Half Rows and A Braid Out
I still have very low quality pictures, but it's better than no pictures at all right? : /
I wanted to cornrow all of C's hair, but I ended up getting out of the mood to do hair so I just did this half back style with a braid out in the back. I wasn't too happy with the braid out because to me it looked too much like her natural curls, only looser.
I like the way the cornrows turned out. For this style, I parted C's hair into 2 sections, front and back. I tied the back off and started cornrowing the front section.
I was trying to do something a little more creative than just braiding straight back, so what I did was I also made some braids starting from the back of C's part line going towards her face. It made cute little 'bang' braids. As I said, I was planning to braid ALL of C's hair, which is why I braided all the cornrows to the ends instead of ending them at the part line. I put the back section into 3 big cornrows and left them in until the next morning. I think the reason the braid out didn't turn out the way I wanted it to is because I left out the Taliah Waajid lock it up gel! I just moisturized with Bee Mine curly butter. As I said before, I'm not a big fan of Bee Mine, but since I bought 2 great big tubs of the curly butter, I'm still using it once in a while. C's hair seems to soak the curly butter right up within an hour or so (and I use A LOT of it!) I also have to use something that provides hold, which is why I like the lock it up gel.
This style stayed for only 2 days. I could probably have gotten away with a 3rd day, but since it's almost the end of the school year, I want to think of something extra special to do! Hopefully I'll come up with something and have pictures for you tomorrow! :)
