Cornrows with threaded ends adorned with beads


  






I thought I should cornrow little L's hair  for fear of losing my "cornrow" skills.  This time around, I made the sections bigger because her hair is long and thick enough to do that. Thank God for African Threading that  made this possible. She has been retaining most of her length since we have been consistently using African Threading.



 The back is always the challenge for me, which is why I always start at the back.  I made 8 cornrows in the back and threaded the ends of two adjacent cornrows together. I did this to save time and because, well, the back is just so much work.



Most times, I cornrow her hair damp. Her hair breaks easily if manipulated in a dry state.



Instead of braiding the ends, I threaded them.To protect her ends from breakage, I added extra threads on the very ends and burned them for a neat look.

 I used mini barrettes to hold back the braids in the front so she can move freely.



 Her brother approves of this style and gave her a big hug for that. Wait a minute!!! I should be the one getting hugged...
