Style Post: Washday Ft. Easy 5 minutes Knotted Updo

Updo Protective Style

When I saw KLP @ SavingOurStrands' knotted updo a while ago, I made a mental note to try it out someday. The day finally came on my last washday. I was not even sure it would look good enough for me to leave it as my protective style for the week. No harm in trying right.

Of course I had to make my hair clean and conditioned first.

  • Deep conditioned on slightly damp hair with ORS Replenishing Conditioner for 20 minutes with heat.
  • Shampoo'd with Creme of Nature Moisture and Shine Sulphate-free Shampoo.
  • Conditioned for 5 minutes with Alberto VO5 Herbal Escapes Sun Kissed Raspberry with chamomile extract Balancing Conditioner.
  • Tshirt-dried for about 30 minutes, sealed with Grapeseed oil, applied Megagrowth Profectiv Daily Leave-in Strengthener, detangled in sections and air-dried.
  • I oiled my scalp when my hair was dry and followed the pictorial below

My Result
5 minutes protective style

I love love love this updo, so easy and quick to do but looks intricate and complex. I also love the fact that the ends of the hair are well tucked away. This updo has come to stay in my look book. It's my numero uno lazy protective style for now. 

If you have never tried it you should. Check here for a more detailed tutorial.
