I’m coming along to being 7 months pregnant YAY!! Even though it’s an exciting moment it’s also getting about that time where I will be a fool to say that my styles haven’t been either lazy styles or styles that are going to last me a week or two. If I’m lucky it will be two. When having a two year old and pregnant there is no way that I can sit up and do my hair for hours without some type of interruption. I mean come on now I can’t even go to the bathroom by myself these days. I know TMI but if you have children you know exactly what I’m talking about your privacy is long gone. I have to literally wait until my son is asleep to try to fit in hair time. My styles usually are styles that don’t require much effort or work throughout the week unless the day that is done. Here are my top 3 styles for the pregnant mama.
Updo on Two Strand Twists
I use to do my hair in an updo while my hair was out but that lead to my hair getting dry fast and will need to be moisturized more often. Now you know “ain’t nobody got time for that” my arms are going to hurt and my feet are too swollen for that mess. So, I do small two strand twist in my hair and I don’t even worry about having straight parts until I’m at the front. Two strand twists can be done while sitting down which makes it a lot easier on my feet. We are expanding to videos soon so if you want to see a video about this let me know in the comments. Anywho, after my hair is two strand twisted I do a top knot bun or updo that can last for the week. You can check out 4aDanielles up do below for some inspiration.

Cornrow with twists or braids
I saw that this style was coming back and I immediately went to it. It took literally less than an hour to do while still looking fly for the week. All you need is your fav styling gel my personal new fave is Curls Blueberry Bliss Edge Control. It smells good plus last longer than a day with no flakes. For this style I take my comb to begin to part my hair, then I place my gel on the edges for a sleek look then begin to twist my hair all the way down. I continue to do this for each parted section. I’ll have about five twists and put a bun on the bottom so I’m good to go. If you want to add hair check out how Maria Antonitte did her cornrow braids below.
