So she seems to like the poof that is her hair following a day in braids, so here' s a super easy way to keep it somewhat controlled but still semi-down so she can enjoy the poof.
This do is also easy to modify! Just section off the hair in front and starting at the sections by her ears put into an elastic. do the same with the next section adding the hair from the first section. When you get to the middle, just pull it all together into a half pony.
