summer hair care

Since summer is coming to an end I decided to recap on how we've been styling Leelee's hair. Unfortunately, we didn't do anything memorable this summer and stayed away from the heat. Ever since we participated in BBB protective style challenge before the summer, the protective styles have stuck with us. Prior to the challenge I never braided since I wasn't good at it. Leelee would wear her hair out most of the time and just style as we went out. I was always touching her hair, trying new styles or using rubberbands and ballies. This summer I probably used ballies and beads 2-3x. The majority of the time its been braided up for a few days and then worn out for a couple before being washed. See styles we've been doing here

I highly recommend protective styles and also think its perfect for the summer time. You can do boxbraids or any other style that will last long so that you don't always have to style. If you
always use beads, barettes, ballies or rubberbands it would be a great time to give those ends (hair) a break. Think of it like this: your children get a summer vacation, let their hair get a break, too! Summer is about enjoying yourself and having fun. It shouldn't have to spend too much time on doing hair. Doing a protective style for summer would help lessen the amount of time spent
On hair. You can always save the beads for school! What did you do to your child's, or your hair during the summer? Will you continue to do so?

Lol thanks girl you'll get there! I could've sworn I seen you braid GDL's hair one time. I may be good doing it on my daughter but I can't do it to save my life on my own head :(
