Curly Hair Do #1

My daughter had her little friend over one night and I couldn't resist playing with her hair. Normally, her hair is a much tighter curl, but she has been having it relaxed. While it makes it much more manageable, there are some styles I used to be able to do, that I no longer can. But hopefully, this (and the future posts) will help some of you out there working with curly hair.

I'll leave the cornrows to the pros. But for a darling, easy do, and to pull back the short hairs that she cut herself, I did five little Pixie Flips (topsy tails...I just like the sound of Pixie Flips!) The rest I left down and simple....for now.



Isn't she cute?!

I don't claim to be an expert by any means...but as with any curly hair (natural or otherwise) CONDITIONING is essential.


Stay tuned for more curly hair styles!
