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.
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.
That’s just it nothing much and works perfect. You know what? With these successful braid outs, braids have made it to my list of protective styles while on this #stayhome period.
If you can purchase the mikalla leave-in, how about you try some braid outs and let me know how that works for you and if you’ve tried it already lemme know how that went. If you have tried braid outs without curling cream share what you used and the outcome.
