I’ve been braiding my hair lately to cut back on the frizzies. My first braid out this Sunday didn’t come out to great. I think this was because I didn’t have them braided long enough, I didn’t wet my hair, and I braided them to big. In fact, some braids unraveled. When I took the braids down I got some pattern but nothing great.
I braided them again on Monday and took them down today, Wednesday. I moistened each section (which consisted of 6 locs) and tightly braided them down. I put a rubberband on the tip of it to prevent unraveling. Although, sleeping on them was horrible, the braidout ended up very nice.
