Updos, one of the magnificent things about natural tightly curled hair is it's ability to stay put, undisturbed, up high or lowly placed in the uniqueness of our own design. On the down side, this often means that our hair has to be prepared, sometimes over night, to change from one style to another. So, check out this simple braided updo or side-do, a quick, easy, longlasting way to beautiful style, when nothing else will work.
(aFRO HAIR TIP #1)
(If hair feels too stiff to move freely, then moisturise first with water, by gently passing your wet hands through your hair, or/and a spritz leave-in like atrActiva's Detangling Mist, and then, a styler moisturiser like Brillantina).

(aFRO HAIR TIP #2)
(If hair is entwined with itself, like when freshly out of a worn out twist out, DON'T comb or brush!!! Instead, take your time to moisturise, as in aFRO HAIR TIP #1, then separate hair with fingers enough so that hair can be braided or twist and work with the curl pattern the previous style created).
PLEASE NOTE: You do not need long, or freshly washed, blowdried and detangled hair for this one!!!
