Novella: Winter is here, and you know what
that means, it’s protective style season. Are you looking for a simple protective style
this winter for your toddler? Well guess what, in this video I’m going to show you exactly
how I achieve this simple protective hairstyle on my toddler’s hair.
Hey guys, it’s Novella from Naturally Crowned. For all your natural hair tips, advice, and

I’ve already started twisting her hair on this side of her hair off camera, so I’m now
going to show you step by step how I achieve these twists. So, I’m now going to part her hair with a Rat Tail comb. I like
to use a Rat Tail comb because it provides very neat partings, and the partings also
come out very straight as well. (music 00:01:21).
I’m now going to apply Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter, focusing on the ends
of the hair. As you know, that’s the driest part of the hair. And then I’m going to work
my way up. The Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter really keeps her moisturized in the
twist. And it also eliminates frizz, and makes the twist just look very smooth and shiny.
If you haven’t seen the video of how I prep my toddler’s hair for a protective style,
so before I do this actual style, click the link in the top right hand corner of this
video once you’ve finished watching this, and then you can go check that out.
I’m now applying the Curls Blueberry Bliss Control paste to the edges and the perimeter
of this section. Now, this is a tip, when you do this, you do not have to tie the elastic
bands very tightly. This gives the illusion of a tighter, sleeker look, without actually
having to tie the elastic band very tightly. So, I’m now going to wrap the elastic bands
around this section of her hair. Now, only wrap it around three to four times maximum.
You don’t want to wrap the elastic band around the hair too tightly, it will cause a lot
of tension, and cause you bumps and breakage. And you don’t want that to happen.
So, another tip for you, before you use elastic bands, soak the elastic bands in some oil.
Now, this will provide the elastic band some kind of lubrication and a bit of slip. This
will reduce breakage also. You also want to make sure that the base of the hair where
you’re going to put the elastic bands is well moisturized. If you’ve watched my how to prep
your toddler’s hair for protective style video, you will notice that I did moisturize her
hair very well before. And I’ve also re-moisturized her hair with the Almond Jai Twisting Butter.
So, that area is very moisturized, so it will not cause any breakage.
Guys, comment below, do you use elastic bands for your toddler’s hair when you’re doing
a protective hairstyle? I’m interested to know.
The final tip for you guys is when you’re removing a twist, always cut the elastic bands
out, instead of pulling them out. I find this so much more easier. When you cut the elastic
bands out, one, you’re not using any hair, there’s no breakage, there’s no tangles, it’s
very easy. Cut it out and you’re good to go.
(music 00:04:17). Okay guys, so now you know how to achieve
this simple protective hairstyle for winter. I’ve written a guide to help you further understand
how to understand elastic bands in your protective hairstyles without it causing major breakage.
I’ve got a bonus for you as well. The bonus shows you how I make my growth oil, which
I apply to my daughter’s scalp next in this video. But to get the video, you need to click
the link in the description box below this video to be able to get access to this guide.
(music 00:08:34). This style lasts up to two weeks. I will re-moisturize
during the week to keep it moisturized. In the second week I will let her wear her hair
like this, half up half down. I’ll brush the edges first, and then apply a little bit of
edge control, and then she’s good to go. Did you enjoy this video, guys? If you did,
