I’ve written many times about how important it is to braid the length of a braid tightly. I realize some braiders have a technique that does not allow them to braid tight enough for the braids (big or mini) to last a long time. I think technique is also the key to braidouts with good […]
I spent my 4-day Thanksgiving weekend (plus a few days during the week) braiding my hair. I did things a little different from my usual routine (which can be found in the ebook).
I was feeling lazy so I washed with VO5 sulfate shampoo and deep conditioned for […]
This time around I braided […]
Here’ s a quick rundown of how I trim my mini braids. The pics are low budget and my nails look awful, lol…so I will retake the pics the next time I have mini braids in.
It’s been a whole month…yay! I’ll have these in for about another 1-2 weeks. I have a wedding to attend on the 19th and I’m flat ironing my hair for it. Hopefully the Florida humidity won’t have me looking a hot mess.
This update was actually due to be posted yesterday, but I totally forgot. […]
For the past 6 years or so (as a relaxed head, natural, relaxed and natural again) I’ve deep conditioned my hair every weekend.

If you are new to self-braiding, one of the most difficult things to master is braiding the back of your head. It took me a while to really get the hang of it, but now I can braid without a mirror. Here are some tips for anyone who has trouble braiding this area…
Use a […]
Here’s a list of tips to keep in mind while undoing your mini braids. I’m almost half way through the process of taking out my braids that were started on May 26th, I believe.
1. Hair should be well moisturized.
Soft, moisturized braids are much easier to pull apart. My hair at the moment has […]
It’s official. I will be taking out these braids. I ultimately decided to take these mini braids out because of some tension at my roots. Each and every strand doesn’t grow in at the same rate. When moving my braids and stretching out the new growth, I felt a tug on a few strands Â within […]
