Thank you for stopping by and welcome to my blog guys.

I don’t know why I never wore braid outs quite often but I think it’s all because of the posts about mastering and perfecting braid outs struggle. Have seen a couple of failed braid out posts that got me like, “nah, that ain’t my struggle.”

So, I had my first braid out late last year and it was so perfect and juicy for a first trial. I never tried braid outs again until a week or so ago. Am so much into two or three strand twists or not so perfect cornrows.

I always thought to get defined, juicy and bouncy curls one will need a curling cream but guess what my leave-in gives the best curls and definition. I once tried a wash and go with the leave-in the results were amazing. I’ll be doing a post about that too and may be a review on my holy grail leave-in.

You’ve heard about pinning your braids to keep them stretched? Well, I love to keep my ends tucked

To get the bomb braid out my procedure is pretty simple.

  • Start with freshly washed, detangled and conditioned hair
  • The hair should be damp but if dry spritz water until damp.
  • Section into two side halves or four ,depends on your volume and length too
  • Apply leave-in on each section before braiding. Mikalla leave-in gives me gorgeous curls

  • Braid your curly sections and try not to borrow hair to avoid frizz while taking down the braids.
  • Curl the ends of the braids to get full length definition.
  • Seal in with an oil or butter of choice.
  • Take the braids down when they are fully dry. NEVER take them down if your hair is damp say no a failed braid out by letting your braids dry.
