Rolled Mohawk on Natural Hair

I recently posted the following pics on Facebook and I received a few questions about how I achieved the style. 

I decided to do a quick post that shows exactly what I did to create Anisa's rolled mohawk look. 

The Steps

I started with clean, moisturized and detangled hair. Next, I created several ponytails in a mohawk formation. I twisted the ponytails as a way to keep the hair tangle free until I was ready to create the rolls. 

I began creating the rolls in the back and worked my way to the front. For each roll I simply separated the twists into 2 sections, rolled each section separately and pinned them into place. 

I continued in the same fashion until I reached the front. 

Each roll was rolled towards the back except the last two rolls in the front. I separated the front twist into 4 sections. Two of the sections were rolled towards the back and two were rolled towards the front. 

The Result

What Changed?
Anisa's hair looks a little different from the first style. This is due to her recent eczema flair ups. Her hair/scalp are resting now so I created very loose ponytails. Her hair/scalp were also heavily moisturized prior to styling. 

Bedtime Prep
I remove all pins from her hair prior to bedtime. The ponytails were also loosened even more. She sleeps with a satin bonnet and a satin pillowcase.
