I wanted to share with you all what was done to Des' hair for week 6 of KandyLand Kurls Protective Style Challenge. I must first say I drew inspiration for this style from Shay of Mainly Braids and I also drew my instruction from her video which she did to show her technique. I had never actually set out to do rope twists till I saw her video.
Now I need to give you the details. First off, Des co washed and detangled her own hair in the shower. Once she got out I sectioned her hair and applied Cush Cosmetics Hydrate Me, followed by It's Perfectly Natural Marsh-Aloe Transitioning Creme and The Pomade Shop Vanilla Pomade. Once I worked the products into her hair I began twisting her hair. I did her whole head like this in medium size rope twists. I was very happy with the way they turned out with the exception that there was a lot of scalp showing do to the parting.
These rope lasted the entire week, we did apply It's Perfectly Natural Turn Me Loose spray leave in conditioner daily as part of the requirements for the protective style challenge.
Des was able to wear these twists in a pony tail to keep them from rubbing on her clothes. She really enjoyed how they looked as well.
Until the next time... Stay Blessed.
