Cute Easy Hairstyle for Girls: Flat Rolling Twists and Braid Out

Cute Hairstyle for Girls

Hairstyles for Girls

I wanted to take a break from the wash and go posts to show you all an easy style we did recently with flat twists or rolling twists as they are also called. Miss D wore this style for 5 days, 3 days with the 2 braids in the back and 2 days with the braid out. I used Bee Mine Curly Butter for the twists and CUSH Crème de Palm for the braid/braid out, I was curious to see how the CUSH would work for that.

Braid Out with CUSH Cosmetics


Back in the summer we brought you a review and giveaway of the natural hair and skin care line called CUSH Cosmetics, which we loved. Since, I we have had successful braid outs using pomades in the past, I decided I would use their CUSH Cosmetics Website for a braid out on D. I was in love with the results!

I had prepared her clean, detangled, wet hair in 5 braids, using the pomade on each section before braiding it. She wore the braids overnight.

How to get a Braid Out to Last for Days

This past week we did a braid out on D’s naturally curly hair and we got it to last for 3 days!!! This has never before been done by us and we’ve always wondered what the secret was! I am going to tell you what we did and how it worked for us. With the weather cooling off, we decided to do a braid out, after all it has been too hot for D to wear her hair down.

Small Braids Braid Out

Small Braids Braid Out

I have been slackin’ on my Saturday Style posts and I do apologize! I wanted to share photos of D’s braid out from her small braids that we did for the 4th of July. I removed the bands and beads, then used my fingers and the end of a rat tail comb to take out the braids. We, of course, had to add a flower clip to accessorize.

Created by Nature Product Review and Giveaway

I have recently had the oppurtunity to review a couple products from Created by Nature.

The Created by Nature line was inspired out of necessity, to have quality natural products on the market. This line was created specifically with my clients, as well as myself, in mind. My products contain only the best in natural ingredients, and in no way will I compromise the quality of this line. Having knowledge of what makes a good product, as well as being educated on healthy hair, has given me the expertise to create a great line. I pray that you love these products as much as I do.

-Aminah Lawson, Creator of Created by Nature: Hair n Body

The products:

Chinara’s Hair N Body Wash
This Castile based cleanser, is great for daily use because it is non-drying. The essential oils found in this wash are great to help deep cleanse and stimulate growth for a head of healthy hair and healthy skin. This Shampoo comes in two formulas, Oily/normal (Tea Tree) and normal/dry (Lavender)

Price: .00 8oz

Jaja’s Hair N Body Pomade
This pomade is a combination of whipped Shea butter ,Vegetable based oils and essential oils. Use it as a body moisturizer, hairdressing or to retwist locs. Pomade is available in 8 fragrances: Almond, Honeysuckle, Lemongrass, Sweet Orange, Lavender/Vanilla,Sandalwood/Vanilla, Nag Champa, and Spicey Vanilla. NOT A FAN OF FRAGRANCE? Order unscented.

Price: .00-8oz, .00-16oz

When these products first arrived, I noticed right away the liquid consistency of the Hair n Body Wash, it kind of threw me, so I emailed Aminah, asking if perhaps it was actually the Hair n Body Oil. She promptly responded by explaining that it was a castile (oil) based shampoo, which is why it is in liquid form. This was new to me, I had never used a liquid/castile shampoo or body wash before. D and I love the scent, Aminah sent us the Lavender formula. When it was time for
D’s weekly shampoo we tried this out! I saturated her hair with water, then poured about a nickle size amount of the hair n body wash into my hand, rubbed my hands together and applied it to her hair. It doesn’t have much of a lather, but that doesn’t bother me, it seems to clean her scalp, is not drying and surprisingly does not leave her hair feeling oily. I also use this as a body wash for D and myself, it leaves our skin so soft and moisturized with no oily/greasey feeling.

After rinsing, condtioning, moisturizing and detangling, I began styling with the Hair N Body Pomade. I did some flat twists and this pomade held them nicely for 4 days, which isn’t bad considering her hair type. I put the back of her hair in braids for a braidout, I also applied a small amount of the pomade to each braid.

I loved the braidout results:

She had spent the night with her grandma, so for 2 days nothing was done to her hair, no detangling/moisturizing, nothing (even though I sent all those things), this is a before she left/after she came back comparison photo:

I didn’t think it looked too bad, considering there hadn’t been anything done to it in 2 days. All the twists still looked great. One of the rubber bands had even popped off at some point, but the twist stayed intact!

We were sent a pomade in the Lemongrass scent. It was a strong lemon smell, which is actually a good scent for us during the summer, it repells insects! I will be using this alot for her styles this summer, it has great hold and will help keep bugs away from her! This product can also be used to moisturize the skin, while I was styling her hair I added a little dab to the back of my hands, they stay dry because I wash my hands so frequently. It really provided some much need hydration to the real dry areas around my nuckles. I love multi-purpose products!

I used the Hair Wash to wash her hair during the 2 weeks she had little box braids in, it was perfect, it rinses clean, so I wasn’t worried about any shampoo being left behind in her braids.

Her braids still soaked from just being washed:

Kinky Curly Review

This “shappin” style was created using Kinky-Curly Curling Custard along with Kinky Curly Come Clean shampoo and Knot Today leave in. After I washed, detangled and moisturized I parted a square on top of her head where I created 5 rolling twists. The twists were a little stiff due to the Curling Custard, but they held for days! I braided the remaining sections of hair on each side into one braid a piece and I made four braids in the back, putting Curling Custard on each section before braiding. The next day before school I took the braids out for a really nice braid out,  we loved it!


We have been using the following Kinky-Curly products since February of this year.


Kinky-Curly TM brand hair products are formulated to add moisture, give hold without drying hair out and also offer protection from the elements.
Kinky-Curly TM brand is a proud signer of The Compact for Cosmetics. We are committed to developing hair products that not only deliver results but also nourish your hair with natural organic ingredients

*no petroleum *no silicone *no plastics *no mineral oil *no carbomer

*no acrylics *alcohol free *wax free *paraben free

Come Clean Shampoo – I really like the shampoo , it doesn’t dry her hair out, it gets rid of any build up and leaves her hair shiny and healthy looking.

Knot Today – I also really like this detangler, I’ve read mixed reviews about it, but it really works well for us. The tangles side right out with this and a wide tooth comb. It is not moisturizing but it is a good detangler.

Curling Custard – The texture of this product is just that, a custard feel, it doesn’t really bother me, although I do prefer creamy products. It smells vanilla, possibly? It does make her hair a little crunchy especially when the hair first dries. After the first day we will spritz with a water/conditioner mix to revive her curls and they become softer and not as crunchy feeling. Her curls always look nice with this product and they stay looking good, they aren’t frizzed out by the days end.  I love to use this product for braid/twist outs. When I use it for braid outs and twist outs her hair is not crunchy, as long as I don’t get too much. The Curling Custard produces amazing braid outs and twist outs for us!

The company says use Kinky-Curly products in conjunction with each other and no other brands or products because it may cause undesirable effects. I still condition with HEHH (old formula) and moisturize with Bee Mine Dejas Hair Milk and it doesn’t seem to create any problems.

This is Ds hair after being washed, conditioned, detangled,  moisturized, and having the Curling Custard raked through her hair.

Her hair is still very wet:

It is still damp at this point:


Here it is completely dry:
