When I first went completely natural again in 2009, I was OBSESSED with all of the styles that most hair forums and blogs swore by like the Twist-out, Curly Nikki's Twist-N-Curl, Braid-out, mini twists, bantu knots, bantu knot outs, etc, etc. But for some reason I was always more satisfied with the simple wash-n-go or bun and pretty much have stuck to that over the years. I have gotten a little bored with my hair lately and have even noticed that I'm not retaining as much length as I used to be
In this rough economy, I have had to cut back on my product junkie, shopaholic ways and bi-weekly visits to spas for up keep :(
Lately, I have decided to pocket the 40+ dollars I was giving to the semi-rude, limited English speaking, non-apologetic when cutting me, yet does fabulous nails asian lady at my favorite nail spa. I have now been doing my own nails for a couple months and people do not believe me when I tell them not only did I do them..but I did them in around 20 minutes.
Hello my curlies!
I want to share with you ladies one of my best kept hairstyling secrets. It lasts for up to a week at a time (for me, longer for some), quick and easy, has tons of style potential..and its low maintenance.
It’s the Braidout!!!
My Braid Out Routine...
1. I usually co-wash first, I apply my conditioner, wait 10 minutes, then comb through with wide tooth comb only after finger combing out all tangles or kinks.2. Then I apply a deep conditioner and let it sit 30 m
