New Braids Finally In

Actually my braids are two weeks old, but I just got the chance to post and add pictures. This time around I did notice a little more growth, but of course I kept the braids in for three months. I don't think I will attempt that again because they took forever to take down.

I also noticed that my ends felt dryer than last time. I really didn't take care of them though, so this time I'll be sure to moisturize them more in-between washes and after each wash.

Take a look at the new growth I had

I had to be extremely careful taking them out because they were very tangled - with old sheded hair- especially closer to my scalp. When I got tired and found myself rushing I stopped and continued the next day.

Braids out = Wild hair

But, there's always that one missed braid

My new larger box braids

My ends felt a little crunchy so I dusted them after braiding

52 little curly ends (yep I counted them :o)

Of course, I only wore them down for a few hours then went right back to my typical bun - I don't know why I can't let go of that tired bun. I am really going to do two-stand twists for my next protective style. I plan on keeping these in for about one month.

Peace and Blessings

I decided to put in bigger box braids.

First and foremost...YOU WERE THERE!!!! Was it as cold as they said it was? I wish I was there.

Congrats on the new hair growth! It always feels so good when your hair grows. Your hair is long!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my post. I have the book as well and I plan on reading it this weekend. I'm going on a cruise on Saturday, so I thought I would bring it with me.

I love the way you make your braids! and they're always so neat, I wish I had the steady hand to make such parts and the grip to make the plaits! Teach me please :D
