Here's a quick style I have done on my nieces!
This is my first attempt on my own head, which you'll be able to tell with my crooked parts.
I don't braid my own hair because it's far too frustrating.
First, I divide the hair into 3 parts.
I will have braids come up the sides, meeting at the middle where I live some hair out
(hair that is to be twiseted later).
Each side of my head has 9, unfortunately, crooked braids.
Right Side! Left Side!
Once I am done, I'll have a bunch of hair collected in the middle.
Here ae some better shots.
This is my BIG o' forehead and my MINI afro!
This is the product I will be using: Olive Styling Gel by IC.
Cost: $4.00-$5.00 (with taxes)
I begin by taking a fair share (1 tablespoon) of gel in my hand.
I pick up my hair, based on how big and thick I want my twists to be.
I put my tablespoon of gel on my selected hair. And I begin to twist the 2 halves together, into one!I'm not balding. First day (until the twist out) there will be spots in your hair, unless you comb it out (at the root, as not to undo all of the curl).
Big O' Forehead again! Can't seem to cover it up.
Day II-Twist out
(I unravel each of the 2 strand twists)
Side Shot of Twist Out!
Notice I can continue to split twists apart to get even smaller, fuller curls.
