Tresses Thursday 12/22/16

Hello all, and welcome to another Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. In this week’s post I experimented and tried something new. 😀 My part Choctaw mom, milamoki, taught me these Native American  braids.

First, I washed my hair using Andalou hair products and put Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner, using a thick-toothed comb to distribute it thoroughly through my hair. Secondly, I part my hair on the right side. I section some hair for the braids on either side of the part, down and past my ear a bit, then gather the rest of the hair and twist it into a bun to be dealt with later. Next I braid the hair on either side of my head, left first then right. Grabbing an equal amount of hair for each braid strand and trying to keep the braid tight and neat was the most challenging part for me. Once finished the braids, I unbun the rest of the hair, comb through it, and use two hair ties to make a low pony tail on the left side, which is temporary. I then proceed to section the hair and make four braids. Lastly, I remove the hair ties keeping the pony in place and wrap the braids around it, using a bobby pin and a hair clip to keep the end of the braids in place.

And voila, there you have it!
