My Braidout Updated
In the past, I would divide my hair straight down the middle, and do two large braids for a loose braidout. Yet, I noticed that constantly parting my hair down the middle was creating an irritating gap, as my hair was getting used to the part and would remain split down the middle even after I would finger comb through it. I then started creating three braids: two in the front and one in the back, hoping to eliminate this problem. In fact, that's how I braided my hair in my braidout tutorial (Get it here: Braidout Tutorial).
Well, today I'm doing something different. I've now started dividing my hair into five sections: three going towards the back, and two on the sides. This way, my hair blends together perfectly, and I don't have to do much finger combing to get it to look right. Here's what it looks like braided:
And here's what it looks like once I've taken the braids out:
Below is a shot of me separating the waves as I finger comb through my hair:
Here's the finished result!
I used good ol' water and Coconut Oil by Proline to set the braids. And of course, I used some Isoplus gel around my edges to finish the look. I get more texture throughout my hair this way, and I love it!
