I was searching You-tube one night looking for a style that will last a few days. I really was not in the mood for a lot of twisting or braiding so the style had to be quick and easy. I came across one of Naptural85’s tutorials that I have watched many many times. It’s her Quick and Easy Summer Hairstyle video. If you have not seen this video check it out.



This was just what I was looking for so I tried to recreate this style. Instead of pulling the hair up I left it down. 

Beginning with hair that was cleaned with Suave Shea Almond shampoo and followed up with Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair deep conditioner, I styled with Beautiful Textures Curl Control Defining Pudding. After about 20 – 25 minutes of styling and letting twists dry overnight here are the results:


I really liked the definition achieved from the twist out. The Beautiful Textures products left my hair feeling moisturized, soft and bouncy . I did my hair on a Sunday night and it lasted until Wednesday. At night I re-twisted the back with big chunky twist and misted with a mix of water, grapeseed oil and peppermint oil. No bonnet, its been too hot. In the morning, untwist, pin down front twist and head out the door.

When you are looking for a style to try where do you look for inspiration?
