Braids and a Beanie

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

My most recent braidout turned out great and I wore it like that for about five days before rewetting it and sporting a puff for another couple of days. I got around to finally washing and detangling it a few days ago, and since then I've just been wearing my hair in about 16 braids to keep it stretched and tangle-free. This style has been super low maintenance, which I love! And of course this time low maintenance also meant low manipulation, which is a major goal of mine in my winter hair care plan. Most of the time I just pin up my braids and keep them covered under a beanie hat when I step out in the chilly fall weather (see pictures below). At night before bedtime I mist my hair with water to moisturize and then seal in the moisture with either my oil mix (Extra virgin olive oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil and vitamin E oil) or with my Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream - concentrating on the ends. I randomly repeat this moisture + seal process as needed depending on how my braids feel throughout the day - there is not much moisture to be had in the cold, dry winter air and my hair seems to get thirsty more often! I plan on wearing this quasi-protective style for at least the next few days, but I'm thinking for Turkey Day I will probably take down my braids and sport another braidout :)

  1. Very pretty! I've been doing this for about a week. I wear my satin bonnet under the beanie for protection.

  2. @ Tanya...Thanks! I love how easy this style is because some weeks I just don't want to fuss with my hair! LOL. How awesome that it doubles as a protective style too!
