I made my first foray into putting yarn twists in Norah's hair. She's not a fan of having her hair done, but she does love the finished product. A great tutorial is available at Chocolate Hair, Vanilla Care if you're interested in trying them out for yourself. The style is supposed to be a good way of giving her scalp a rest from the styles we often use that require her hair to be pulled toward the center of her scalp. In addition, yarn was soaked first in coconut and olive oils, so it's supposed to provide her hair with plenty of moisture during this dry weather. I didn't do a perfect job, but the braids took three separate styling sessions to put in - so I'm really glad it looks presentable!
