    Hi I just ordered your ebook and I would like to know when I will receive it. Thanks.

  3. Bridgette says:

    Are there Pictures included in the Ebook?

    • Jay says:

      At this time there are not. I tried to have the blog and ebook be supplementary to each other. The older blog posts and tutorials on mini braids have pictures. If you have specific questions let me know and I can point you to an article or answer directly.

    This may be a little hard to explain but I have natural hair and I am in the military, more specifically,the Navy. It is quite hard to find natural protective hairstyles that are in regulations because there are hair Nazi’s that will tell you your hair isn’t in regulations. I’ve found the mini-braids to be very helpful. I was wondering if there were any styles that you have done that are in “navy standard”. Here is the link to the hair regulations

    Just cut off my locs AGAIN for a second time but already know “natural” ain’t for me. How much is your book?

  6. Tara says:

    Hi Jay. Just ordered it about an hour ago. Thanks for the quick response!

  7. Tara says:

    No problem Jay. Thanks. Can’t wait to get a few more inches of hair to braid!

    this is my fourth time natural….cycling between BC grow for 18 months, relax for 6 months then BC again and I truly want to stay natural this time. I was on LHCF when the challenge started but didn’t keep up, I get tired of having the same style for a long time and mini braids on 4 inches of hair isn’t pretty.
    I just bought the book and hope to make progress this time.

    • Jay says:

      Good luck! To switch up the look, try putting faux locs over the mini braids. If my head could take the weight of extension hair, I would try the style myself.

    Hello, I was wondering if the ebook is still available?
