BB's Braided, Twisted Bun-Tail!

Pin It
Hey all!!

So, after BB rocked her Breast Cancer Awareness Style for a couple of days, I decided to give her a little special change w/her puff in the back... She isn't the best with keeping her hair detangled properly, and I don't want to cut three MORE inches off, so I decided to step in and 'goodie' it up a bit!!

What I used:

Proclaim Sapphire Bergamot Hair & Scalp Conditioner


The front of her hair was still intact, so I simply let the braids loose a bit and greased her hair up really nicely... YES, folks... I USE:

No shame in my game!! HAHA!! It works for us, and THE GROWTH DON'T LIE... you feel a sista?!?! :)


I then took her curly puff down, parted it, and put it in two ponytails.  I then braided the ponytails and put it up in a twisted bun type deal (I used a few bobby pins to keep it in place).  And VIOLA!!! DONE AND DONE!

The process...and the results! :) 

I'm so happy I did this, because with all the rain we are dealing with this week, it's all protected and I won't have to deal with any detangling sessions! :)

Everyone is happy... :) So, you know what that is right?!?! A WIN/WIN for everybody!!

I hope you all enjoyed this blog!! Make sure to spread the word, folks!! :) Thanks!

Keep Watching,

Char, you do such an amazing job with your girls' hair! Look how healthy and beautiful BB's hair is. Great job, Mama!

Nikki's HairThoughts * Thank you so much!! I try to make sure they are always RIGHT with it about the head! :) -- Her hair is VERY healthy now... When I let her do it herself a year ago, she had it a mess, but after the three inches off and me getting back in there and doing it myself, it's grown a lot and it's ALL healthy!! :)Praise God! :)

Thanks for commenting,

I've heard that water and grease used as a sealant on the ends worked wonderfully :) Pretty style

Lol girl you are too funny with that big GREASE pic! Its the truth tho! Whatever works for you go 'head!

I see lil choca in the bg, heyyy baby!

Love this style. On my to-do!!

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Diva Locks * Yes ma'am!! It helps to keep the ends from drying out... Many sistas are walking around with wonderfully moisturized roots, but when it comes closer to the tips, their hair becomes dry and brittle and split... Naturals tend to stay away from grease, not knowing that if used correctly, it's a PLUS for their hair... And to keep it from having to be cut every month or so... :)

Thank you so much!

Char,its so funny that you say you let BB do her own hair but took over again because it was a mess. That is the same thing I went through with Ally. I think I turned her loose too soon, and she just made a mess of it. Does BB appreciate that you regained some control? You're doing a great job, I love the way you mixed this style up. And Li'l Bit says she LOVES 'that girl's big pretty smile'.

Oh!! And we use grease over here too! Normally just on braids for hold, strength, and shine. But it works!

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Elizabeth * Girl, she is SO happy I regained control over her hair... She had it looking a mess!!! A TERRIBLE mess... And she makes sure to cover it daily and keep it RIGHT and TIGHT.

BB says, "Thank you, Li'l Bit!!!"

Yaaaaay for grease!! It works great!!

Thank you for commenting!!
