|french braids on stretched hair|
This post is a bit late. I used to do a series called "Sunday Hair" about two years ago but stopped for no valid reason. Basically it is the hairstyle that I wore to church the previous sunday. I am going to try to be consistent with that.
After washing my hair and doing a henna gloss treatment this past weekend,
it took a while for my hair to get dry. There was not enough time for me to twist my hair before sunday. So I came up with these french braids. The last time my hair was long enough to do these braids was in 2009. Since then I have had massive breakage from my hair being colored. I am glad that my hair seems healthy again.
I am hooked on this African threading,
which is what I used to stretch my hair for this style.
These French Braids were the simplest and quickest style I could come up with on a sunday morning.
This has to be done on stretched hair, otherwise , your hair may break if it is not long enough.
I divided my hair into two sections with a part in the middle. I then cornrowed each side grabbing BIG sections of hair, because, I did not want the braids to be tight at all.
The ends were crossed over one another and secured with a pin.
I really loved this. It was so simple and easy to do. I also love the fact that my ends were all hidden away.
