Three Strand Banded Twists
I think banding looks adorable on children, especially with different colored ponytail holders and accessories. I have been on a banding kick for a while now. I decided to try something a little different and do a three strand twist banded style.

A’s hair was banded for several days before I did this style. I prefer to style her hair on stretched, dry hair (twists, banding, braids) for us, this means less tangles, and less tangles mean less breakage. Although I usually style her hair dry, I make sure I use a product with good slip while combing and parting her hair. I usually use Giovanni Direct Leave-in or just plain virgin coconut oil.

This is A’s hair banded (she did not go out of the house with this messed up part, lol) and then there’s a picture of her hair after I took the ponytail holders out. I use Goody cloth covered ponytail holders. They come in a pack of several different colors and cost $2-$3, they are very easy on her hair and have great hold.

For this style, you must first know how to do a three strand twist. I made a very quick video tutorial on how to do so. To put it simply, you just take three pieces of hair, split them up evenly, and keep crossing your right section over your left section. It’s kind of like the middle section is not even there. Right over left, right over left, right over left….easy, right?

Next I got to styling her hair. All I did was put two ponytails on top, and one in the back. I did two three strand twisted banded ponytails in each ponytail.

I used shea butter mixed with coconut oil for this style, and a little ORS Lock & Twist Gel for her edges. Begin doing a three strand twist, go 1.5-2 inches down, stop, and add your Goody ouchless ponytail holder. Repeat until you get about 1-2 inches to the end, then add your beads or barrettes. This style took between 20-30 minutes.

    I just discovered your blog and I don't even have children :} These are great style tips for anyone with highly textured hair (i.e. banding in a way that doesn't dry out the ends). I would love to see how you get your daughter's hair stretched like this from her curly state after it's washed. Keep up the great work! Some mom's never get this down.
