Style Update

Now for a quick update on Ms. Bree's hairstyle from last week.   
Like we've mentioned, this style is very simple and easy to do.  For us, this hairstyle only lasted a week.  However, if properly maintained, this hairstyle could last up to 2 weeks.

Daily maintenance:

*Every night, before Ms. Bree retired to bed, I sprayed her braids and ends with a bit of water and applied Shea butter Leave in conditioner. Then I placed a Child's Satin Sleep Cap on her head.

*Each morning, before Ms. Bree went to school: 

1.  I removed each pony tail and sprayed the roots with a bit of water.

2. After slightly wetting the hair  (from the roots to the beginning of the braids), I used a dab of Cantu Shea Butter and Coconut Oil (I rubbed this mixture in my hands, to ensure it was mixed well).

3. I then applied the thoroughly combined butter/oil to the root and worked my way up the beginning of the braids. 
4. After I applied the thoroughly combined butter/oil, I then combed the hair from the root to the beginning of the braids.  (I did this to ensure the hair was smooth and neat).

5. Lastly, I retouched the ends of each braid with Kinky Curly Curling Custard to ensure that the ends maintained that fresh, neatly styled look.    

Our next look will be Box Braids with beads on each end.  This will be a never before attempted hairstyle for me and a brand new look for Ms Bree!
