Turn Your Old ‘Fro Into a Protective Style

Wearing a ‘fro is one of my favorite things to do! I love the look and I love anything that’s BIG. But after about a week, your ‘fro starts looking crazy. You either have to wash it and start all over or turn it into a entirely new style. If your a busy woman like I am, you probably would rather turn it into a quick style that’s presentable.OldFro3

That’s where this handy tutorial comes into play! In 10 minutes you can change your fro into my a sexy, stylish two-strand twist bun.

1) To re-moisturize my hair I used two products from Arvazallia; Arvazallia Premium Argan Oil Hair Treatment and Ultra Curl Defining Cream with Argan Oil.

2) In medium sections I two-strand twisted my hair. When you are doing your two-strand twist, make sure to twist a little bit tighter at the root because this is going to give your twists definition while it’s in the bun.

3) I gathered up my hair and placed a donut bun in the middle of my twist. A donut bun will give your bun a nice, full look. To achieve a realistic bun, I wrap kinky curly hair around the bun before I use it on my head. This ensures that if there are gaps in your bun you will see hair  that matches your own and not a fake looking donut.Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 9.53.00 AM Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 9.51.53 AM

4) Wrap your twists over the top of  the donut bun. Secure the twist to the donut bun with bobby pins. And lastly, place an elastic band around the bun to give it shape.Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 9.49.52 AM
