I’m back with another update on my little cousin, Jennifer’s hair. I did her hair after the holidays, about 6 weeks or so after our first vlog. I want to help nurture her hair back to health and give readers some little girls hairstyle ideas with this series as well. This week we went for two strand twists up with a braidout, which she loved (although as you’ll see in the video below she did NOT trust me to come up with a cute style):
One of the things I notice most about Jennifer’s hair is that it is most broken off around the edges and perimeter from wearing constant ponytails. I chose this style to keep her hair up off her clothing. I wish I were able to do her hair weekly, but once every 4-6 weeks is the most I can get down to her. Now that I’ve built her confidence in my styling ability, next time we’ll have a talk about keeping it moisturized. I plan on giving her a spray moisturizer – something she can apply quickly and easily. After she begins to do that consistently, we’ll add sealing. Baby steps…
Her braids hadn’t dried completely so the resulting braidout was a bit frizzy, but I still loved the style. And so did she!
For those of you who have teenaged girls, how did you introduce healthy hair practices to them?
