizz that you speak of but if you say so. Can't wait to see what you do next.

  2. Haha! The frizz is hides well in the half-up style. :D

  3. This looks really great. I am thinking mini twist for my daughter this weekend, but like others I am scared of the frizz.

  4. Gorgeous! My 6 year old loves wearing mini twists. They are much quicker than braids to do and they're very low maintenance and cute! For those worried about frizz just make sure your child sleeps with a satin bonnet or at least sleep on a satin pillowcase. I also don't wet my daughter's hair too much while they are in because that causes excessive frizz for us.
