So, my daughter has been begging me to do a style that allows her to showcase her hair for a long time now. “Mummy pleeeeaaasseeee” are her words from week to week followed by a long sad face when the words “not today” has been heard.
Honestly! I prefer to keep my daughters hair tucked and protected and apart from to reduce tangling and knotting, I am just not really keen on letting her hair out. But the truth is, whats the point of having beautiful hair if its always tucked away. So on this one occasion I decided to surprise her. You should have seen her face when she saw herself in the mirror. If a smile could express a million words!!!!!!!
I was going to use a hairband to separate the cornrows from her natural hair, but had a light bulb moment and decided to use her own hair to accomplish that look instead. So after parting the amount of hair I wanted to leave out at the back, I did one massive cornrow. Then for the front, each cornrow was completed using an elastic-band to secure them in place. Upon completion of front cornrows, the open ends of the cornrows were then braided together from end to end. No particular direction required, any way you want it to go is great, then tucked and pinned at the very back of the head so the hair covers it. Undo your massive cornrow at the back, use your fingers to separate strands and VOILA!!!!!! style accomplished.
At the end of the day the hair was cornrowed, we didn’t have the hair out again, due to the level of shrinkage and tangling, so indeed it was ‘hair today…gone tomorrow’…haha!!
Putting a smile on my daughters face was priceless, making this one day style was so worth it.
why don’t you try it and do something that puts a smile on your child’s face?
