We got brave! A full head of twists. And in a lovely surprise, Violet's style was selected to appear on my "go to" favorite blog for natural curly hair care.
You can see her post HERE.
Here is the narrative I sent in with the photos:
"Ms. V joined our family when she was 11 months old... with the tiniest little coils we had ever seen. It was tough, but we suppressed our styling-desires until her hair reached 5 inches soaking wet. Between 11 - 23 months, we washed/conditioned/detangled once a week (using Blended Beauty products alone) and moisturized daily, sometimes with coconut oil and sometimes with a leave in. Her hair grew insanely fast and just before her second birthday, we got brave.
Armed with freshly washed and detangled hair (along with a big bowl of popcorn... Ms. V's favorite), we tackled her first "full head" style: Rope Twists... the style I loved most even before we met Ms. V. Honestly, it's probably some hybrid of 2-strand twists and rope twists... my first attempt!) We did no parts, no bands, and just used Blended Beauty's Jelly Cream to add some hold to her damp hair. She did fabulously and sat still for the 40 minutes it took me to figure it out. Her movie of choice: ... in April. But hey, it worked.
The twists only lasted a few days before the fuzz-factor took over the back of her head. The biggest surprise of the whole experience - how much we loved the twist out on her sweet little face. She loved both styles too, and kept telling her mirror image how pretty her hair was. I am excited for the many options and styles in our future!"
