Braid out #2.

I did a braid out today!
About two days ago, I moisturized my hair with raw shea butter and plaited my hair. There were about 13-15 plaits. I kept them in for 2 days, because sadly I don't leave the comfort of my own home.

I used coconut oil on my fingers to take them out. I then used a pick at my roots for fullness and to hide the ugly parts. I think it came out beautiful! I've never been as successful with braidouts as I was today. *claps*

Stay tuned for yarn braids/genie locs! :)

Twist Updo!


1. Part your hair in two sections; front and back. (Part from ear to ear)
2. Part the front section into three sections; left side, top, right side.
3. Twist four flat twists in a swooping motion on the left and right sides.
4. For the top section, create very small single twists to the side you want your bang to lay.
5. Pin the bang to the side with bobby pins. (My bang is in a swirl motion)
6. Create chunky twists for the whole back section.
7. Pin up back in any desired way.

Works best on dry or damp, stretched hair.
