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!

Hello all! Welcome to Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. In this week’s post I demonstrate how quickly my hair dries and shrinks right after washing. I used to hate that my hair was so poofy but now I view it as my awesome mane.

Hello all! Welcome to Tresses Thursday, where I share hair updates, hairstyles, and tips. For this week’s post I have two simple braids in the back and twisted the hair in the front into two side buns.

 So, how did I make this hair style? First, I washed my hair using Andalou hair products and afterwards used Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner . Secondly, I used a thick-tooth comb to comb out my hair as well as distribute the leave in conditioner thoroughly. Thirdly, I part the hair into four sections, parting in such a way so that more hair is in the back two sections than the front two. Next, I twist both front sections and one back section in to temporary buns so the hair can stay sectioned. Then, I take the free back section and braid it. I do the same to the other side. Now that the back is finished, I start on the front. I untwist a front bun, comb it out, then begin to twist the hair along my head back towards my ear. Once to the ear, I twist the remaining hair into a bun on the side that looks coiled. I repeat the process for the last temporary bun, twisting the hair along my head towards my ear, then twisting it into a coil bun.

And voila, there you have it!
