The day before school started we had just returned for a week and a half of traveling. Des' hair had been in box braids with two cornrows across the front of her head. Des had been swimming, playing and not always sleeping with her bonnet so we were in for a treat when it came time to take her hair down.

In order to make the process easier and to help restore some of the moisture in her hair I put a oil blend on her hair/scalp to help the braids loosen up. Des had a few along nape of her neck that were really bad and we hadn't noticed up to that point cause we were going non stop. Thankfully the oil blend coupled with the conditioner in the shower helped tremendously. The braids were left in during the co washing portion and taken down once she got done.
I moisturized her hair and we opted to do something quick since we were tired and it was late. I let Des search the site of my fellow blogging friends and she came across a style she wanted to try on Goldilocks*n*Me's page. Des had chosen to do two slide braids on each side that connected to a 3 strand twist in the back. This style entailed doing some things we have never done before but we gave it a shot and loved it.

Des started her first day of school with a fresh new 'Do and a smile on her face too. She came back to me and reported that people at school loved her hair. We ended up keeping her hair that way for that week and just changing the pony tailed portion from a 3 strand twist to a fish tail braid as the week progressed.
