Braid Out Experiment

I decided to try a braid out after seeing how gorgeous Makeupanbeautyjunkie’s was on YouTube. (Click here to check her video out). I wasn’t 100% pleased with the results, but I didn’t hate them either. I will say that the later it got in the day after I took the braids out, the better I liked it. Take a look at my latest shopaHAULism post if you would like to see what it looked like by the end of that day. The video below shows how I achieved my first braid out using Qhemet Biologics Alma & Olive Heavy Cream.

What are some of your tips to getting a fluffy (not frizzy) braid out?

My First Semi-Successful Flat Twist-Out

1st Day Hair

Let me preface this post by saying, I’m not very good at actual hairstyles. In fact, I never really even washed my own hair until I was fully natural. That is actually one of the reasons that I wanted to start this blog. I want women to see that with practice and patience, anyone can manage thier natural hair.

Anyway, I decided to try another flat twist-out to see if it would look any better since my hair has grown out some. Last time I tried this, my hair was a few inches shorter and I felt that it just didn’t fall right in a twist-out. This time around, I started out on a few day old wash and go. I flat twisted my hair into 8 twists using a little water and Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I sealed the moisture in with Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey. I was able to get 4 days in before I had to wash again. I maintained my hair by flat twisting in larger sections every night. Scroll down to see more pictures.
