(In the top picture, she was in her swimsuit. The girl grows so fast, we had to make sure it still fit. Then she changed into jammies. :)
Ally actually loved the braidout so much, she was upset she could not wear her big hair out to school tomorrow.
Instead, what we decided to do was put her hair in 2 cornrows, super moisturized and conditioned, so she could swim that way. After swim, she will shower, take the braids out, co wash her hair and pony it up until she gets home. Here is how I prepared her braidout for the corn rows:
- First, I parted her hair down the middle, and sprayed one side with a water bottle.
- Next, I sprayed on some "Turn Me Loose" leave-in conditioner by Its Perfectly Natural, and worked it through her hair with my hands.
- Then I added some Shea Moisture's "Curl and Style Milk", and worked that through the same way.
- To seal in all this great moisture, I added It's Perfectly Natural's "Splendid Hair and Body Oil".
