Some of the great blogs I’ve now joined are: Beads, Braids and Beyond Tweeny Hair and Braid with Me.
I’ve found a great product line called Bee Mine. As of now I only have two products from them, but by my next post, I’ll have more! Currently I have Juicy Moisturizing Daily Spritz and Bee Hold Curly Butter. I am in love with the curly butter. Next I will be ordering their daily moisturizing conditioner. That curly butter is about the business! I can totally tell a difference in how well it braids. I’m hoping it keeps the frizzies tame and that I can use it for braid outs and twist outs.
Let’s get on to the style! I was inspired by this style from Braid with Me. I aspire to be as detailed and intricate with Bri’s styles as she is with her daughter’s. Especially with Bri getting older, I want to get a little fancy with her styles. This is my first attempt at this style of cornrows. I don’t know what they’re called. And overall it wasn’t super complicated. I’m proud of myself! My only critique of myself is that the middle set of braids, the section is too large. Her hair is really thick and it seems as if it’s double the thickness at the crown of her head. I think that would have allowed that center braid to not be as bulky.
I decided to do twists on the extra hair to change things up. Her hair is too dry to just be out at this time. I’m hoping the moisturizer I’m going to order will help with that.
Overall, this didn’t take any longer than any other style for me. I think I started last night at maybe 5. Finished up with majority except the top set of braids by 7:45. There were also breaks and a dinner break. It took me less than an hour to complete the rest this morning. Definitely less than 3 hours. And I expect it to last 2 weeks.
Products used are the Bee Mine Juicy Daily Moisturizer and Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter.
I’m going to beef up her hair bow collection to go along with more of her styles like this that are beadless. I’ve found quite a few styles that I want to try out and will be sharing them here as well.
