SOS: Protective Styling- Only Minutes to Win it

I love the "Minute to Win it" protective styling series because all of the styles have "legs"; Meaning that once you've mastered it, you can change up small pieces of the puzzle and create a completely different style! Today, I want to introduce you to my take on Keyda's French Braid style.

Quick How to: 
  1. Detangle and moisturize your hair. 
  2. Split your hair in half from front to back. Flip out of the way. Then create a deep side part. Pull this section (only) into a double strand flat twist. Twist complete to the bottom of your hair. 
  3. Take this twist and coil it into itself, to create a pseudo-bang. Secure the coil with a bobby pin. 
  4. Dutch braid the back two sections and use a metal-free elastic to secure a ponytail. 
  5. Twist your pony into a bun. Secure with bobby pins.
I love jazzing this style up with flower accessories to make it just a little more special. It also holds up extremely well. Simply cover with a satin bonnet at night and it can last for 2-3 days. Who says that heat free protective styling is boring?

Un mil besitos
